Thoughts on this one? Been so long I am definitely not up to date with technology. Did a bit of research to come up with the below:
PCPartPicker part list: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/dCqTYr
CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($324.00 @ Centre Com)
CPU Cooler: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK 68.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($55.00 @ CPL Online)
Motherboard: Asus Z170 PRO GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($235.00 @ IJK)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($97.90 @ Newegg Australia)
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($125.00 @ Umart)
Storage: Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive ($176.00 @ CPL Online)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GAMING X Video Card ($479.00 @ Scorptec)
Case: Fractal Design Define R5 (Titanium) ATX Mid Tower Case ($165.00 @ CPL Online)
Power Supply: EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($159.00 @ CPL Online)
I haven't overclocked before, but would like the option if required at a later date. Doesn't totally break the bank to add the option in. If I didn't have to I would go with the i5-6500 ($270), get rid of the CPU fan and maybe even downgrade the motherbaord to the Gigabyte H170 Gaming 3 ($189), a savings of around $140.
The m.2 version of the Samsing Evo 850 is the same price as the standard SSD so I went with that. Not sure if there would be a reason not to as it looks like my motherboard can handle it?
Power supply is probably more than I need, but for an extra $30 from the 650W version might as well go for it I thought.
Any suggestions/edits would be much appreciated. Going to bite the bullet shortly as my (very) old current PC is about to cark it.
