After 3 weeks of looking at every build I could find, reading comments, and trying (and I feel like probably failing) to understand some of the ins and outs of the various components, I thought this seemed reasonable. I'm not sure that the MB is correct (is SLI with a 1070 likely to be necessary in the next 2-3 years?). Space is not an issue; I just liked the look of the case.
I'm switching over from an Xbox and a "gaming" laptop (y70 with gtx860m and i7-4710), but would like to have something a bit more future-proofed. I'm hoping to play things like BF1, Fallout, Deus Ex, etc with high settings. I'm not excited about VR, but I suppose it would be reasonable to plan for it. This all started when I tried to play Witcher 3 on the laptop and was horribly disappointed, though it did get better with tweaking and driver updates. Any and all suggestions appreciated. Budget is $1200, the closer to $1000 the better, but willing to pay a bit extra for quality.
