If I wanted to record while gaming or live stream, should I get the i7 6700k instead?
If you have the money, it would be best to get it.
Well what exactly are you wanting to do with this build? If you can, please answer the following questions:
Also, I noticed you had a WiFi adapter, is that really necessary? And are you going to be using CDs and DVDs, cause if not you can scrap that.
Well, my intended use is mostly just gaming, but I will also be editing videos, using photoshop, after affects, and all that.. so I switched the i5 with an i7.
Performance-wise Im hoping to get at least 50+ fps on ultra settings for most games. I probably will be recording too, but likely with 1080 resolution.
My budget was $1000, but I raised it to $1500. I would rather spend an extra $500 on a pc that will last me a while, rather than upgrade every year or so.
Also the wifi adapter is kinda necessary because my routers over 100ft away. Trust me, I measured it :D. we have a wifi extender so it seemed like a adapter was the best way to go. I only got the optical drive to install the OS, thats about it.
You could go this direction with that budget:

This is pretty much all about the gfx card, but it also gets you the 6700K.
You would be better off getting power line adapters rather than stressing about weak Wi-Fi.
You can install Win10 from a memory stick, so the optical drive is probably redundant.
memory stick?.... oh memory stick :D
lol. thnx for the tip. saved me 20 bucks.
It's cheaper to buy an ethernet cable than an adapter. 200FT RJ45 CAT5 CAT5E BLUE ETHERNET LAN NETWORK CABLE for $13.22. The wired connection will also help you tremendously with gaming. Just get the 200ft ethernet cord and run some cable managers through your house to get the cord out of the way.
Also, you won't much difference with the i5 than the i7, though the i7 will last you a bit longer. The bit about you rather spending an extra 500 that'll last you a while, is a bit redundant. Despite what you get, the i5 or i7, as well as some of the other components, they'll last you a while. You definitely won't have to upgrade every year, possibly every 4 or so, but the same would be for the 1070 and 1080 GTX cards.
