I thought buying parts / building was cheaper, but given my lack of build experience and the availability of things like this:
I just don't know. What am I missing? This seems almost at the price of parts and comes with warranty, etc.
Can I beat this with $1500? I'm stuck, so far I have this build:
|CPU||Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor||$328.99 @ SuperBiiz|
|Memory||G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 Memory||$149.99 @ Newegg|
|Storage||A-Data Premier SP550 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive||$62.99 @ Newegg|
|Storage||Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive||$92.89 @ OutletPC|
|Video Card||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Video Card||$449.99 @ Best Buy|
|Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts|

And it's already over $1k, with no OS, no power supply (wouldn't know where to start with that), no case (don't care about looks), no network adapter, etc.. What should I do here?
EDIT: It's probably relevant to add that I use Adobe graphics software extensively, as well as dabble in 3d modeling (not rendering much at all), and game development.
