Budget: Close to $1000 minus OS/Keyboard. They're listed as just a reminder.

Intent: Casual gaming. 1080p 60FPS. Most games I play are multiple years old. A lot of RTS/RPG. Think Starcraft and Diablo. I also want to be able to play some newer games that pique my interest like Subnautica and Star Citizen. Preferably on high/ultra.

No PSU because I already have one, same with mouse and monitor.

I would get a cheaper cooler and maybe a better GPU.

If you don't plan on overclocking, you can get a regular i5 6600 and an h170 mobo. Save you the extra bucks for a GTX 1070. That'll be more future proof :)
