I've finally saved up enough money to convert to PC gaming. I would like some opinion on this build (what's good/bad and why) or another build around the same price. My budget is 1500, would like to upgrade in the future, want to play dayz and ark, Intel over AMD. Thanks.

I would definitely consider getting more ram. Also why not get the newer Z170 Skylakes. $1500 is a pretty large budget.
