I have made this design with some help from the fellow pcpartpicker society.

Before I go and buy all the parts like a mad man, please review my parts and be free to criticize my build. (It is hard to not get crazy when it is your first build. You will know what I mean if you had this experience.)

I will be buying the parts from Micro Center ("_') AKA "The consumer magnet for computers"

If I am going to be recording 3 hour long 720p videos each day, how long would my hard drive last considering that I will be putting the video files only in the hard drive, not the ssd.

Thanks for the response :D

I have chosen the i7-6700 for my editing and rendering purposes and I do not plan on overclocking. I understand that the GTX 1060 cannot support SLI so there is no point of the H170 ATX motherboard. But, it is just 10 more that a micro one and I might as well have it just in case.(I have heard this Motherboard is good)

As for the Ram, I chose the 4x4gb DDR4-2133 because the motherboard only supports up to DDr4-2133 and that it was on sales. 4x4gb for 55 dollars. Is that worth the buy or should I consider buying a 2x8gb. That would increase my budget by 20 dollars.

Anyways, thanks for your response :-) , I appreciate ever response I can get.

P.S: Do you know that answer to the about of space a 30 min 720p video takes up?
