Here is the part list for a build I'm planning. I'm wanting to know peoples opinions of it and if there's anything that I should change or just general feedback. A few things to note though:
I'm definitely needing an ITX build as it needs to fit in a small space under my desk (roughly 370x280x350mm is the maximum size for a case).
I'd really prefer to keep the Dark Rock Pro 3 as I love the look of it in small cases but I'd be willing to change if it provided a noticeable performance increase.
Needs to stay at about £1000 GBP (±£50).
I know the PSU is super overkill but I'm planning on getting a GTX 1080 in the future (possibly 1080Ti if pricing isn't too brutal).
I may wait for Kaby Lake to come out and see if they are better value compared to the 6600K.
So ja. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this will be my first build :)
