Even 16gig is overkill for a pure gaming build.

That case is huge you know? Putting a single gpu build in it is not really using it... I would say go for one of the nice ~$100 cases that are around. They'll still have plenty of room for expansion. I just threw the fractal design define r5 in there, it's a very well reviewed option.

EVGA g1/nex is not all that great, their g2 is better but the the new seasonic titanium would be my pick if you've got that much money to spend on a build.

Review for 650w due at jonnyguru in a few weeks but they've already done 750w/850w models and they're good, really really good :-D

Huh, the 750w is actually cheaper than the 650w atm, go figure...

Do you have some super bad *** speaker/headphones you wanna use? If not using a ~$130 soundcard for some cheap logitech crap is so not worth it, the built into the mobo sound is fine in that case.

A gtx 1080 is an awesome card but depending on what kinda monitor (rez/refresh) you're using you could very well push F4 to the max with a cheaper card, it's not a really super demanding game iirc.

So you can maybe save an extra $300 or more depending on what gpu you actually need.

I was gonna suggest a cheaper cpu but looking at some fps data online the i7 has an advantage in your monitor is over 60hz, if you have a 1080p/60hz monitor for example you'll get the same performance with a i5 & 1060 as the monitor will be the limiting factor, and even with a i7 & 1080 you wouldn't actually be able to see any improvement (as they're pushing the game far beyond what the monitor can actually display).

So I left the i7, 1080 and soundcard in pending your reply but there's potential to be over $600 cheaper if you change those bits.

Oh yeah, wired internet connection is built into the mobo so neither build needs that add in card.

The asus z170 pro gaming is a step up as per the old techreport build guide - http://techreport.com/review/30460/the-tech-report-system-guide-august-2016-edition/3

Bring back the 1080 in this last build with the i5-6600k, it'd be a great build for gaming. i7-6700k is unnecessary if he is just gaming. Except if you do that, I'd pick up Windows 10. DX12 isn't a huge thing right now, but it will be sometime soon. And its cheaper than Windows 7, well the one that is selected anyways.

Still depends on what monitor, I don't see what a 1080 would gain you with a 1080p/60hz screen apart from a lighter wallet... :D

i7-6700k is unnecessary if he is just gaming.

I7's can be useful for pushing high fps in some games, you'd likely want one for a high refresh monitor to help achieve the kinda fps that an eg.144hz can display. As per a post at digital foundry @eurogamer modern aaa titles are using the i7 extra threads now.

Good point about w7/10 and dx12 tho.

Oh I did not know they were starting to utilize the i7's extra threads now. That's awesome, glad I went ahead and got one of those then haha. And about the 1080, I was just stating that what you had there was a great build for a decent price! I was complimenting your computer building skills ; )

If your only gaming I suggest I cheaper processor and then downgrade to a fan, you will not need that 64gb of ram I suggest at most 32gb for gaming you might want to get a cheaper hard drive to add an ssd other than that this build is a beast and will do great things
