I made this part list with the intention of heavy streaming, some editing and heavy gaming at 1080-1440p. And b4 someone says it... i know 32gb of ram is overkill, that was the point. I really just wanted to know the i7 6700 would bottleneck or be bottlenecked by the GTX 1060.

32GB of RAM is pointless to have and makes zero sense to get on your budget when that money could go else where. That HDD is overpriced.

Bottlenecking all depends on the game and graphical settings. Any CPU can bottleneck any GPU under the right circumstances. Bottlenecknig isn't a black and white thing and there isn't a blanket yes or no answer to your question.

Better motherboard, faster RAM, better PSU, more storage, and it is about the same price.
