This is my first time building a pc but I have some experience helping others put them together. The goal is a pc that runs games well at 1440p and cost around 2000 dollars. I have a parts list put together but had a couple main questions.
Intel Core i7-6700K
MSI Z170A GAMING M5 ATX Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB DDR4-2400 Memory
MSI GeForce GTX 1070 8GB
EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W
My main question is if there is any point in getting the 6700k if I plan on using the pc mostly for gaming and some video work. I probably won't be upgrading the cpu for a while so would the 6700k be more future proof? The alternative option is a 6600k which would save me about 100 dollars.
The only other thing would be any opinions on the parts I've chosen.
Thanks is advance.
