I have bought half of these parts so far. The i7-6700 (non-K), CX300 275 gb, 16 gb of ram from Crucial (They had a sale and I got it for around 65 instead of 80), and the Gigabyte H170-Gaming 3 Motherboard.
1) I thought this build was great until I heard about the i7-6700k. Some say it would be totally worth the cash, while others say you don't need it if you never want to overclock. I am a cautious guy so, I am not willing to overclock especially if this is my first pc build that I want to last for years to come.
2) Should I exchange the motherboard for a Z170? I know that you could get higher speed ram.
3) What good 2tb hard drive would you recommend? I see that Western Digital sells 2tb 5400 RPM hard drives for about 70 dollars but its RPM is only 5400. Would that be good since I will be doing a lot of editing and animation in the near future.
My budget is around 100-1075. I m not willing to go over 1200 since I have to buy some other peripherals.
Remember I will be doing a lot of editing but no overclocking on gpu nor the cpu.
