Now as you see I have taken out some of the storage but unless you need that much I would go with this, and have toned down the PSU to a very good unit, and undated the GPU to this generation. this is not what I am recommending just showing you that you could buy new and get better for the same price.

Wow, that amazing. Thank you very much. Yes storage is overkill. Back to the drawing board! Could you recommend something along these lines but drop the wifi, optical drive, and possibly better mobo I've also fallen in love with this case jonsbo umx4?

Very similar but brand new and costs about the same. Not that I would recommend the parts though.

Sorry bad choice of words. Thanks very much. Quick question the gigabyte z170 gaming 7 has hdmi 2.2 out. If I used this board could I connect tv into this and a monitor into the gpu hdmi and switch between the two as and when required?
