I have created these 2 part list and would like the opinion if the selection makes sense. Also which one is preffereable over another along with if some things needed to be swapped out. This is my first build so please pardon some dumb questions. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/BsQbwV

Thank you in advance.

What will this build be used for?

If this won't be for gaming and used for some CPU intensive work than the first build is nice. Second build would also be a decent overclocking build if you changed the h170 board to a z170 motherboard so you can overclock.

Thanks.. Yes the computer will not be used for Gaming for sure butmaily for photoshop, may using it a media server(running plex on it) ,running visual studio..So yes some multitasking CPU intensive work. I also want to build a model which would support some new technolgy coming in next 5 years and i dont have to again change the motherboard. Please suggest.
