Thanks, but any reason on the change of mobo? And why the extra storage and memory?

You could stick with your mobo but the one I choose was decentand the extra money allowed for a gtx 1080. The 2 HHD are for data redudency, using raid via 1, so even if 1 HDD fails, the other one will still have all your info backedup.

A i7 6700K would be better and a lot cheaper. 32GB of RAM is a huge waste. AS5 isn't good and isn't needed. The SSD is of poor value. The HDD is of poor value. Too much for that PSU. You could get a better case. You should get Windows 10. You don't need a sound card. You don't need a wired adapter. You are going to be wanting a much better GPU. Do you really need to be able to write Blurays or even a optical drive at all? I would definitely get a different keyboard and mouse. You could get a cheaper and better cooler. Basically I would scrape the entire build.
