MINI ITX [http://pcpartpicker.com/list/P3B8jc] ATX [http://pcpartpicker.com/list/vfnPKZ]

This is my first time building a PC and I don't know which one I should go for? I am also considering the core i5 6500 since I really won't be doing much OCing. I won't be playing any games on it atleast for now, but I might want to upgrade it later. I'll be using it for browsing the web, watching videos, and for college. I want to keep the cost as low as possible. I'm not sure where I can cut the cost. I'm having trouble picking motherboards and PSUs. In the room where the PC is going to be put there is no ethernet cable, so it has to be able to connect to the WI-FI. I also want it to have bluetooth for the peripherals. Hoping it will last me plenty of years. All suggestions are welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Mini ITX is cheaper. I put the GTX 1060 in the list to give you and idea, you don't need to buy it now. You also don't need 750W of PSU.
