Get a Z170 motherboard if you are going to OC or get the i5-6500 with an H170 or B150 motherboard. If you are going to OC, I recommend the Scythe FUMA instead of the 212 EVO. The MX300 275GB is a better value SSD. For a 1070, a 500W PSU would be enough. I recommend the EVGA 550W G2 or the Corsair RMx 550W. If you are only going to use the optical drive to install the OS, get a thumb drive instead and save a few bucks.

Made a lot of changes to squeeze in a much better monitor, more RAM, bigger SSD, better PSU, and an all around better looking build
