Wanting something that will last for some years. My AMD phenom II X4 965 3.41ghz is starting to show it's age for some games, have had it for 4 years now. Also wanting something quiet hence the fractal case. Wasn't sure about the i5 6600k or to go with the i7 6700k. Any input would be nice. Thanks.

Solid build, i5-6600k is a great gaming CPU. EVGA GTX 1080's have an overheating problem on the VRM's, google it to read up on it. To find one that is fixed I think you need to go to EVGA direct. In any case, the Gigabyte one below is a solid card with a factory overclock that has good cooling and will boost using GPU Boost 3.0 in any case thanks to Nvidia.

I also added a 1TB hard drive for bulk storage but you may not want that.

You may wish to consider a beefier cooler like the M9i.

The M9i is actually less beefy than the H7

You're right, I mixed them up!!! H7 will be fine with a 6600k

Thank you dudes. I've never black friday shopped before. Do you think some of these prices will drop more? I know for the next 12 hours newegg has the i5 on sale. Just a little clueless if I should wait till the 24th or 25th for possible better deals. Again thank you for the input.

Oh and I just switched out the 1TB drive for a 3TB
