Go with a card with an after market cooler. You will get better performance out of them.

I agree with Awakening, there are way better ones that'll look better too. An ASUS Strix for example like others have mentioned is a great one.

I agree on it being better looking, but I guess I don't care enough to drop more money for it :P

i7 Is a good Chip

FUMA is an outstanding CPU Cooler

Asus Z170-A Gets the job done

Corsair LPX Memory is Low Profile so it works well with Large CPU Coolers

MX300 is the best Bang for your Buck SSD at the Moment.. One M.2 for the OS and the other SSD for Storage..

Asus GTX 1080 STRIX will do much better than the Founders Edition in Any case that it can breathe well in..

Corsair Spec-Alpha because I like Corsair Cases due to them being easy to build in..

Corsair RMx 750 because it is a Very High Quality Power Supply for a good price..

I know it looks really good but do not but dominator platinum ram. It is the most overpriced pc part that i have ever seen. You can but ram at the same speed for $90

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/6F4dr7 This may not have shiny ram and a ssd that you dont need but it will perform better in many ways. Make sure to not to go with a founders edition card. I reccomend asus strix cards.

why the different cpu cooler? isnt it the same price? does it deliver better cooling?

I guess the motherboard is fine? i just choose a decent random one

for the ram i was really confused so I just went with the slick looking one and + I like corsair. But I think im going to go with your option on the memory.

and for the ssd i think im going to stick with the option i had cause I already have 3tb of space on my hdd.

The case i dont think it matters (both are good)

and for the power supply Im guessing i need 850w eh? Ill take your opinion on this too!

Thanks overall for the free help. I really love this community!

Ahh yes I do make a lot of video/computer work/files transfer since I major in industrial design. That being said the only reason I'm getting the corsair CPU cooler is because of its looks. Would it make a big difference? if so ill take your opinion. And also for the SSD I wanted the Intel 750 Series 400GB PCI-E Solid State Drive due to its incredibly fast speed and the samsung SSD for the side display of my side panel of my case (yes I know pretty ridiculous) But other than these two does everything else look solid? and again thanks for your help.
