Based on feedback, I've revised my new possible rig.

Aim: quiet gaming, possible video editing

How does it look?

CPU cooler will be Noctua or a CLC depending which is quieter and if I can fit the CLC radiator on the base of the case. Separate forum post for that here

Dont get a Hard drive its too loud! Maybe stick with what you have for like 4-5 weeks and then buy the 7700k kabylake cpu. It will look good but noctal cpu coolers are ugly so that would kill the looks.
