I'd like to build a PC for games mainly, like Overwatch on Ultra, and other demanding titles. I would also use this pic for art occasionally. I just need something that is powerful, reliable and will last a long time. I already have a monitor, and everything you need besides the PC. I don't have a preference for anything since the pic will be under my desk. But please no super bright led things in the case. Please include an operating system in the part list. Oh and one last thing, I don't have the ability to connect to my wifi with a chord, so a good wireless piece would be nice to have.

Unlocked i5 (you'd only need an i7 for editing/streaming.) and a GTX 1080. Built-in wireless on the motherboard (the LED can be turned off through ASRock software.) Good value cooler, kept my temps under a 6600K icy cold. 8GB RAM all you need, good value SSD for your boot/OS. Fantastic case (the LED can also be turned off, I think by holding the button for them on the case.), top-of-the-line PSU.

Looks good. If OP is only planning for 1080p or 1440p, I'd suggest the 1070 in order to save some cash or to upgrade the ram, cooler, or SSD.

And for the case, yes, holding the led button will cycle it between the different LED settings, with one of them just being all off. It is a really nice case and I definitely support the suggestion of it
