I created this build for casual browsing, gaming, and video editing/encoding. What would you change?
Also, PC part picker thread.

Nano r9 is better.
Also this is not a casual build.. This is a "LOOK HOW MUCH I CAN SPEND! WOO! FUCK YEAHHH" build.
You're right, this isn't supposed to be a casual build. For the life of me, I don't know why I listed "casual browsing."
I might look for an alternative method to acquire Windows.
The GPU is mostly for gaming, but I figure it should be able to handle most of the video editing projects I throw at it.
Not a bad idea, but I can always buy another SSD later if I feel like I need it.
>Single GTX 980 Ti
Addendum: >Not a black series drive
Please goobert. Help us out here
RAM and CPU cooler are not compatible, get ram without huge heatsinks that sticks up.
Get another SSD for RAID0 so your projects load in the blink of an eye.
Case is edgy-teen-transformer-tier gayness. I'd get something more sleek and clean. But whatever floats your boat.
I hope the monitor is IPS.
how is he supposed to be able to do anything at 4k when the monitor is only half that resolution?
Get a 4TB WD green and shut the intellispin off using the utility.
Skylake is a flop. Dump it.
Get a haswell-e 5820 cpu. They have fantastic overclocks and better stock performance than skylake.
Use wired ethernet, cheap, absolutely reliable
Max you should spend on a mouse is $20, logitech G300 served me well
Liquid cooling, temps drop faster after load lets up, throws heat directly out of case instead of recirculating portions of it
Seasonic has god tier PSUs for cheap, my 500W is still alive after six years, produces no discernible heat output.
Got no clue on the mech keyboards but that's a fuckload of cash for a keyboard...
Monitor is hella expensive, better produce nice color.
I prefer clarity of motion and high frame rates, hacky lightboost on a refurbished Acer GN246HL
i'm building a similar build, in a simlar price range soon.
i would recommend going an M.2 ssd, 2.5gbps is nuts. Also drop the wifi card, spend the extra on a better motherboard that has dual ethernet and a wifi card included.
Also, have done different builds with the 2011-3 Haswell e chipset, still undecided though. Probably going towards the skylake, purely because of higher ddr4 clocks, less power, etc.
No gfx card as i already have a 980.
This is the best shit mouse I have ever had the pleasure of using.
Ambidextrous for left handed use.
My daughter's wife needs a new PC for games, does this look alright?
Casual gaming usually doesn't include a dedicated graphics card, a stupidly overpriced gaming motherboard, or aa $200 case PSU combo. Also, those won't help in your video work. Wireless tech changes awfully fast, it's stupid to spend that much on an internal wireless card. Get a decent 802.11n usb adaoter for $20. Why spend that much on a mouse? Especially that mouse. You monitor, ssd and optical drive choices are probably fine.
