Windows 10: Any way to make it better/cheaper?

    Any way to make it better/cheaper?


    Hi! I'm looking to build a new PC. Here is the link:

    Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core, GeForce GTX 1070 8GB G1 Gaming - System Build - PCPartPicker

    I have been looking around and can't find anything. I have the type of parts I want, (Ex: i7 6700K, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, etc)

    Please note that if you change any parts, I will not accept AMD parts as AMD is not the best. Their architecture stinks. It's inefficient. (No offense to anyone)

    I'm not asking you to build a new PC for me, I'm just asking for advice on this PC.

    I will be doing heavy gaming and video editing and schoolwork in case you were wondering.

    Thank you in advance!

    Video editing makes the i7 a must but if not OCing save 40 bucks with the non K version. If you want to trim the price more it will depend on your gaming preference. You could cut that price and still be able to game, just at lower settings withe a cheaper GPU

    Seems like you already made up your mind, it will be a good system for your needs but it would be good to ad some things. More RAM for video editing and an SSD large enough for system and most important programs. Without it system like that is just not complete.

    Oh. Well thanks for the responses.

    I'd recommend swapping the CPU cooler for a Noctua NH-U14, CPU for the non-K version, and add a SSD (otherwise your system will run slow no matter how beefy of hardware you have). Otherwise this is a nice looking build. Also would recommend (on a personal note) trading the MSI board for ASRock; better longevity for the same price range.

    So, this.

    Thank you for the build and suggestion, but I already have a SSD in my current laptop that I will be putting into the desktop. I also do plan on overclocking, though.

    I've updated the build and made it a little better/cheaper.

    If you're planning to overclock, I strongly recommend trading out that Hyper 212 Evo for something a bit beefier. Don't get me wrong, you've got a good cooler there, but the 6700k can also put off a lot of heat.

    True. Any coolers to recommend? You don't have to if you don't want to.

    I'd recommend the Noctua NH-U14S (single tower, 1x 150mm fan), NH-D14 (dual tower, 2x 140mm fans), or NH-D15 (dual tower, 2x 150mm fans). I have the D15 and it provides excellent cooling for my overclocked i7-5820k. In fact, the only AIO water cooler I could find that provides better cooling than my NH-D15 is the NZXT Kraken X61, and the D15 can be found for just under $90 right now.
