  1. well, for gaming, it is a little bit, it is a good combination though, 3tb WD black is pricey, ill personally rather invest in two smaller drives in a cloned raid configuration for if one fails your data (games) are still saved on the other. Overall, if you have the money, I dont see why not? ;)

    That's not really overkill for anything. If anything you could go bigger (not size wise but with storage performance). Personally I don't bother with the WD blacks as they're overrated. They're not even the fastest HDDs out there. I use Toshibas across the board as they're much cheaper and just as reliable in the end. You can look in to RAID options on your mobo (assuming you're using a RAID capable mobo).

    If you're building brand new I'd stick with Z170 though, which opens up even more capabilities and expandability.
