More about build good
  1. The z170 motherboard will most likely need a bios update. I suggest not taking the risk and just get a z270 motherboards.
  2. You only need a 250GB SSD for OS and software, if you're doing video editing etc get a 500GB SSD, but that's as large SSD storage as you need.
    It only helps loading times in games, not performance, get a 2TB HDD to go with it.
    There are also quite a few other improvements that could be made in the build, the keyboard as well.
    What is your budget?

  5. Ah yeah, sorry, didn't see that in the post! :)

    I think you should wait for the 1080ti, gets announced in a weeks time.

    Looks like an expensive card though, 1200$? Along with the people talking about it, not a very popular card from what people are saying.

  9. Wait also for ryzen which is shipping the second. Should force Intel to reduce prices.
  10. Ryzen is in the hands of reviewers now and it looks extremely promising, they're boasting 52% IPC gains over AM3+ when they initially were aiming for 40%.
    Should come extremely close to Intel and get them on their toes.
