2000$ build, what do you guys think?

No real budget, just need a solid, good looking computer with quality components. This is a gaming and minor video editing PC. Any thoughts or improvements? I'm buying today!!!

The only thing not on the list is an optical drive, keyboard, and mouse. I'll get get these separately.

  2. Honestly, the X99 is overkill. Unless you are having some intensive CPU processing, I would downgrade to a Z170 motherboard. Also, use that money to grab a GTX 1080. spending over $100 for case is a bit too much in my book. Do you really need WiFi? USB Dongles are $10 at most and perform just as great. I would also grab a SIlver or Gold certified PSU if you want a lot of promising and trusted power.
  3. What would be the advantage of keeping the x99?? Also, would a 1080 be sufficient for 4k gaming??

    If you were doing something like brute force and bitcoin mining, something that takes up a lot of CPU power. But for gaming, the Z170 is preferred. Also if you have a single monitor, the GTX 1080 should be fine.

    Much better GPU, less overcosted motherboard, no need for thermal paste, less expensive RAM, less overcosted SSD and a better PSU
