  1. Best answer
    Everything looks good, but a few concerns. Do you plan on overclocking? If so, you will need a Z170 motherboard. If not, move down to a 6600 (non k) or 6500. If you can, you can even pick up a i7-6700 for better multitasking. Also if you are not going to overclock, you will can remove that CPU cooler and use the stock cooler with the non-K CPUs. Also, They make PCI x1 WiFi adapters. I hear TP-Link is a good brand. Consider getting either an SSD for faster boot times in Windows or extra 8GB of RAM (an 8GBx2 RAM set will do).

    Again, not bad, just trying to get the best bang for your buck.
  2. Solid build , for the same money (nearly) this is what I would do personally .
    You're getting a 275gb ssd & 16gb ram here.
    With this board below the 6500 non k is overclockable to 4ghz easily.

  3. If you're not overclocking and drop to a non K chip I'd use the money you save on that and the CPU cooler and put an extra $50 towards a GTX 1070. I'm currently running an i5 6600K/GTX 1070 setup and I'm getting great fps on ultra setting in everything I play.
