    My budget is around 1500 with a +/- of about 200 so about 1300-1700. The reason all of the parts are on newegg is I am fairly new to this and a friend told me that newegg is a good place to get parts.

    oh wow this is a really cool site thx! I already got a monitor covered.
  7. reason for changing :

    cpu: faster base clock speed of 3.6ghz with a turbo 4.2ghz

    motherboard: the Z series motherboards are primarily for Overclocking and to be used with K version CPUS such as the i7 6700k and the i7 7700k. the i7 6700 and i7 7700 non K version don't have the ability to be overclocked so the b250 series motherboards are the best fit and will work just as well but cost less because of the lack of overclocking :)

    RAM: b250 motherboards are only able to use 2133mhz / 2400mhz ram and with intel cpus there is no real world advantage to using faster ram unlike AMD ryzen cpus which thrive on faster ram kits.

    psu: 650w is plentiful for your system requirements and the psu is of the same high standard as the one you originally picked but cheaper.

    o/s: i have selected the full retail version of version of windows 10 which is also simple to install via usb because OEM versions can have their issues product key wise and microsoft doesn't not offer support for OEM licensed windows ( you get the updates but not after sales support)

    what monitor have you got ? it's a good idea to go with 144Hz 1080p or even 1440p because you can take your monitor to your next system in 4-5 years time . gaming at 1080p 60hz with a mid to high end gpu you may suffer from screen tearing ! you can look into this issue if you wish or just ask if you're unsure )
