If you are looking for something cheaper, check out my $1000 build guide! :D http://pcpartpicker.com/guide/2PKH99/ghillie-z1-ultimate-1000-build
This PC features the new Skylake architecture with DDR4 memory and the best bang-for-your-buck GPU on the market. This build is meant to do some serious overclocking and max out 60fps 1080p as well as getting 60fps on 1440p as long as a couple settings are turned down.
The new i5-6600k was a choice already made. It is based on the new 6th gen Skylake architecture, so it is faster than older Haswell processors, including the amazing i5-4690k, and can take advantage of new DDR4 RAM. It is also unlocked so you can overclock this thing all you like.
CPU Cooler [Corsair H60]
While being a super stylish cooler that will match this build well, it also performs very well and can keep this i5 cool even past 4.5 GHz, and doesn't break the bank either.
Motherboard [MSI Z170A Gaming M5]
This motherboard is on a Z170 chipset, which means it can be used to overclock unlocked Skylake processors like the i5-6600k I chose in this build. It makes overclocking a breeze, and matches this build well. It has a very good I/O, and supports SLI and/or Crossfire if you plan to upgrade.
RAM [Kingston HyperX Fury Black DDR4-2133]
Any RAM is good, as long as it looks well and doesn't spontaneously combust. So when I saw that sleek-looking Fury Black 8 GB Kit was under $60, I snatched it up. I prefer this ram to more flashy and honestly kind of tacky Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill RAM in my builds, and in ANY computer, black looks great.
SSD [Crucial BX100 250GB]
At this point in time, pretty much every SATA SSD runs at the same speed, and this 250 GB SSD is both cheap and fast. 250GB will be more than enough to store your operating system, and your most frequently used applications like your web browser and a few games.
HDD [WD Caviar Blue 1TB]
Nobody can go wrong with this hard drive. For just over $50, this is everybody's favorite 1TB hard drive. It is known to last quite a while.
GPU [MSI R9 390]
The GPU is undoubtedly the most important part of any gaming build. At this price point, a high end $300+ video card is a must, and the R9 390 is a great choice. It comes in around the same price point as the GTX 970, and offers more performance. This MSI model has great coolers and will leave you a lot of overclocking head room to get the most for your money. The R9 390 is simply the best bang-for-your-buck card out on the market, and you won't be disappointed with a purchase of this card.
Case [NZXT S340]
This case is known to be one of the best, if not the best Mid Tower ATX case. It doesn't have a huge footprint, but offers great airflow and cable management and is super easy to work with. It looks great, and in this Black/Red model, it will match this build very well.
PSU [EVGA G2 750W]
This power supply is rated 80+ Gold, and is fully modular, for super easy cable management and leaves your build looking clean. At 750W, it leaves us a lot of room for overclocking and future expansion. This power supply is known to have a good build quality and will last a while.
So that's the end of this guide. Leave your feedback in the comments, I would really enjoy it. :D
