So to start, you are going to want a Full ATX motherboard, and one on the Z170 chipset so you can overclock the 6700k.

Also you are going to want a SSD to install your OS onto.

I wouldn't recommend using a founders edition card, as you are paying a bit more, and wont get as low temps.

You are going to want a higher quality psu the one I listed is fine.

This did bring the price up about $100, and if that isnt within budget you can skip overclocking and go with a 6700 non "k" and a motherboard that isnt z170, or going down to a 6600k would be fine too.

That NEX Series PSU is low-quality, get a G2 or RMx.
