A few weeks or months ago, I've already created a similar thread.
However I decided that I've wanted to change quite a few things, thus also creating a new thread.
I've decided to go with a Skylake Build. Budget is around 2k.
Mostly I'm writing this thread to ensure I don't have any bad parts in it.
...so do I?
What I plan on using my build for:
1080p / 1440p - Gaming (I want to have a smooth and fluid experience on all the newest titles)
Video rendering (Sony Vegas), Cinema 4D, Lightroom 5 / 6 (just for fun...)
What am I looking for in my build:
Future Proof - I think I might upgrade in 3 Years with another GTX 980 Ti - Is that smart?
Also I prefer INTEL and nVidia, but I'm open to suggestions otherwise...
I am not entirely sure on Memory, Harddisk. However also open if you think I should switch other parts.
