Default New Build

Alright guys, since I couldn't get my experimental build to work, I said F*ck it, and I'm going to build something entirely new. This is what I'm going with:

Intel i5 6600K
ASRock B150 PRO4s Motherboard
32 GB G.Skill RIPJAWS (2 x 16GB) DDR4 2133 RAM
2 TB Seagate SSHD
Corsair RM850x

I already have one GTX 970, so I'm just going to buy another and SLI it. All together since I already have a power supply, the SSHD, and the one 970, I should be spending no more than $400, which is damn good for a PC of this range. Tell me what ya'll think!

Why buy a B150 board for an unlocked CPU.
I would go for Z170. Not gonna cost much more.

Save on the RAM. If you want more than 8 gig, go for 16.
Highly doubt that you need 32. You are wasting money.

Video editing is why I need that much RAM. And I'm getting the 6600k because it's currently cheaper than the 6500.
