Very similar to my build it looks like..... maybe I was on the right path.
 
Yeah, I based it off your build. Found some better quality parts for the money. I was going to set you up with an AMD equivalent along with a GTX 1070ti, but you run such a low resolution, intel is your best option.

You like the Tomahawk MB better? Why? Also the ram why the change there too? Just to I understand.... haven't build a PC in years to relearning as I go. lol Also you like the MSi over the EVGA 1060?

I plan on getting a pretty good and fast display, thinking I can jump to a much better V-card next year and upgrade my sons 970 to my then old 1060

I was going between the Fractal case and Phanteks 300... kinda digging on the fractal design... NZXT make a nice case as well.
 


I can understand if you want to stick with the EVGA. That's cool. I've heard great things about the Tomahawk regarding power delivery from youtube channel Gamers Nexus. The G. Skill memory uses Samsung B Die.

You dont really need to buy such expensive OS license, you can buy cheaper online legal.

Get the 2700X CPU, better than the intel one for what you need.
