Hi Im building my first custom PC sometime this month and would definitely like help finding the best components for a gaming PC. Im also gonna be streaming games and making videos for YouTube maybe. Definitely prefer Intel and plan on getting a Gtx 1080 or 1070 aftermarket card. Thanks in advance.

Still not a good build. Over budget, without mail in rebates. Still using a poor quality PSU. Might want to give this a read. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html The 980ti's are not worth getting, with the GTX 1070 being as fast/faster, for less. This would have made more sense, for a non overclock/sli build.

The CX 750 is a horrible PSU, for such a system, and the 212 is not adequate for a 6 core CPU. 6800k is still to high priced, not to mention the bios update needed, to run it, with that board. X99 is also a quad channel platform.
