This is what I threw together as decent from reading. If there are any things you would change please let me know why. I am up for changes if it makes sense.

I already have the extra HDD, monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Also, I haven't built in a while and this m.2 thing is new to me. What are the advantages and can you use it as a primary drive. Is this thing even recommended? or is the 850 EVO fine. What are the advantages/disadvantages?

I am looking to get this as soon as I can find an i7-6700k. I looked today and every vendor I seen was sold out of them. I can wait. I would like as much advice/changes as I can get up until that time.

Thanks in advance.
