Hello
I want to build a new Set-up and Picked out the Components I would like. My question is now if it is possible to optimize my selection. I really would like to keep the performance on the same level as it is now. Don't worry about the lack of an operating system or a keyboard, I got that already.

1. With a locked CPU (6500), a Z170 is not necessary
2. Neither is the 212 Evo - the stock cooler is fine
3. A budget SSD would likely not be too noticeable vs an 850 evo in "real world" performance (something like an A-DATA SP550)
4. A DVD drive is rarely necessary in 2016
5. a WD black is overkill for mass-storage, a 3TB drive (WD Blue) is available for less
6. A cheaper case won't impact performance

Haven't touched your peripherals or monitor, as those are 100% personal preference; but this will give you the same performance for ~$200 or so less

Heres my version, dropped the Z170 motherboard and the 212 evo, you don't need either. As well the 650 GQ is not EVGA's best, replaced with a 550 G2, more than enough power, cheaper, and WAY better quality. Saves you about 100 bucks, still keeps you with high end stuff.

Also you did not include Windows 10 in here, if you do it will bring you back to your original price, but you do need it.
