Hey guys, So as I'm finally being able to get my P's in less than a months time I'm going to finally get a job which I've already lined up.
The last day I've spent a fair bit of time planning out my new PC which is going to cost me around $2000. I'm getting this PC for multiple reasons but the main one being I want to get a VR headset, specifically the HTC Vive and my current machine wont be able to run it like at all lol. The only things I'm really keeping from my current PC are the HDD's, Fans and other little things.
So here's the PC I hope to be owning in little over a month's time.
Motherboard - Possibly MSI Z170A-Gaming Pro Carbon - $264
CPU - Intel Core i7 6700K - $461
GPU - MSI GTX 1070 Armor -$685
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB - $99
Power Supply - Corsair RM650i - $175
SSD – Samsung 250GB 750 EVO $103
Case - Fractal Define R5 Titanium or Black - $165
CPU Cooler - Deepcool Gammaxx 400 - $32
Total so far... - $1985 from (https://allneeds.com.au/)
Cheers to the people who gave me some advice about parts on the D2K FB page!!
What does everyone think?

Hey Wallf,

I would change the drive to a Samsung 250GB 850 EVO M.2 SSD
You could save the money if you don't take the 6700K and only the 6700 - only if you going to overclock do you need a 6700K

Deon has a good point but if you go m2 get a Intel 600p series its a faster read speed

for $40 more get the samsung pro M2 - double the performance and more than you will get out of overclocking the 6700

on the stats any way the 600p has more bang for buck

850 evo m2 $139 up to 540MB/s sequential read and 500MB/s sequential write

600p m2 $129 sequential reads up to 1570MB/s, sequential writes up to 540MB/s

950 pro m2 $269 sequential read speed of up to 2,200MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 900MB/s

Hey so out of curiosity the 600p m2 they don't use a sata cable right? They're a PCIE slot?

on the motherboard there is a slot for it, not a pcie - it lays flat

Yeah if you aren't going to overclock then don't even bother getting the K.

m2 is quick, but do you need it? No, not at all. I run normal ssd's for windows and games and i never need anything faster. Windows 10 boots in less than 10 seconds and all games launch amazingly fast.

I would rather a bigger ssd. I have a 500gb dedicated for gaming only, filled it up first day now i continually find myself having to uninstall games :(

Everything else looks awesome!

You'll love the 1070 :)
