(Please see my previous thread for any input you might have on a budget machine I am working on.) Parts first, reason I'm posing it later: CPU: i7-6700K @ 4.0GHz CPU Cooler: CoolMaster 212 Evo GPU: EVGA GTX 970 SC w/ ACX 2.0 PSU: EVGA 850W B2 Supernova MOBO: ASUS Z170-Premium RAM: 16gb Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 @ 3000MHz SSD: 500gb Samsung 850 EVO CASE: Corsair 780T (full tower) Purpose: Running multiple trading platforms simultaneously (TradeStation, MT4 and NinjaTrader), light image work, video editing for YouTube, in-home game streaming (PC-to-Smartphone), some PC gaming, remote business meetings with desktop sharing/file transfers...sometimes all at once (minus the games, of course). If the i7 didn't give it away, this is not a value build. Rather, I slapped together a bunch of components I figured would meet my immediate requirements over the next year while providing upgrade room for the next 5 or 6 years...without going over budget. The only thing I may upgrade near term with this is the GPU. If the GTX 1070 shows up on EVGA's step-up list in the next couple of months, I might spring for that, if the price is right. My primary question about this build is whether to keep an eye out for any deals on faster RAM. At present, I estimate I should be okay (the trading platforms like to eat RAM in spite of what their specs say), but may consider some of the faster stuff if significant price drops and a tangible benefit over what you see above. Additionally, do you know any of these components to be failure risks and warrant the extended warranty? Any thoughts are welcome.
