£189.89 Inc VAT, so after dropping to Win 10 home and dropping the flash drive(I suppose I can just use one laying around) it almost evens out.

You could save some money by swapping GPUs also. The Classified is a great card but you're paying a HIGH premium for it.

This one overclocks like a champ and would perform within 10-15% at stock settings.

The Asus STRIX-GTX980 comes up same price as the EVGA at Scan.co.uk. Oddly enough the EVGA SuperCooled is actually more expensive.
Also this is where some of my brand loyalty lies.

Since you are mainly gaming and only doing some light editing, I would say get the 6600k. But if you insist on getting an i7, a 5820k is practically the same price but with 6c/12t goodness. 5820k is just a much better value than the 6700k.

Regarding going AMD on the GPU, I really would much rather stick with nvidia.

Also the case I picked is for a few reasons.

There is allot of room there at the top above the MB to hopefully get the h100 in push/pull without getting to close to the ram.
Also its a silent case, this is going to be on my desk right next to me.

As for going for a 5820k, the cpu is a little cheaper than a 6700k and the ram is about the difference more expensive, but the motherboards are far more expensive. So all in all it works out more.

RAM is the same cost. X99 can run in dual, triple or quad channel effectively so you don't need to satisfy 4 slots making the RAM cost redundant. There is no low end X99 board so you can find them under $200 with little effort. That's middle-High end for Z170. In the end it's nearly a wash but now you have 4 more threads at your disposal.
