You dont need a 750 watt PSU for that build unless you are going to add a second GTX 980 later.
And the CPU cooler you picked is not a very good option, its way overprice and it has a huge flaw and that flaw is that is has almost zero room for RAM.

Pick a Noctua NH-U12S or NH-U14S instead or even the NH-D15 all of those are better cheaper and dont have problems with room for RAM.

Max GPU, 16GB of RAM is overkill for gaming, 6600k with the D14 will clock high and stay cool.

This is a much cheaper build, that will have very similar performance.

You might loose a couple frames in games, but this should be a snappier computer for a few hundred bucks less.

I was going to post a build but honestly ^^^^THIS is so similar that I won't bother. If you build the above you will be happy.

The only thing I disagree with is the purchase of an NVME drive which makes total cost go up a bit. Can't argue with how fast those drives are though...

Are you playing at 1080P? If so going above the 970 is a bit silly. For 1440P definitely swap in a 980 or 980Ti. If you wanted to game at 4K you will need 2 980s or better.

thank you guys, really appreciated

Its for 1080P. I will need a monitor too which is really hard to pick... so many monitors.
Is 8GB RAM really enough? If if remember correctly even years ago 16GB was standard, i must be missing something. redface.gif

8GB is all you need for gaming. Why get more than you need? Spend the money where it will make a difference NOW and if you need another 8GB in a couple of years just buy a second identical 2X4 kit.

2 things.

Yeah the NVME ssd is expensive, but its 4 times as fast for only 100 bucks extra and I already shaved off a few hundred from his intended budget.

Plus you could also make the argument that NVME is already starting to become a standard and it wont be long before the only thing SSDs are good for is mass storage. This way at least he/she is ahead of the curve.

The other thing is a GTX 970 works quite well for 1440p. The few games that are too demanding for the 970 are games in which the 980 struggles as well.

IMO the 980 is a waste of money. Either get a GTX 970, a GTX 980ti, or an AMD card that falls somewhere in between.
