Been out of the loop for a while, am looking for recs on a few parts. Monitor/peripherals not needed

I could either buy an i7 6700k and ~$150 mobo through microcenter, or buy online w/ one of those budget mobo's i see on sale in online-deals.
Win 8 - free and upgrade to 10
SSD - buy a 256 gig one for under 100
HDD- looking for recommendations, been out of the loop here
GPU - GTX 970 from the next deal i see
RAM - DDR4 3000+, under $100
PSU - already bought Seasonic Platinum 750 - 110
Cooler - Hyper 212? Anything else I should look at? Under $50
Sound card - is onboard ok?
case - friend will pick one between 50-100 dollars

thanks and repped - is there a reason you picked WD over HGST and Seagate?

My own personal bias, primarily. That particular drive is in dozens of machines I've built and sold and I've had very few issues with them.

Why did you buy a Seasonic Platinum coil whine machine when there is better options that cost less?
And you dont need 750 watt for that build its overkill even if you add a second GTX 970.

He did mention an interest in upgrading to pascal or adding another card in the future. I offered him a PSU i kept from a previous build, unused, and he said he'd take it if i built the computer for him. I was planning on giving it to my brother anyways so at least I get money out of this exchange.

Some thoughts: Consider the 950 Pro SSD, looks like you'll be getting a z170 board that supports it. All the speed imaginable for future endeavors. It's obviously alot more than $100 but meh! (& Closer to $100 is the Samsung 850 Pro, non- M2 though)

Do you absolutely need an additional junk HDD?

On board audio should suffice.

After building a PC for someone with the Phanteks Pro M I made sure to go with the same case for my build. It's a pleasure to work with.
