So I want to build a good gaming pc and I need help with most things. I am getting the nzxt h440 razer case and I want the new i7 6700k cpu. I am pretty new to this kind of thing so I need help. My budget is $3000. Can someone give me a rundown of what parts I should get like which motherboard, cooling system, hdd, ssd, ram, gpu and everything that is needed. And as the case is by razer I want the color theme to be green. Thanks to everyone in advance.
These are the things I have on my mind
Case- Nzxt h440 razer
Cpu- i7 6700k
Video card - evga 980ti hybrid
I need help with everything else.
If someone has a better idea feel free to share. Everything can be changed expect for the case. What will be the best build in this case. I7 6700k doesn't really matter

Maximus Hero VIII or Gigabyte G1 Gaming 7 for mobo. I'm sure someone is going to recommend you to buy Devil's Canyon instead. But I say good luck getting a good mobo for older boards.

With that budget and the current price difference between x99 and Z170, I would opt for the 5820K instead of the 6700K.

3000$ is a huge budget, don't jump the gun, wait for a great suggestion from someone

I'll throw a build at you once I get a bit more information.
Are you in the states?
Does that budget includes for peripherals?
Does that budget include monitors?
Software? (Windows?)

Then we can put that 3000$ of yours to better used with them answered.

This is just my suggestion. Motherboard for X99 I'm not really up to date, so I just put one around the price point I think you should aim for.

PCPartPicker part list

CPU: Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor ($374.99 @ SuperBiiz)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard ($243.98 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill TridentZ Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($139.99 @ Newegg)

Leaves you with enough to get your keyboard mouse that you like and others like Duality already mentioned.

Edit 0 changed case to match what was asked.

The 6700K isn't a wise choice if you compare it with the 5820K, you get 2 more cores and 4 more threads. It's also highly overclockable like the 6700K. Single core performance might be a few % less, but overall, the 5820K will last you much longer and you can eventually upgrade to Broadwell-E or the 5960X

He said he didn't need windows and specifically asked for the H440 Razer tower

Also, the 6700K is more expensive than the 5820K for 2 core and 4 threads less, how is that justifiable?

Devils Advocate - If you go with Skylake will be able to upgrade the the Skylake-E later down the road.

Depends what you want to use it for. A lot of people will tell you the 5820k gets you more performance for the money - It does. Question is if you are even going to take advantage of that performance, so what do you want to use the computer for?

Oops missed that part!

He can swap the case then. And I am just providing a z170 build option. Whether it is right for him or not depends on his next post with what he really is going to be using it for. Performance / $ x99 beats it.

Here's a start.

You'll need an OS, keyboard and mouse.

Of course if you keep your eyes open in the for sale threads you can finds some solid deals from good members.

A crappy Corsair AIO cooler does not belong anywhere near a $3000 system.
And he said he already has a monitor.
