Hello, I would like you to put together a parts list using this criteria:

Must have: i7-6700K, all RAM must be 16gb sticks, IT MUST HAVE AN OPTICAL DRIVE (no one seems to have them theese days), all parts must be available at PC Case Gear and the budget is $2000 Australian Dollars

Colour theam (chose one): White and black, white, black, black and green

No peripherals but a sound card would be nice.

There is about $20 allowance over the budget price.

It will be used for rendering, 1080p gaming and LAN parties

ATX is needed

Good luck!

Its ok. The sound card just would have been nice

Why? Also, an i7 really isn't all that useful, especially at this budget.

Futureproofing. I don't plan on upgrading for quite a while

No such thing and an i7 won't help.

Also it is better. And i like throwing my money at things i want, even if they are useless. The point is I chose the 6700k and my mind is set on it (unless you can make me switch to an AMD chip)

How come? Unless you're doing studio type things with interfacing, mobo sound quality is very good.

Its easyier to capture sound from a sound card then straight from the mobo. Well at least with my capture card

You're right, but there are several programs that make it easily to capture audio from your computer, including Audacity.

I'm aware, and if you really need that, then that's fine. I respect that.

I Get what your saying about it being a bit useless but with the original board i had in mind there had been complaints about the audio so i thought I'd go over the top even if it did work on the motherboard

That's when you decide to look elsewhere for other boards with better audio quality.

8gb should be fine but the preference was 16gb sticks. This was mainly for upgradableness
