So would you recommend me to purchase 2400 sticks instead of the 2133 ones then? If so could you recommend me some?

Mixing it won't damage the 3000Mhz kit correct? For example if one day I decide to take out the 2133 will the 3000 return to 3000 or stay at 2133? Thanks in advance for the info!

As for what I do, sometimes I use 98% of my RAM and get scared lol, but its only for a little bit.

A $25 cooler on a 6k budget? I agree with xXjmillXx, this would be a waste of money.

It does come with a stock cooler, I guess he was thinking it performs better, which it does, but with a budget like this ( with a monitor + keyboard ) that extra $20 could be allocated somewhere else. I recommend the case or maybe the ram.

The changes?

Supstituted the Kabylake i7 for the Kabylake i5. ( Which btw the i7 doesnt perform THAT much better than the i5 as shown here )

Had to get rid of that cooler to fit in a 1070 which will do better then the 1060. If you are really really set on that cooler, downgrade to the 1060 and get the cooler instead.

Those were the only changes, questions welcome :)

P.S. if you really wanted you could get the 1060 and the 212 EVO cooler and get some better ram you could do that too

Some people are telling you don't need to spend near as much money as you think, but which to an extent is true, however from reading your very long post ( which is cool btw ) you're probably getting even more confused. Heres you a build for your max budget:

CPU CHOICE: Originally picked out the i5-7500 but had a little extra so I went ahead and picked up the newest i7. Just so you know, the " K " at the end means the processor is unlocked, hence you can overclock. Since you don't want to overclock, don't spend the extra money on an unlocked processor.

MOTHERBOARD: I picked the motherboard because it supports the newest processor without a BIOS update. Reviews pretty much speak for this board. ( Nothing too beautiful )

RAM: 16GB of DDR4? PLENTY.

STORAGE: 120GB SSD for your boot drive and some games if you have them and a 1TB HDD for everything else.

GPU: This card is very OP for your duties. However, like I said, if you wanted to spend the max of your budget, its worth it. Lets just say you won't have problems playing minecraft with this thing.

CASE: Nice looking case, looks good with the ram, roomy for a first build, good reviews.

PSU: I personally have the PSU. It works well, beautiful packaging. Loud on start up though, but it quiets down.

Alright, now, this will be all you need for you dutites, and will run them well.

CPU: Performs only 2-5% less then the i3 for half the price. Perfect for your tasks.

MOTHERBOARD: Same as last time, supports the new Kaby lake processors and has good reviews.

RAM: 8GB of DDR4, still plenty :P

STORAGE: Same configuration as last time

GPU: 1050TI Performs well for your tasks. To be honest, I wasn't sure which GPU to go with. This one is still probably overkill.

CASE: Same as last time

PSU: Same as last time

This last build is if you really just wanted the newest best GPU. Its simply a beast lol. ( Had to drop to the i5 )
