Budget is $4k, but I'd rather not spend the whole budget.
Parts I'm considering:
GPU: MSI GTX 1060 3gb $239.99
PSU: 750W modular evga $94.99
Memory: 32gb Tridentz (2 x 16gb) $244.99
CPU: 7600k $239.99
Raid: areca ark 1883i-sa $619.99
Cooling: EKWB A240G $239.99
Boot Drive: Samsung 960 Evo $234
Raid drives: 4x Samsung 850 Evo $879.80
Mobo: Gigabyte ga-z170x-gaming 7 $137.98
Os: win10 + sierra $104.99
I know the raid seems overkill, but it is to help with fill rates and is gonna be a requirement for the build.., although it doesn't need to be an array of ssds... Also open to controller suggestions, I don't think I want to do softraid for this.
The raid array will not be for storage, that is all done elsewhere, and I'll probably throw a 2tb drive into this machine for local storage as well.
Only reason I choose those ssds is because I could buy 4 at once.
My main questions. Should I stick with the i5, or does video editing benefit from more threads? What about the 1060, it shouldn't need more power right?
Anyway, feel free to post your thoughts, suggestions, or parts lists.
Forgot to mention, already have the case.
