After spending some time to get familiar with PC environment (I am a Mac user for over 20 years) I finally decided to go with a Skylake 6700K. I could have afford better, but my eyes as for power was the latest iMac 5K. I wanted something similar. I do motion graphics and illustration. And some 3D with Modo from the Foundry. I have put an hold on the video card, and I am currently using the video card capabilities of the Intel 6700K. I have not overclocked the CPU. I think it's fast enough, and gaming is not my goal, maybe just a little later. My main concern was the noise. I remember years ago a PC built running under Windows XP that was so loud! But to my big surprise, this one is super quiet. I guess when I'll install a video card, something like the GTX 970, I will need to revisit this maybe. So, here is a simple photo of my build: a clean case with no windows. I really don't like the idea to have bright LED lights in my face! I need a quiet and sober machine next to me that won't distract me. The build was easy, it took me a few hours. I wanted to make sure I wasn't making any mistake. To my surprise it was easier. The hardest part was to figure out the sata and electric cables to connect to the SSD and DVD burner. So if you're wondering how hard it is to build a machine, it may take a few hours to get there, but the end goal is rewarding! I am glad I did the move. As for the conversion from Mac OS Yosemite to Windows 10, sure I miss the 'space bar' to preview images. But I discovered new functions that didn't exist on Mac. And all the Adobe programs that I opened (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects) are working well. Not enough experience with Modo 902 yet.
