CPU: I previously had a i5 6500 and I thought, why not just get an i7? I do video and photo editing in addition to some gaming.
GPU: I had this GPU before, but sold it along with my old PC and got the same one again. It works, has a good cooler, RGB lights, and an all around well built card.
RAM: Okay, this is where most people will start saying why do I need 32GB of RAM. Well, I say, why not? I will be using it a lot to edit RAW DNG footage and 4K footage so why not?
Motherboard: Okay, so I could've gone with cheaper options but this was mini-iTX and had wifi and bluetooth built in. There are other cards that are cheaper but then I would've had to used a USB WIfi/Bluetooth dongle because of a lack of PCIe slots. It also has onboard RGB LEDs which I love. :)
PSU: Nothing to say here, fans don't spin when not under high load. Fully Modular, reliable, and gold efficiency.
Case: I love the red accents on this case as well as the value it has. The window is also very nice (although because it's acrylic, it scratches easily).
Monitor: Well, it's color accurate and vivid. I may upgrade to a 4K monitor in the future however, most of the work I do now are in 2.7K or 1080p (but they are RAW DNG/ProRes files)
Overclocking my i7 7700K went very well. I managed to get 4.8GHz on air even if the temps are slightly high (77 centigrade or so in Aida64). This is at 1.24V which is not too bad.
In regards of the 1060, I have not pushed this card to its limits, only have it at 2024MHz on the core and around 8500MHz on the memory.
