I have 4 builds that I am considering. I would like to have your opinions on which one is the best and why. If you want to make some tweaks or make a new list, go ahead! Thanks in advance.

What do you plan to do with this computer and what is your budget?

I plan to mainly game and stream, along some normal home use and a bit of work. My budget cannot exceed £1700. However, if you have a build of higher budget, but the price will decrease, I'm also fine with that.

I personally like the green build.

I made a couple changes like another ssd its cheaper and also good. A i7 6700k. Even if you don't intent to overlock its still a bit faster then the i7 6700. + a great cooler to keep the cpu cool.

And RAM thats a bit cheaper.

Also if your budget is £1700 you could always switch the gtx 1070 for a gtx 1080 But thats up to you.

Thank you very much for this build. Wouldn't my other RAM be better due to the fact that it has a higher speed of 3200mhz compared to this one?

The difference is minor. You wouldn't notice it.

Thanks very much, another question, is there a massive difference between the 1070 and the 1080?

The gtx 1080 is still alot stronger then the gtx 1070. But i would only buy it for 1440p 100hz and above. For everything under the gtx 1070 is perfect.

Will the 1070 be able to do 1440p at a solid 60hz?

I don't really have any intention to over clock my cpu, however I am planning to slightly over lock my gpu.

Not really, I might plan to upgrade from 16gb to 32gb but that will only be when 16gb becomes similar to the position of 8gb right now. 4 ram slots are not a must but would be a nice addition.
