So I've built this pc in July 2016, never had any problems or issues with it.
Two days ago, upon trying to start my PC, I've noticed that nothing was happening.
After 20-30 seconds PC booted up with no BIOS. Fans were spinning, mobo lights were on but no image.
I tried updating my BIOS, removing the CMOS battery/clearing CMOS, unplugging PC from the wall outlet as well as switching the PSU off and holding
the power button for 10 seconds but the problem still is recurring.
I found that turning the power supply switch off and on and quickly turning the PC on works but I don't know what could be the problem. Right now I'm able to use my PC only if I use this method else it won't pass BIOS/POST.

Would a M.2 be a better option instead of going for regular SSD?
1. Budget & Location
I do a lot of gaming, a lot of Photoshop, AutoCAD and other 3D programs for my architecture program in school. I do a lot of multi-tasking.
Two monitors at 1080p, will eventually upgrade whenever the time comes probably.
I do not need windows, mouse, keyboard or any other peripherals.
5. Why are you upgrading?
Because I don't have a desktop.
Here's what I came up with so far, need help if there should be changes to this list. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/xQKrGG

1200 MAX $USD
I want to be able to do streaming and play games such as BF1, CS:GO, WWII and be able to do Photoshop and render videos.
I don't want to overclock.
I own 2 1080p 60hz monitor. Maybe eventually will upgrade to 1440 or 4k IDK yet.
I only need the computer nothing more. Already have the monitors, mouse, OS, keyboard, optical drive etc. I only need the PC parts.
This is my first PC build.

Do you have any good air cooler to propose?
I don't know, I'm above my budget.

Should I go with the 5820k, 6700k or 4790k.
Oh, I didn't know that. And I will upgrade eventually for 1440p dual monitors so that's why.
Thank you Mat!
Yes please, read before posting. I don't need : OS/Keyboard/Mouse/Monitors/Case/Disc drive, and I mentioned that I wanted a CPU that is between Intel Core i7-4790K or Intel Core i7-6700K, 1TB WD black series, Define R5 for my case, GTX 980TI. Prices in CAD
I don't need : OS/Keyboard/Mouse/Monitors/Disc drive
1. Budget & LocationCanada ($CAD) - Less then 2500$2. AimGaming (CPU intensive games such as ARMA III), recording, hosting servers with friends, rendering.3. Monitors2x 1920x10804. PeripheralsI don't need : OS/Keyboard/Mouse/Monitors/Case/Disc drive5. Why are you upgrading?I'm given my PC to my brother so I need a new one.
(** : I was thinking of getting a GTX 980 TI, Intel Core i7-4790K or Intel Core i7-6700K because IDK if DDR4 is worth it, at least 16gb of ram, 1tb HDD WD black + a SSD (around 200gb I'd say), I want air cpu cooler,I'm going with the define r5 for the case )

1. Budget & LocationAround 2000$CAD (Can go up or down).
2. AimGaming, hosting servers with friends, play intensive CPU game like ARMA 3, a lot of multitasking, streaming/recording etc.3. MonitorsI have two monitors at 1920x1080.4. PeripheralsI only need a computer build nothing else.5. Why are you upgrading?I gave my old computer to my little brother.
# There's so much stuff out there it's really hard to find the right parts for a new build. I was thinking of buying the 980 TI with a i7-4790k or maybe a i7-6900k depending if DDR4 is really worth it.
