800$ Best Computer Challenge

Phyronite

Well one of my friends needs a new computer for his personal use.  He only has a budget of 800$ (USD), and this is the build I came up with: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/q2r7t6

 

However, I am curious if the community has any other good builds for this price point!

Intel Core i7-6700K | EK-XLC Predator 360 | Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI | Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB | Intel 600p Series 256Gb M.2 280 | PNY GTX 1070 XLR8 | NZXT H440 Black/Red| LG29UM68-P | Corsair RMx 750W 80+ Gold |

I don't think that i5 4460 needs a cooler unless he needs it silent. You might want to consider a skylake i5 6500.

If he doesn`t really want to expand in the future, you could go with a little bit cheaper PSU

 

Also the CPU cooler isn`t necessairy and if possible I would go with a 256 Gb EVO

to game or not to game, that`s the question
