I hope all of you could help me, and save me the pain of having to work for even more money wasting it on things

Thanks!

Working on it, you're not making it easy wanting that 160$ case, which basically means it's a 750$ budget.

Wasn't being serious about the guy with the 5k post, But that case is an extremely good, and has a lot of good features for a newer builder like me and also has astonishing looks.

I'm not gonna argue with that, it is a stunning case, I love it. But at this budget, hmm. Lemme see if I can make something.

Yes they do. Skylakes do, Broadwell-E doesn't.

Go with only a 1tb hard drive unless you really need the space, go to one 8gb stick unless you are using an insane about of tabs, and then look at the business class boards (H series chipsets). I would also go to the 6700 non k part if you are planning on not overclocking.

I am definitely going to be overclocking, no doubt about that. The 2TB is about the price of some 1TB HDD's, and I'm also going to be needing a lot of storage, and for the RAM, I need a decent amount of ram as I do motion design, and rendering takes a decent amount of ram, and I will be multitasking while doing so.

Then my only other suggestion would be to get a lower wattage power supply. You do not need a 750W psu for that system.

Ok, sounds like a plan,

My thoughts:

 

If you're really stuck to this specific case I'd go for this: Lower wattage PSU, better cooler. It does come in slightly over 900$. You don't want to overclock an i7 with a 212 EVO if you're going to have it render stuff, just get something that keeps temperatures down more.
