Well if this is a gaming PC I would just go for a hard drive because 120 GB is not even close to being enough to holding the games this PC can handle.

Surely for $1200 you can at least grab yourself an SSD, even if its an 80GB one.

Z170 boards need BIOS updates for the newer "KabyLake" CPU's. You need to find a compatible board with your CPU which you can just look up online. You can use a B250 variant which won't require an update for the motherboard. With the amount of heat that thing gives off, which isn't very much, I would buy a 3rd party cooler just to be on the safer side. You can buy the optical drive whenever you like. It just gives you access to watching movies, playing disk games, etc.

Jesus Christ, that power supply. I would um, umm, burn it. If your PC parts ever get fried, I think you will know why.

I agree if you're going to have 1080p 60hz monitors with 2 way sli 1080's, you will not get the full gaming experience. It is extreme overkill for those types of monitors. I would opt for something like a 4K ultrawide or something with a refresh rate like 144hz.

If the colors don't matter to your friend then I see no reason for getting expensive RGB Lightning Peripherals. This should hold up for easy 1080p gaming on high/ultra for a lot of games. Not so sure about programming since I dont know anything about it.

You can get a higher wattage power supply for the same price that's more reliable just to be future proof in case you buy some higher wattage parts.

I put an OS just because, you can spend the money on a mouse pad or some LED Strips.

I have one question, why do you have a AIO Cooler and why does it looked like it's "ribbed for her pleasure."

You could save a bit of money by going for a Kraken X51 instead. There really isn't much of a difference in price-performance. I also only see a 500 GB SSD which may serve you well for a bit, games now a days are gettings bigger and bigger and if you want this PC to be future proof then I would suggest going with a 1 TB drive and the SSD just to be on the safe side of things.

I wouldn't suggest it mainly because it's a brand I have never heard of before but gsync may be difficult to find on a 4K monitor. You probably have 3 options...

A - You can buy that Korean Ultrawide

B - You can buy a monitor with Gsync but no 4K display

C - You can buy a monitor with a 4K display but no Gsync

Will it be used for heavy gaming or what types of games are you planning to play on this?

My personal favorite would be the "27" display by LG. Features freesync, a 4K display, and the monitor is humongous when compared to other 27 inch monitors. It's downside is that it's only 60Hz and the stand can be a bit wobbly so I suggest mounting it to a wall.

Go ahead and grab yourself an iMac while your at it and maybe some Intel Xeon's. Seems about right for your build.

So, I am a first time builder and I'm sort of scared of messing up building this thing. I don't entirely know what to do but I should be fine.
