I was thinking about upgrading my gaming rig for quite some times now, this of course is not my first build, but it's been quite some time since my last one(5 years ago), so during all these years i didn't keep up with all the latest technologies, but after doing some research i managed to come up with this:

CPU : Intel Core i7-6850K(6 core)
GPU : Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming 8GB
RAM : 16 GB(2 x 8GB) DDR4
HDD : WD Green Desktop 6TB SATA 6Gb/s OR 2x Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB
MB : ???(Nothing fancy)
Case: Corsair Carbide 100R OR Zalman Z9 Neo Blanc
PSU : My old Antec Truepower 750Watts

keep in mind that i'll probably stick to it for another 5 years so :

What do you guys think about it?
Is it future proof?
What would you change in this setup?

Thanks in advance :)

Go with WD red or blue for the desktop, but I'd go with at LEAST a 256 GB 850 EVO SSD for boot/couple games and then HDD for storage.

Save some money with this one, I plan on getting it myself -

Otherwise, just pick one that you want, easy.
