Thanks for the heads up. Hardware innovation has moved on a bit since we configured your original build, so I recommend a MB upgrades for your consideration.
As they say, not terrible exciting, chipset wise, but is for motherboards. The Asrock board will give you 8 SATA ports, 2 x RJ-45 LAN, improved M.2 support, Thunderbolt, Better onboard switches + Debug LED.

Dropped the RAM speed, the Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory is not on the QVL list, only the V and Z series, also, even though it is XMP, many people have found it does not work unless timing and voltage is entered manually in the BIOS. The V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory will work and in the real world, there is negligible performance difference.
Having to go out now, will post again laer with frunther update.

Back again so will add a bit more.
Hi all. Starting to get close to being able to build it (Graduated and have a part time job but need a full-time job) and was wondering if this build still looked good. Also, I was wondering if there is a video card that is close to the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Video Card but cost a little bit less ($414). Should I add a sound card? Any suggestions on a RAID controller? I'm thinking about doing a three disk RAID 5.
Any input would be appreciated. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6qyLHN
Congratulation. Hope the job hunting goes well.
I will leave the video card till later,
Intergrated sound is very, very good today, so see if it good enough for you, add a card later if you want.
Same for RAID, us the MB software RAID first, Cheaper controllers are not all that good.
and regarding the selected Blue drives, they are not very suitable for RAID5 and up.
Recommend either of these, > https://www.newegg.c...-008^22-179-008
I won't change the build specs again, until we discuss.
