Default i7 950 upgrade time

Hey PP-Mc, time to upgrade to a 6600k and in need of mobo and 16Gigs of ram suggestions.

Not looking for a top of the scale board, Canadian dollar sucks so things are expensive and I don't need all the features.

Link some stuff in your price range. If you're getting the K chip might as well get Z170.

Don't know if you're against mATX boards but this is a decent deal.

Then just search for the parts on there. I seriously hate looking for parts on NCIX.

Damn it... I do too so I was hoping you'd do it.

Overall, is there anything to avoid getting in a mobo?

Make sure it has an M.2 slot, and make sure it's not a piece of crap. I'd actually look for you if I wasn't getting ready to head to my best friend's house and assemble a brand new 5960x rig and put our Titans together lol.

Bit much, over the top, and I don't like Gigabyte.
