If I were going to build a system today, I would use:
images/bd10265.gif Joe Whinery's List of Excel Spread Sheet - PC Build Specs: (Compare Prior Build Specs).

Intel Z170 Chipset + DDR4 Memory Build Specification For Reference & Discussion. These preferences are combined from 2 PCs Built. Variations include amount of RAM, Monitor choices and Video card available at the time of each Build. Remember: When purchasing online, use a Credit Card!

Intel now uses DDR4 Memory. We've increased the DRAM speed to DDR4 3200MHz.
