This is my first build, so I'm not too familiar with the differences between mobos. I just read a bunch of reviews, and observed that most similar builds on pcpartpicker were using the z170 krait, so I went with that. I've also never had an SSD, so I'm sure the 850 will be a step up from traditional HDs.

Also just ordered an Asus ROG PG278Q monitor (2560x1440, 144Hz, 1ms). G-Sync sounds like a dream (bar the price premium - wtf?), so I'm looking forward to trying that out.

TL;DR: Huge step up from Y50 laptop and 2012 iMac
