    As mentioned, if you aren't overclocking then get the non-K CPU and save that $30.

    Agreed on nearly all points brought up by other posters in this thread.

    A 750W PSU still sounds like (way) overkill. See what is the PSU requirement for the GTX 970 graphics card, and go with that. The ratings are usually for low quality PSU's, so a good quality PSU at the recommended wattage will be plenty.

    A good quality case is a must. Don't skimp.

    Haven't had a single problem with any games on Windows 10 with my build. Probably played 20 different games or so, and all have run flawlessly.

    I would personally get the K CPU to have the ability to overclock it in the future. Intel CPUs overclock likes champs with proper cooling solutions attached, and can significantly reduce your upgrade cycle.

    Totally agree.. Trying to save $20-30 down the road will hurt you more! Get the K CPU!
