What is the overall budget for this PC?  You may want to wait until AMD's new RX 480 comes out.  Assuming the prices and performance previews are accurate, this may put downward price pressure on some GPU's.  if you are looking to save some money, you can cut the RAM by half and still have great performance.  That much RAM is usually unnecessary except under certain conditions, such as rendering.  Alternatively, you could go for different RAM, such as G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133.  If you are going for that GPU, you only need a 700W or so PSU, so you can get one with a lower wattage, such as the EVGA 210-GQ-0750-V1 750W

CPU: 6700K is overpriced and build quality is very poor on every almost aspect (durability, thermal paste under HS). Alternative: Core i7-5820K.

Cooler: OK

MB: That's for non-overclockable CPU's, so absolutely no. Alternative: Any Z170 board OR any LGA2011-3 board is going with i7-5820K.

Memory: 2*16GB is better choice.

Storage: HDD is OK, but SSD is missing

Video card: As DJBPace07 said, RX480

Case: OK

PSU: as DJBPace07 said

Windows: Retail version is much better http://pcpartpicker.com/product/wskwrH/microsoft-os-kw900016

Much better.

 

SSD is using TLC chips and because MLC is better than TLC, go for http://pcpartpicker.com/product/KzyxFT/crucial-internal-hard-drive-ct250mx200ssd1

I have a few more questions. Would it be better to buy a mid or full tower case? Should i buy extra fans? Lastly, what is a good cpu fan that is very quiet?

Bigger case makes building and upgrading computer easier. Extra fans depends on how many fans case have default. Many choices for silent CPU cooler, one http://pcpartpicker.com/product/B8rcCJ/thermalright-cpu-cooler-legrandmachort

One thing about fans though, don't just go a bunch of fans and slap them all over the place. Most towers are designed with specific airflow paths designed, so if you put and extra fan pulling or pushing air in the wrong direction. it'll completely ruin your cooling. 

 

*Edit for tower sizes. Personally, i think it comes to personal preference, and space. I have a Full tower, and I wouldn't do it any other way because i'm constantly working in it, add/remove parts so on and so forth. But it does take up a LOT of room.

Ive decided to go with a full tower. i went with this one https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mn3RsY/phanteks-case-phes614pbk after reading many good reviews on it and it has a good price.

 

also for the video card i am looking for the best performance. the price doesnt bother me so would the r9 390 be better than the RX480?

What is known so far, RX480 is overall much better.

With DX12, no. With Windows using network connection, no. If playing only casual or light games and not having anything on background (=not doing any multitasking), yes.

 

Forget offline benchmarks, they just don't have any reflection on real world use. Offline benchmarks may show that dual core is good for gaming. Now when Windows wants to update itself, it puts 2 cores to maximum load. Not hard to guess how "good" dual core is for gaming then.

 

Other reasons for i7-5820K are better durability (i7-6700K is just too weak http://www.extremetech.com/computing/218918-thinner-intel-skylake-cpus-are-breaking-because-of-third-party-cpu-coolers ) and while 5820K has soldered HS (heatspreader), i7-6700K has crappy thermal paste under HS. It's hard to understand why anyone pays over 300$ for crap like 6700K when much faster CPU with much better build quality cost only about 50$ more.
