Motherboard: Planning to overclock?

 

GPU: I'd recommend AMD RX 480 for much better DX12 support.

 

PSU: Medium quality, for example EVGA GS 550 is much better.

 

CPU: Expensive and only quad core. I recommend either much more cheaper i5-6500/i5-6400 or better LGA2011-3 platform with i7-5820K/i7-6800K.

 

SSD: OK

 

MEM: DDR4 is preferred for LGA1151 and LGA2011-3 platforms.

 

Windows (you mean HDD?): As you already have SSD, I recommend WD Blue or Seagate 7200 RPM instead.

im new to the trade.. my only goal is to have a great PC that will handle fallout 4 at ultra/max settings... im not interested in 4K or VR. Any suggestions would be amazing.

Fallout 4 engine is awfully outdated so I see no reason to make any new purchases based on that game only. So in generally I would expect you want good gaming rig and not just "FO4 Ultra" machine, right?

 

If you have enough budget for LGA2011-3 platform, I recommend it against LGA1151. So your budget is? And do you have an old computer?

The Fallout 4 engine is old, I think it's a modified version of the Creation Engine which powered Skyrim, which is a modified version of the Gamebryo Engine from Fallout 3.  In other words, you don't need a super high-end PC to run the game.  If you don't need this PC right now, you can wait until Q1 2017 when AMD's Zen CPU's and Vega GPU's are out which may, hopefully, put downward pressure on CPU and GPU pricing. 

 

An LGA 2011 CPU and quality motherboard is still going to be expensive, you may want to budget a bit more than $1100 if you want to go that route.  The CPU and motherboard for an LGA 2011 would easily be over $500. 

 

Don't worry too much about full DirectX 12 support, games are slowly being made for it and it will still be a while before it is commonplace.  The RX 480 is a nice card, but hard to find.  A GTX 1070 is more than adequate.
