I do run my PC pretty much 24/7. I'll see where the prices are when I order the essentials in a month. I likely won't be able to hold out much longer than that haha.

Both Windows 7 and 10 64-bit can handle up to 192GB of memory. I don't see why it wouldn't be stable with 32GB of memory?
I found this tool for finding memory leaks. Maybe it will help you, it doesn't really help me anymore than the resource monitor does.
I'm going to Micro Center today. They have that sweet deal still going on for the 6700 at $310. Combined with the motherboard I'll get an additional $30 off.
Looks like it'll be roughly ~$455 with tax. I hope they price match. I'd like to pick up some memory, but their prices are $20-50 above newegg right now and they might not even have what I want.
I figure I can grab the Mobo, CPU, and memory for the time being. I'll just run with my current SSDs and my current PSU until I figure out what graphics card I want.
I was looking at this GTX 970 for $255 after rebate. My current PSU should be able to handle this I would think. (It's either 500 or 600W)
I figure that will last me until the 1080s drop in price since it looks like it's going to take much longer than November to get them into a price range/availability I'd accept. I can always retire the 970 into a computer for my girlfriend who lacks any type of machine with graphics capabilities.
In terms of the graphics card - Good idea? Bad idea? I'm fairly lost in the sea of avaiable cards and price vs performance so I feel like I'm reaching in the dark here.
Edit: Also, should I be more concerned with memory speed or CL? I've been trying to find CL 14 memory and it is slim pickings when it comes to 3000MHz memory with a CL of 14.
