1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Stupid answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work. Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.')
Ans: Will Install VMWARE, and will install several instance of Windows (AD/Mail/DNS/Web Servers). This is for learning.
Casual Gaming, Not Hardcore gaming. Have played Halo in the past and love it, maybe will explore similar themed games. Also Like NFS.



2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.

Ans: 80 K (can stretch it a bit for a killer system)

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?

How many VMs do you intend to run? If the number is more than 5-6 I have read on the net that FX 8350 might be better suited for the purpose. Although in single core performance FX 8350 will lose to i5 6500 as well as in gaming. But seeing how Gaming isnt on the top of your list you can go for FX 8350. In fact I had a similar dilemma couple of months back. I went through a number of threads in Anandtech and Tomshardware and most people there suggested FX 8350 for more than 5/6 VMs. So I have made 2 rigs - 1 for Gaming based on i5 6500 and GTX 1060 6GB and other AMD wherein I'll upgrade the CPU to FX8350. I'll wait for other forum members to suggest.

I would be running 3-4 VM's and not more than that. Ive had AMD Processors in the past and have been satisfied with its processor, but want to use Intel CPU's. Thanks for this insight.
I am looking at i7 CPU, and in future may add a graphics card and very much want to future proof for next 2-3 years.
Thanks for your suggestion, greatly appreciated.

Working or playing games on 17" monitor does not do justice or on any TV since its resolution is not good like a real monitor.
Also since you have budget, hence I suggested both 1080p GPU & Monitor.

Thanks for the suggestion. I do have a 19" Monitor and i am not looking at buying one now, same with GPU as well. Just want to make sure The MB I buy is future proofed to add GPU in future as well.

I have sent emails to pimegagbg and Golchha for best quotes.

Whats the difference with B150M and Z170 ?

B150 is for non-k skylake processors where as Z170 is for k series skylake processors.

For eg:
B150 - i5 6500
Z170 - i5 6600K
