✔ Best Answer
It's not our job to look up prices for you. But everything you've listed below the 2TB hybrid drive is a waste of money. Also, do you realize the Core i7 is now in generation 8? The gen 5 (Haswell) i7-5930k is from 2014.

To expand a little on my comments:
- there's no way you need a 1300W PSU. A 650W will suffice & will save you about $100.
- the tower case is ridiculously overpriced. A "normal" case would cost almost $200 less.
- all the pretty fans & watercooling are, once again, a waste of money. A decent aftermarket heatsink/fan & a couple of 120mm or 140mm exhaust fans in the case are all that's needed. Intake fans are unnecessary. Remember, all you're doing is venting a box that's less than 2.0 cubic feet in size. A single Phanteks 140mm fan is rated at about 80CFM, which means the entire case is completely vented out & refreshed 40 times per minute, or every 1.5 seconds.

If you tally up all those savings & buy wisely, you should easily be able to afford a modern CPU & motherboard instead of getting ones that are almost 5 years old.

You are either trying to get a value on a machine you already have or trying to see if the price quoted to you for purchasing a used machine is worth it.
It would be better to ask the honest question straight forward.

If you are planning on building a machine, there are better options. Like why 2 SSD drives and then a hybrid drive? One faster PCIe SSD drive and one fast conventional drive would be better.
A new 8th Gen K-series i7 OC to 5.0GHz would run on a very good air cooled heat sink for a lot less complexity than water cooled and give you better performance.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
