It depends if you want quality or performance.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I chose a cheaper but still great SSD. I chose a better video card than isn't insanely overpriced and is way cheaper. Lastly, I chose a cheaper monitor.
You're welcome! I would also recommend this PSU over the one you chose.
The M9i is quiet.
Yeah, but it would help a ton if he could spare the extra money. Nice build BTW.
The extra money for an RX 470 would definitely be worth it.
A better cooler would be the CRYORIG M9i.
Don't upgrade your Cooler since you have a locked CPU.
Providing you can get an good overclock, have no budget, and valuing rendering and editing and streaming over gaming.
What do you mean by unique?
Amazing build (+1), but why the G3 over the RMx?
You don't need a Z170 or a Z270 for the processor since it can't overclock. I would recommend an SSD. The RX 480 outperforms the GTX 1060 and I would make the extra investment to get a better case.
Logysis' power supplies are extremely dangerous and you should never recommend him one. It is like recommending him a grenade inside his PC.
Would a custom Mountain Dew loop work?
1070 - 1080p 144Hz or 1440p 60Hz
1080 - 1440p 144Hz or 4K 60Hz
Ok. Seems fair.
As mark5916 said, you probably want an i7. I chose a chose a better video card and a better PSU. I also chose an SSD.
Why you should choose an SSD: I once had a hard drive only computer, and whenever I had to open something, create a new account, etc, it took forever. I later added an SSD and my PC was way faster. You are only hindering yourself not using an SSD.
+1 for the PSU + the Taichi.
1080p 144Hz or 1080p 60Hz?
The RX 480 4GB version outperforms the GTX 1060 3GB version and is on par with the GTX 1060 6GB version. The RX 480 8GB version outperforms the GTX 1060 6GB version. If you can go a little over your budget, go for the RX 480 8GB.
I chose a cheaper but still great Motherboard, cheaper RAM, but I got an INSANELY better GPU and a better PSU.
How do you add food? I want to...
I don't need more than that.
My personal dream setup:
What is this for?
I chose a Kaby Lake CPU and a cheaper Motherboard. The Video Card you chose was very overpriced and the RX 480 anyways performs better. The PSU you chose was bad, and I picked one of the best PSUs in the world.
You will get like 2,000 dollars from selling it, then you could build a beast gaming PC setup with that type of money.
I would recommend the G2 550W over the GS.
Yes. Sell it.
This is not for gaming so he doesn't need a graphics card but thx for the help anyways.
I know but that is his max budget.
The ASRock Z270 Extreme4.
The Acer B286HK.
RX 480 is better, and if you don't live in the US, why is you part list in USD?
You're welcome! :D
Look at the features, and if you think the Asus one is worth the extra 162 dollars, go for it!
Ah ok. I understand now!
Just a quick question: Why are you considering Linux over Windows 10?
OK. The RX 470 will probably reach 60 FPS in those games.
The RX 470 will probably do very well on those games.
P.S. BTW, what is the most intensive game you plan on playing and what resolution do you want your monitors to be? Also, do you plan on overclocking?
The RX 470 is probably overkill for your needs, but it is a very good GPU. The Hyper 212 EVO is beat by coolers such as the CRYORIG H7, which I included in my build. The Motherboard you chose seemed very overkill, so I downgraded it. I upgraded your case to the Elite version, which has tempered glass. I also changed your PSU because it was overkill.
Definitely not first Kaby Lake build.
There is more than one page.
For starters, the value of your video card is downright terrible. A much better card for the same price would be the PowerColor Radeon RX 480 8GB Red Devil.
Dude you have no case...
