I was looking for that exact gpu earlier to use in this build but I the price wasn't showing up for me, so I assumed it was out of stock or something. But anyways, good build, go for this one OP

Actually... Both the builds are scrap. No Case lol...

I edited your build, and didn't notice till now, doesn't even have a case, lol.

eh, these things happen. I've edited it to include the i3-6100 instead, since that actually performs very close to the originally requested i5-4460 in gaming.

Though... now I'm thinking, we don't even know what this build is for, lol.

May I ask, is it worth spending more than twice the price of an H110 mobo on a B150 mobo?

Getting a lot more than just a better chipset there.

Better VRMs with heatinking, better aesthetics, much better built in audio, all solid caps (the cheap GA-H110M-A has more than half a dozen electrolytic capacitors), 4 DIMMs vs 2 DIMM slots, enother PCIE 16X (4X) slot.

The VRM's and audio alone are worth the price difference, the rest is gravy.

Do better VRMs mean better cooling?

all solid caps (the cheap GA-H110M-A has more than half a dozen electrolytic capacitors)

I'm not exactly sure what that means...

Sorry for my lack of knowledge, and thanks for the information.

Do better VRMs mean better cooling?

Better VRMs mean a lot of things. In this case, I would expect better efficiency, lower motherboard operating temps, better reliability, etc.

I'm not exactly sure what that means...

The el-cheapo gigabyte board has some electrolytic capacitors in places where most modern boards would spec solid capacitors.

If I were trying to do some shoe-horning with the budget, I would use the ASRock H110M-HDV for $10 more than the GA-H110M-A. That $10 resolves both of the reliability concerns I have with cheap boards (lytic caps and hot/bare VRM's).

ASRock seems to be doing pretty good this time when it comes to LGA1151 motherboards.

Definitely.
