Just wondering if my parts are compatible or if there's a cheaper way

Hey all,

Trying my first build and getting close to ordering. Was hoping to get some advice on if everything will work together, the MOBO says it supports DDR4-2133 ram but i've seen other builds on here using the same mobo with DDR4-2400 ram. Mostly going to be gaming so ram shouldn't be an issue anyway if i have to drop down. As for the rest i'm wondering if there are any cheaper options that give relatively the same output.

my build: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/Xwfz6X

Thanks for the help

No point getting an unlocked CPU with a locked Motherboard.

Only a Z170 chipset Motherboard will run RAM faster than 2133M/T, otherwise faster RAM will be down-clocked.

Gigabyte a/c WAN better than TP Link.

Thanks for the tips, Gonna go with your revisions, you saved me $100. Is there a reason you removed the CPU cooler. Will it not be necessary for my usage?

The stock CPU Cooler supplied with the CPU will be absolutely fine for this build unless your priority is silence or aesthetics.
