Instead of getting the GAMING X, which is kinda pricy, try the 6GB gainward card. IDK how god gainward is being US based, but it's about the same price for more VRAM

also, the gtx 980 ti matrix from ASUS is also in stock for the same as a 1060 3gb, and it's more powerful than a 1060. Consider that

If the ssd isn't an 850 evo, try looking into other brands that use MLC not TLC

I think there could be better psus

Might want to get some af120 2 packs

I did fix the area's where i could

The ssd is pure booting and will not have games on it so thats why i have chosen 120gb
