Now the new graphics cards are out I am looking at my build.
When I was looking before, various people commented that I was putting too much money into things like motherboard and case so I am trying to lower the prices of the ones I was previously looking at so I can get a reasonable build.
I am looking to use it for Gaming / CAD / Digital Art so would prefer to stick to 16gb ram to future proof me. I am looking at the i5 6500 and the graphics card is just there as a place holder more than anything else. I am not bothered by getting an RX 480 or a gtx 1060 but I dislike the idea of the 3gb 1060 because it seems to lack any kind of future proofing at all.
I would love to either drop the price or get more for my money and if people could give alternatives and some reasons then I can tweak things.
