Yes I know it is much more expensive than I could build it for, but wanted something aesthetically pleasing. I am still considering changing the mobo to a H110 and putting the extra money into a i5 6500 or rx 480/gtx 1060. Other than that, thoughts?

For CS:GO, i3 is more than enough unless you plan on playing bigger titles. The B150 is a better motherboard than an H110. I recommend getting the G2 instead of the GS.

I have a few saved build lists and have the G2 on all of them. Must have clicked fast and didn't notice. Come purchase date, I will be getting best bang for buck PSU. So would get an RM550X or G2 or Seasonic depending the current sale or price. Thanks for feedback.

MY original build had a H110 as well, but the ac model. I just like the extra couple features that a B150 or H170 board gives and it's only an extra 20-30 bucks after you include the wireless adapter with that mobo. Haven't made up my mind 100% yet, so this still may be the option I go. Thanks for input
