I am a first time builder from uk and will be using my build primarily for gaming but also streaming videos. I origally had a budget for 600£ but that didn't happen. I would simply like thoughts, opinions and any problems you might see with my build.

  1. No point getting a Z170 motherboard or that cooler with the 6500. The skylake non-k overclocking was patched out a while ago if that was your thought process.

  2. Get a 250GB SSD and a 1TB Hard drive instead of just one 500GB SSD, that will run out pretty quickly.

  3. You don't need a small form factor GPU since you have a full ATX case. Although I'm guessing you went for it because it's the cheapest 6GB 1060 right now.

  4. Hardware Canucks found out a while ago that the front dust filter on the enthoo pro M doesn't fully cover all the front intakes, meaning dust can get in your system. I left it on the list, but I'd recommend finding another case you like.

  5. Added another 8GB of ram since you had some money left over. If you want to save like £30 then 8GB is fine for gaming.
