Alright the build seems fine

However, if you have no wishes to overcloak, you might want to change to a b150 motherboard

I have heard that corsair PSU is really bad, but i think that it should be alright

Im not real computer smart i just wanted to try n beef up what i could within budget to make it last as long as possible 3- 5 years im hoping lol chose the z board for better possible upgrade? Wanted better then 2133 ram as well even though i dont know if it will make that much difference, lower cas# too. My last computer i had lasted 12 years and ran all i needed till it died heh. Dont remember its specs except it had 9500gt gpu and win xp. Think it had win 98 at first lol

Oh ok then if you want it to last that long

IF you really want to get slightly better frames per second for gaming, then higher ghz in ram would help

otherwise the build seems just fine actually

Yea just looking for some nice 1080p gaming. Nothing crazy just games like WoW, DDO, CS:GO...ect.

With the gtx 1060, i expect this build to get around 150 fps per second in 1080p ultra mode

In other games it should get around 60+fps

Btw, the gtx 1060 performance is likely the same as gtx 980
