Smaller Form Factor Gaming Build

Olek

Need some advice on this gaming build. Intended for 1080p gaming with games like Fallout, Battlefield 1, ETC. Don't necessarily want a small form factor. Have a different parts list with an ATX form and an MSI 3GB card around the same price. Sticking to a budget of around $900. If you have any questions ask. Suggestions welcomed.

Things I'd personally change:

  • change cooler from C7 to H7
  • eventually change MOBO to fit the budget in the end
  • either 1x8GB or directly 2x8GB (upgradeability)
  • SSD would be nice
  • a dual blade GTX 1060
  • the CX550M is available for 40$. it has enough power for the build and it is semi modular (you gonna hook up the MOBO power and CPU power anyways.
