Been a long time since I built for myself....

I am not a major gamer, playing WoW still but interspersed with CoD, BF and a few newer games here and there.

I want future proof for a few years and I want the system to be in a smaller case so choose the Aerocool Xpredator Cube.

This is what I have built so far and no problems are showing up.

Any thoughts from the professionals?

  • change the CPU to i5-6600k
  • Do you really need 32 GB RAM? 8 is fine, 16 is future proof (gaming)
  • I'd go for this M.2
  • 650W is a lot of power

Money could definitely be better spent, dropping the AIO, 32GB or RAM which, unless you're doing something like video editing and it takes advantage of more RAM, 16GB is all you really need. And a cheaper, smaller and better case.

Thx Ill look at the parts.

32gb is because this isn't just a game machine and i run sql databases for work, code compiling, large excel models and other database type stuff.
