I am buying my parts in late or mid November. Does this build look good for playing overwatch, rocket league, Civ5/civ6, bf1, cod, etc. I want to keep the price around 1k usd. Are there any new parts coming out that I should wait on?

You don't need a cpu cooler, that cpu cannot be overclocked.

There are a few mismatching parts, as well as a bad PSU and unnecessary aftermarket CPU Cooler.

  • There's little performance increase from the i5-6600 to justify the extra cost.
  • Stock cooler will do fine if not overclocking.
  • Changed to a B150 board, since you're not overclocking.
  • Changed out the memory; I feel $85 was too much even for 16GB and even with RAM prices increasing as of late.
  • I picked a better SSD for that price range; if I was to go samsung I'd get the 850EVO for the VNAND technology.
  • The EVGA G2 is the successor to the outdated NEX (which has bad voltage ripple) series.
