Hi! I am in the process of planning out my PC for Nov black friday sale. I do like the current specs of my build, but I was seeing if there was anything I can cut to lower the cost. I will be using the PC to play games like Overwatch, LoL, GTA5, and other steam games. I do also will use this PC for some school work, but most of that will be done on my MBP. I am looking for this computer to last me several years and still stay competitive with requirements for future games. Thanks for taking the time to read this post and comment! All help is very much appreciated, and constructive feedback is very welcomed. This is also my first PC, so I might not understand the lingo.
There are also two compatibility issues: The Fractal Design Core 2300 ATX Mid Tower Case supports video cards up to 380mm long, but video cards over 200mm may block drive bays. Since the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB Superclocked ACX 2.0 Video Card is 241mm long, some drive bays may not be usable.
The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6Gb/s port is disabled.
Not sure what these mean, but i think it'll be okay haha
