My second Build (opinions please)

37 months ago

Like the Title says. I'm looking to build a new computer as my first one is outdated and from what I've been told is just plain bad. I took a lot of time and effort in trying to come up with upgrading it but it always came down to the motherboard. So Now i'm just staring from scratch. Hoping to build one with sticking close too $1000.

So please let me know what you think! (If your interested in my first build then i posted the link at the Bottom)

A 850 watt PSU is totally pointless, you have a high end Z170 board but the CPU is locked, you have a locked CPU, the Evo 212 isn't of great value anymore. That SSD has issues and is very overpriced. Too much for that RAM. Do you want to overclock?

i figured the PSU would make me have room to upgrade. I don't really know how to overclock so i have been intimidated by doing that. What about the SSD has issues? would you suggest a different one? Same with the 212 which cooler should i go for?...apparently im very bad at this lol

What about this for the cooler? Noctua NH-D15

Not a good choice since the Sytche Fuma exists which out performs it for a good amount for less. Anyways if you aren't going to overclock you are going to be changing up your build a lot.

Different motherboard, different Memory, Different SSD, Different Video Card

Any reason why? are they better or just cheaper. I should of noted before but i want to be able to upgrade rather than build a new one later on. Would this motherboard give me that potential?

you can upgrade to a i7 6700 of i7 7700 with this mobo. But If you want to upgrade to a cpu capable of overclocking you should get a z170 mobo.

I switched the mobo so i could get a much better GPU. Since the GTX 1070 is alot stronger then the GTX 1060.

RAM because its cheaper.

The Samsung 840 Pro ssd is just old and overpriceed thats why i switched.

No need for aftermarket cooler since the CPU is locked and comes with a stock cooler. It has a cheap Z170 motherboard so you still have options like SLI and the ablity to do baseclock overclocking down the road with a cheap HSF if you are wanting more power out of the CPU. It has cheaper and faster RAM. It has a better case. It has more SSD space. It is also a bit below your budget and I didn't use MiR's.

First don't get the Samsung ssd just get a cheaper one second don't get a hype 212 evo for your CPU it doesn't need it

Also just get an h110 chip step on your mobo instead of a z170
