First time, I just wanted to know if this is an alright setup? Im trying to basically keep it low as I can and get some good value out of it.

I also wanted to know if this PSU would work with the setup? I got it for free so might as well try saving something and use it. http://www.serverworlds.com/dell-wh113-poweredge-840-power-supply-420w-ps-5421-1ds-rohs/

Can't check the compatibility of it, but it should be okay as long as it has the correct cables and fits in your case. I just changed your RAM up a bit.

Thank you! Just wondering, what's the difference between this new RAM and the previous one?

2x4GB instead of 1x8Gb, and it was like 70 cents less.

Ooooh ok thanks! Ya I'm in Canada so the prices change a little and the same websites aren't always available. Everything's more expensive here :'(

Get on pcpartpicker's canadian site. Change your location in the top-right of this page.

Search for "slickdeals computer parts" and check out some great deals on graphics cards. I think jet.com and newegg will ship to Canada, but verify before hand.

Can't talk much about prices cuz I'm not familiar with Canadian prices. As for the build, that i3 is great. The 1060 3GB for a close price to the 470 and 480 is usually better. Get a dual fan model for lower temp, less noise, and higher overclock potential. Look up professional reviews to make sure you got a good one.

As for RAM, there's no significant difference between 1x8GB and 2x4GB--especially for gaming and basic tasks. Get whichever is cheaper. If you plan on upgrading, the 1x8 leaves room for another 8GB.

When looking for RAM, minimize CL (or rather, CAS) and price. On any mobo except the Z170, you can't get the speed higher than 2133 MHz.
