Like your opinions on this parts list for gaming PC, VR ready with some capability to upgrade. Not interested in overclocking.

Am a little worried about the power consumption.

Thanks in advance.

Your list has the Sapphire RX 480 4gb, I have the 8gb version and I think it's worth the $40-$50 upgrade.

Unless you're heart set on going for a purely AMD build, I recommend this skylake build. It will run a lot cooler and probably quieter as well as having stronger CPU performance in gaming. It has a much better CPU upgrade path, and the RX 470 has pretty similar performance to the RX 480. I also got you a 1tb hard drive for files and a 120GB SSD for your programs, if you want to bump up the GPU to an RX 480 again I would remove the SSD (And then probably add one later)

Thanks Rainbow6Sheep. I've combined your recommendations with that of vagabond139 and added Windows 10 back in.

How do I get it to show up here like you have, not as a link?

Near the top of the list you should see something saying "Markup"
Click on the Pc Part Picker logo, copy the text you see and paste it into a post.

Agreed. CXM unit seems to get a discount quite frequently. Gonna wait for that.

Go Intel, zero reason to go AMD anymore. The FX 8350 is on par with a i3 6100. That PSU costs a bit too much.

It has a much better CPU, it has a better PSU, it has only a very slightly downgrade in GPU, it has a 1TB HDD since a 240GB SSD isn't enough for gaming. All of this for about $15 more. I assume you aren't using MiR's.

Thanks vagabond139. I've combined your recommendations with that of Rainbow6Sheep, updating the wireless adapter and (cheaper) power supply. No idea what to look for in a power supply anymore - both are 400+W, Bronze...

Efficiency means nothing but efficiency when it comes to PSU's. It does not equal performance or quality. Plus some PSU's can do more than they claim like CXM which iirc it can do gold and some companies over rated.
