That SSD is crap, and the psu is not a good choice. Why are you going with an older architecture and the GTX 970? Also what is your total budget as the psu doesnt have a price?

my budget is around $1500. I dont really catch up with the current technology and my experience is zero ( just google a bit and build this set)

Ok.. :)

First the V300 is crap.

You need a better PSU.

The GTX 1060 which is newer and more efficient outperforms the GTX 970. Its also cheaper.

As for gaming the i5 is a much better cpu and it will perform better as you can overclock it. It will perform better without overclocking it.

As for the cooler, you definitely don't want a 120mm liquid cooler which makes little sense as you can get an air cooler with same or similar performance for less. Liquid coolers makes sense if getting a 240mm or larger.

I went ahead and selected parts for a black and white theme (cooler and mobo are black and white), selected a better case IMO which is cheaper and much nicer. This build will perform better.

You're a funny guy.. The OP has a build around 1400 and you recommend one around 1800. Spending that much on a motherboard is absurd. This build will not work without a psu and the H7 doesnt even have a price.

thanks guys, really appreciate these recommendation. If I can extend the budget to ~ $1700, is this set below worth ( price/performance) . My friend in US just suggested this. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/Mw4H4C

I don't get the recommendations.. Going with a locked i5 and a Z170 motherboard. The cooler I recommended is better and cheaper. Also with a locked cpu, you can use the stock That is included. PSU is not a good choice.

If I can extend the budget to ~ $1700,

Obviously this build will be around 1800 considering its around 1700 and the ssd doesnt even have a price and it will be around 100 additional.

If you would of clicked on it u would see that its 55$

Obviously price is not showing because it is out of stock so it is impossible to buy even at 55 when its not even available.
