This will also be my first ever time building a computer if purchased http://pcpartpicker.com/list/jymqhq

only thing im worried about is storage. i went cheap because all i really want the ssd for is to boot windows. i think the 1060 3g variant should be good with the 1060 6g being the 2nd option, i dont think there will be any sort of problem pairing it with the 6100

i like the keyboard because of the rgb but i was wondering if there was anything better for a little cheaper so if u could reccomend that that would be great.

Usage? Budget?

I mean it looks good but do you really need those two monitors? One should be fine and that cpu will bottleneck you HARD.

usage - in the title. budget - $1000, games such as bf1, infinite warfare, casual video playing, and a lot more games... I looked up some benchmarks and it seemed to run well as far as im concerned for bottlenecks. and two monitors is important to me because i like to feel organized and watch youtube while i game.

If you're trying to multitask by streaming video, etc while gaming, I would say try to fit an i5 into the budget. In more CPU intensive games the extra 2 cores will help a lot, especially when multitasking. You don't need an aftermarket cooler with a non K CPU, so you can cut that 30$ there. There are other changes you could make to stick to the 1000$ budget and fit that i5 in. Something like this maybe.

Dropped the CPU cooler. Changed to a cheaper, but still good quality PSU. Case and mobo changed to mATX form factor. Pretty much the same price while improving performance.

Nice. Would have suggested the same stuff.

Also you can watch youtube while gaming without two monitors... and if you do that you fully experience neither.

Alright, like the build, but probably be changing the case and keeping the rest. Thankyou!
