Hello, can you give me opinions on this current build? I will be upgrading a lot in the future, next year I am looking to grab a new motherboard and an I7 then the year after that I will either grab a 1070 or 1080- hopefully 1080.

this way you change the CPU for an overclockable i7 in the future and the RX 470 for a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080

you save a little bit of money that way.

Yes, this is for gaming. I am getting this for Christmas so i and my dad said under $1500 so I decided to go and max out on the keyboard microphone etc. while i will be upgrading the cpu mother board and gfx card in the future, that is also why i went with a 500 GB SSD and 1 TB SSD. I will be looking for an over clocking I7 and hopefully a 1080ti when it comes out. This will run most games at 60 fps for now so that's good.

I recommend getting the motherboard you plan to stick with because it would be a lot easier to upgrade parts in the future if you did. Also you could get an OEM copy of Windows and save a bit of money that way.

Also are you going to upgrade the monitor as well?

The OEM copy is the disc copy right?

Yeah, but you can make a bootable drive for free off of their website.

OEM doesn't mean it comes on a disc.

OEM is more like... ever had an Acer PC or laptop?

If you do a new installation from their windows disc, you get all that freaking bloatware.

Ever had a DELL? The windows disc already installed all drivers for your model (e.g. Dell Dimension 8400 Extreme)

OEM is not meant to be sold to private people, but it is allowed.
