So you already purchased the above setup or are looking for other options besides the above? The below is cheaper (minus headset/optical drive), but offers much better performance. You can substitute the 500gb SSD for a 250gb and a spin disk to still include a headset also.

Well im asking for opinions, regardless if its advice, another setup recommendation or something else. And yes, I already purchased the setup.

Im not looking to upgrade the RAM amount. I dont really need 4 RAM slot MOBO because i dont really use the computer for gaming. I know that dual-channeled RAM gives you better performance but its only in games. I opted for an i3 instead of on i5 because as i said i dont really game much on this machine. I do my homeworks for school and i use software for photography and that the only reason i bought a GPU. I chose the 1050 because it had more VRAM than the 1060 3GB, but the clock speed is lower. Thats because when you work with pictures you dont need fast GPU you need rather huge amount of VRAM. I just wanted an RGB keyboard just for the sake of the looks, regardless if it was mechanical or not and the same goes for the monitor and the 144Hz. Just personal prefference. Anyways, I thank you a lot for the amazing feedback! Cheers!

The GTX 1060 has a 6gb version, which both of us included in the parts list.

This should not of been a forum post (At least in this forum imo) as much as it should of been uploaded as a completed build with the title "Looking for Opinions"
