Not bad. You have 2 cpu coolers on there though, I would keep the C7. Also are you in between those 2 monitors? If I were you i would change that SSD to a Samsung 850 Evo 250gb

The 250gb 850 evo is 95 bucks. The price is insane. He is better off with the MX300 275gb for 70 bucks.

They are priced like that because they are basically the best consumer SSD's still. While technically you won't realistically see a big difference the 850 Evo is still considerably faster than the MX300.

But yes, if budget is a big concern something cheaper and bigger is obviously smarter.

Regular price for the 250gb 850 evo was 70 bucks... NOw its just insane paying 25 extra bucks. No way someone will even notice the difference unless you are going to be copying large amount of files but for normal operation and gaming there wont be a difference that the OP can notice.

I paid like $140 for my 850 Evo 250gb like 2 years ago... Maybe it was on sale recently for $70 but this is the first time I have seen it regularly priced below $100 and I believe the 960 series or something is dropping soon so that's probably why. You might be thinking of the 750? Its like $70

No.. I build one for my sister last year and she purchase the 850 evo for 71 bucks. That was the price everywhere (amazon, newegg).

Whoops. I mistook a CPU cooler for a case fan, ha! Thanks for telling me. I want both monitors, as I am planning for a dual monitor setup (hence why I considered a GPU with two HDMI ports). I only need one 144hz monitor, and I like the monitor model, so I went with the same monitor, but at a little bit lower quality. Also, what is better about the Evo compared to the Ultra II?

Make sure you get an HDMI 1.3 cable, 1.2 and below do not support 144 fps.

Thanks! I'm also planning on mounting a 120mm case fan on the ceiling of the case. Do you have any recommendations?

I personally like Corsair fans. As for the case check out the Thermaltake Core V21. I would imagine it to be a higher quality version of what you selected within a couple $

I dont understand the 3200 ram? Anything higher than 2133 will be downclocked. Get cheaper ram.

Get the i5-6500, as the 6600 makes little sense.

You can get the arctic mobo if you want a white theme build.

Get the MX300 which is larger and also cheaper.

I didn't realize the 6600 was ~$30 more than the 6500. I was under the impression they were both $200+.

I second the i5-6500

Currently updating the list. Thanks for the feedback. For the OS, can I get a USB drive and download the Windows 10 media on it, then boot the PC from the USB to install it? It seems better than buying an OS.

Yes downloading from microsoft site will get you latest build available which is the best option. Eventually you will need to purchase a key as windows will install in trial mode.

Newbie question: Does the ATX PSU fit in the MicroATX case correctly?
