This'll be the first PC I've ever build, which is why I'll need some help with it. I already had a little bit of advice from other sources but thought I'd ask here for more clarity. It's a budget-build made for gaming, it'll have a lot of activity (imagine 1 or 2 games with some tabs open in the browser) so 16GB RAM is what I'm going with. Trying to hit almost every game on the highest settings. The budget is about €900 but I can go higher to about €1000 or even above, depends on what you guys can come up with. This PC is expected to last a long time, atleast 3 years before upgrading a part. The GPU is a GTX 1070. It'd be amazing if you could tell me the prices in Euros, even more grateful if it was from newegg.com (Netherlands).
First off the CPU, I've heard this is a pretty good one and I think I wouldn't want to get a more expensive one than this one.
The motherboard is something I want some advice on, in relation to the other parts (duh) and to the case. Don't forget peripherals, mainly keyboard, mouse and monitor.
The memory seems pretty good, if there are compatibility issues, do let me know.
I only have an HDD but will probably get an SSD (512GB) later on to store (larger) games on, so please keep that in mind.
The GPU is a GTX 1070 as I said, nothing to say about that.
As I said earlier, the case is something which is worrying me, do I need a bigger one or something else that would interfere with the build.
The PSU seems pretty good, keep in mind that there'll some parts added on later (SSD).
Lastly the cooling, I don't have any additional cooling in this build, it'll probably be needed so I'm asking for a good, not to expensive fan that doesn't make to much noise. PWN is preferred.
That's about it, I know it'll probably become an even more expensive build later on (but cheaper would be nice), because I haven't included cooling yet. Thank you in advance!
