Budget build (Canada currenties)

new list : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/GGryVY Old list : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/pxnWf8

Here is my build. I was going to pick the skylake i3 but some told me to get the i5 instead. With my budget with the i5 i need to wait before buying an Graphic card. I heard that the i5 one got an integrated graphic card so, for few week i think i can handle this. Would this pc run well?

My expectation is to buy an optical drive and Zotac gtx 1060 mini 4GB in few weeks around Christmas.

Any suggestion?

I did put the SSD even if its more expensive because one of the reason why i change my pc is for fast booting.

I will look to buy on Black friday !

Cool, but the minimum i5 & MOBO pair I would recommend is a 6500 & B150. Also, I suspect this is a gaming build?

Why not the i5 6400? The 2.7 Clock speed of the i5 6400 (even with the boost speed) is just sad. It will work well with CPU intensive games such as GTA V due to having more cores, but otherwise upgrade to an i5 6500 or save money with the comparable i3 6100. This little guy still packs a punch in gaming. As for the Motherboard. If you go with an i5, the B150 has many features and trumps the H110. Save cash with the H110 if you go with an i3.

Nice choice on starting with an SSD, maybe upgrade later with an HDD. Also, the GTX only comes in 3GB & 6GB variants not 4GB ;D.

Does it worth even to go with 6600 over the 6500? There alot of B150 so it's kind of confusing :O

3GB your right ! If you got better suggestion for graphic card it can be nice to have alternative!

Oh notice i need an Cooler for 6600 :o :(

Edit : Yea i am going for a gaming budget build . My 10 year old pc was always on low graphics haha with an 50 gb hdd so it's a big update. I dont plan to stock alot of games or even stuff it's not a big deal and i have 2 External hdd if i want to store stuff for later uses.

6500 is fine :)

1060 3GB is just what you're looking for.

That MOBO is a ITX size while your case is ATX size. Either get a smaller case or bigger mobo.

Can you pick me one ? Thanks for the info about the size, didnt knew that. I will probably stick with that case since it's cheap. I am novice so i dont realy manage to pick one MOBO.

There is approximatly 100$ difference with the MOBO i took , explain me a little bit more about the performance, sockets etc . Thanks alot for your help!!!

I dont think i need bluetooh and wifi on mobo too

You can also save by getting a 500 watt, 600 is way overkill for this rig.

I also think 16gb of ram for $15 more would, be more of use to you http://pcpartpicker.com/list/ktCsm8

So i stick with the MOBÔ i pick, and i Just add more ram ? What those ram would realy do right now ? More task ? Better handling in game? Looking forward to 16gb for sure. Any différence between ballistix and fury ?

Start with a B150 & SSD so you can upgrade to I5 & 1060 later.

I've seen your difference link. Very interesting for true. I could invest more in that MOBO but will i see these features in my casual session on pc? The thing i notice is that is more ports for usb , did i misunderstood all this?

What do you think of this?

I changed the 16 GB to 8GB for more money. I changed the 110 for the B150.

I changed the tower for an MicroAtx as recommend by @Outside-the-Box

I've looked on Net, Micro atx seems to have less features and are harder to build, what do you think of this? Can i fix or switch the Micro Atx piece for Atx which is more common? I am not sure that i will carry my computer tower somewhere but would i take this in consideration?

There shouldn't be too much of a difference between building an mATX and an ATX build. ATX Boards will including more hardware slots, but you shouldn't need one unless you have to add a soundcard, another videocard, or other. mATX should be fine and a nice middle ground.

Switched the Ram instead of 1x8, i go to 2x4. I heard this is better for dual channel? Similar price

Shouldn't be too much of a difference, just place them in opposite channels (not right next to each other.)

Also, I think this power supply is more reliable. That or the CXM 450 (NOT the CX Series)
