Way too much for that cooler. Too much for that SSD. Too much for that case. Too much for that PSU. WAY too much for that keyboard since its not even mechanical. Too much for that HDD. Too much for that wifi adapter. Why so many parts from amazon for a premium?

I compared it to the cheapest prices from each site and there was a $15 difference. I just wanted to get all the parts from the same site, and I like Amazon because I have prime and it will all come in 2 days.

There is a lot more than a $15 difference. There is a $10 difference for the HDD. $20 for the PSU. About $10 for the wifi adapter. About $10 for the CPU cooler compared to similar offerings. About $10 for the SSD. $10 for the motherboard. about $20 for the OS. That is about $90 in total that you are paying extra for. Is $90 worth making ordering parts easier? Plus not everything is from Amazon so you would still have to wait.

Are you looking at the prime prices? The total is $2006 for me. The HHD for example for me is a $1 difference.

I was looking at the prices on PCPP, not the ones on Amazon. Didn't bother to check that but upon checking it appears that you are correct with the ~$15 difference. What is your budget for the build? Its hard telling due to the prices from Amazon not being accurate.

Well when I started thinking about making a build, I was aiming for around $1500. But I don't really have a budget limit because I'm moving soon, and my parents are letting me completely redesign my room. Included with the new furniture and stuff was a gaming PC, and because I'm not getting a ton of new furniture, I thought I would move more of that money towards a really nice PC.
