The CPU is a terrible choice. The case fans are crap and aren't needed. Too much for that case. You don't need a fan controller. Get a cheaper monitor. Do you really need a pro copy of WIndows. Get a cheaper headset. You don't need 16GB of RAM. That PSU likely isn't good. Its very messy build.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
It has a much much better CPU, a SSD, a much better case, a much better GPU, a much better PSU, and it costs about the same. I downgraded the keyboard, i went with the keyboard over the mouse since the mouse is more imporant than the keyboard for a gaming build. I also downgraded the heatset. I ditched the Pro copy of Windows since its pointless for a just gaming build and I'm doubting you would use anything extra it offers.
http://pcpartpicker.com/list/KYVFKZ this is all the changes ive made, the headset and mouse are still there along with the fans so ignore those
The case fans aren't good and are pointless since they won't help any, you don't need a fan controller and they are pretty much pointless anymore, the PSU isn't good, the case is of bad value, you don't need a pro copy of Windows, DRR3 RAM will damage the CPU and cause it to die at some point, you have a locked CPU with a not so cheap Z170 board. 16GB of RAM isn't a must have. What is your real budget? Do you want to overclock?
budget is about 1400
i already switched to home
get 8g of ram?
http://pcpartpicker.com/list/r7rMTH hows this
Still have the pointless pro copy of Windows, the CPU, motherboard, and RAM issue and the PSU issue still. Do you want to overclock?
if you have any recommended changes do tell
dont go for peripherals that are high end yet tbh. focus more on the parts and get a keyboard mouse combo so more money can go towards parts.
okay thanks, any recommendations?
Cooler Master Devastator II Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse its loud to type with but it works and its cheap. this way you can focus on parts and then save up for keyboard and mouse after you get your build
Do you need windows pro
You have windows 10 pro do you need that
i use 10 home
Yea you only need pro if your a company
oh okay, thanks
also just an fyi i use AMD cpu as well and they run somewhat hot.
so should i change or will my cpu fan help wit that
tbh i would go with intel now because they are about same amount for better
i only went with AMD because im getting a water cooler so i can slight OC.
actually thats better than the intels on partpicker for that price
it depends on how much you are looking to spend
yeah, i try to go in to change it and it only shows me AMD's, is that a compatibility issue
yes you need to change your motherboard and other components
thats because the motherboard is an AM3+
intel takes a different socket
this isn't mine but its a really good build
You forgot the headset, OS, keyobard, and mouse....
A few things I would change.
1. Intel i5-6400 or above (you will have to change mobo as well)
2. GTX 1050ti, 1060 3gb or 1060 6gb. If you can afford the 1060 6gb will be very good.
3. Cheaper peripherals, put more towards the other parts.
no problem :)
FYI you can buy windows 10 cd keys all over for 15$ you do take the slight chance of getting scammed but I've done it and I still use it to this day.
