Let me know what you think. Thanks!
Next time use the correct forum but here ya go. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Changed the mobo color to black and rgb as it was cheaper. Also I changed the cpu as a 2700x and a 580 doesn't make a great combo and included a cpu cooler as the stock is ok at best.
You know what, now I understand the other comment. I must have clicked on the wrong tab when I put this up. My bad lol.
Why don't they make a great combo if you don't mind me asking?
The 2700x is a good cpu don't get me wrong, but that is aimed more towards the higher end of mid to low high tier cpu's. The 580 is also a great gpu but pairing it with a 2700x isn't a good idea as there might be a bottle neck if not any. But pairing it with a 2600x is a good mid tier cpu that will get anything done that you need to do. But if you were 100% on the 2700x you should also upgrade your gpu to a 2070 or even a 2060 to have a better pair and get the most out of the 2700x.
