Saw this build a few days ago and it looked pretty solid, so I wanted to make something very comparable to it. My intent was to save some money while being able to match, or even better, OUTPERFORM. I wanted to use the same processor rather than the Ryzen 5 1500X to keep them closer.
I would use either the EVGA, MSI, or PNY 6GB GTX 1060. As they all have very similar performance, cost would be the deciding factor.
Went with a Patriot signature DDR4-2400, as it's a basic no frills ram that works.
Went with the 1 TB seagate, but could spend $10 more and get a 2 TB.
For the case I chose a simple one. I'm not the type to have the PC out in the open, so I don't care for fancy cases. I want to be able to have a functional case with good airflow and room for and extra fan. I figure Manirelli went with the modular PSU for better cable management, but that wasn't an issue for me. The power supply is "Corsair - CSM 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply", alternatively you could go with "EVGA - 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply."
As this would be based off of a fresh build, I included a new copy of Win 10 OS, as many builds do not include it. Without the OS, this would be priced $750. A new OS with Manirelli's build would make it about $900. You could include the SSD and this build would still cost less.
Originally I cut out the SSD, but if I wanted it I would recommend the PNY - CS1311 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive. A 120 GB SSD for $50 seems like a good deal to me.
Did not include mouse, speakers, or keyboard, as those are usually already owned.
The prices for some of these items may change, but I feel like I was successful in making a very good build for under $900, with nearly everything included.
