So I recently came to a decision that it was time to just build a desktop after gaming for so long on my school laptop. Just a little disclaimer, but I have little to no experience what-so-ever when it comes to building a pc. Originally I wasn't planning on spending as much as this, but I figured that the computer would be good to me for the next 3-4 years. As far as this build goes, I based it off the manirelli's "Excellent Build" and added a bit of a touch to it. And as far as what I'm planning on doing with the computer, I plan on gaming heavily on this pc as well as recording or streaming gameplay. So if you could, please let me know what you think. I'm struggling with whether or not I need that much power for my power supply as well as whether or not my motherboard of choice was the best I could get for the $150 dollar price range.
Edit: Also what do you guys think about Gigabyte's G1 1070 vs EVGA's SC version? A lot of what I've found with the cards is that Gigabyte's 1070 tends to almost outperform its other counterparts, even if it is just by a little. And when it comes to cooling, I read that the Gigabyte's version with its 3 fans almost perform better. However, I find EVGA's version a lot more visually appealing especially with my build so far.
