So after researching a good part of 4 months about which parts to buy and where to buy from i finally decided i would build a PC within 700 to 800 USD budget range including the monitor. I started scouting for prices online and checking out the local Micro center 50 miles away ( thank god for Micro center !!!) and decided Micro Center offered way better deals on CPU and GPU's. I am not a regular gamer but would like to try some new games like CS go, GTA 5 and FIFA 17 to start with. The prices here are more or less close to what i got.
i3 6100 - 109.99 AS Rock Z170m Pro4 Motherboard for 79.99 ( bundling the CPU reduced 30$ and will take off another 20 when i mail in the rebate) Zotac Gtx 1060 Mini 6gb for 239.99 ( cant beat these prices and its 6GB !!!) Crucial Ballistix Sport 2 x 8gb for 64.99 Crucial Mx300 275gb SSD for 64.99 EVGA 500B powersupply ( non modular ) for 62.99 ( 15 usd rebate to be maild yet. Newegg has bettter prices might go to micro center to see if they can match the pricing ) Thermal take Versa H22 case for 37.99 ( was the cheapest ATX mid tower i could get . Thermaltake v3 was on sale for 22.99 including the rebate but the case itself was very bad and didn't have USB3.0 and I didn't like it ) ACER S230HL ABD 23 inch 1080p monitor was on sale for 79.99 ( sweet!!!)
total price - approx 785 USD 750 ish USD after rebates.
very happy with the build.
Might exchange the I3 for an i5 6500 for 70 bucks extra ( let me know guys am not sure if it s a good investment !!!) The case came with only 3 mounting screws for the motherboard . i don't know if it is standard but my motherboard has close to 9 screw holes. also there were only 3 fan headers and my case had 4 fans so have to shop for fan splitter
I bought this case for my budget build.
Really good case for the price. Decent enough space for cable management. USB 3.0 and 2.0 port at the front 4 case fans included !!!
User Manual was useless and had wrong info in some places. Had to figure out a lot on my own.
