Here's the link to the case on Amazon, I'd highly recommend it at its price. Just temporarily out of stock, it'll come back on.

All I'd recommend is the i5-7500 instead of the Skylake build for $7 more. (I assume that you meant to put that in.)

Oh yes I did mean to put the i5 7500. My mistake

Not trying to be rude or anything, just honestly trying to help. I would suggest staying back from recommending parts for a bit and learning more about parts, asking questions, and how to chose them given that you just joined the site and seem new at picking parts.

This thread has a ton of info. My profile also has some. Also ask all of the questions you want, we won't bite.

but why would he be on this site if he didn't need help though like that thread helps people know about computers and waht to do why would he make a post asking for help than. Yes I also get it if he just wants to make sure it is all good even if he knows things about computer just my opionion

??? I'm not referring to the OP, I'm referring to the person who posted that build along with a few other less than optimal builds for people.

The unlocked i3, at 4.8Ghz its at best on par with a i5 7500 and will often lose to it while costing more.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqihmsDj9Uo

It has the i5 6600K which has the same turbo speed as the i5 7500 and only a .1Ghz faster base clock speed while the i5 7500 has a tiny better higher IPC and they are based on the same architecture so its quite a good comparison since they will get basically identical performance.

If it was ~$140 or so it wouldn't be a terrible choice but at its current price it is just a bad choice unless all you play are old games that don't use more than 2 cores threads. Also keep in mind you might not even be able to reach 4.8Ghz due to the cooler not being capable of handling the heat, there is no guarantee when it comes to overclocking.

vs.

~$311 with the same board but you can easily save money there since you don't need a Z270 board.

This which still has a decent board, you just can't overclock. If you really wanted to save even money you could cut back a bit and get something like this.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/QXdFf7/asrock-b250m-pro4-micro-atx-lga1151-motherboard-b250m-pro4

That would bring the total savings to about $50 while getting equal or better performance. That is why its a bad choice.

Also with the money saved you could get even a better CPU than the i5 7500 and it would still come out cheaper.

Is there even a point in getting an unlocked i3?

No, it will be out done by a i5 7500 which will be cheaper.
