Went over by a bit to accommodate the unlocked i5, the 1070, and an IPS monitor that will actually take advantage of the budget. If you only want to play at 1080p, feel free to go back in budget with something like an AOC i2267Fw (Note: 144Hz IPS displays are stupidly expensive, so a 1440p60 panel is the only one that makes sense really.) that won't really take advantage of all the 1070 can do.

Unlocked Kaby Lake i5 under a Cryorig H7 on a great ASRock board, necessary RAM, boot/OS SSD and some mass storage, a great card in the 1070, and a nice deal on a case with a top-of-the-line power supply.

Great 1440p IPS display for the price, OS included.

I'm not comfortable with OC so I'm just gonna use the Intel turbo boost and I can turbo up to 4.2 GHz which is fine with me, so to save a couple bucks switch out the Mobo for a b250 chipset. And for ram it has to be dual channel or quad channel

I'd highly recommend changing out your CPU, then. There's absolutely no benefit to having a 7600K if you're not overclocking, so you should step down to one of the locked chips.

The i5-7500 is the best value chip, you won't notice the base clock difference with the i5-7600, although it does have a noticeably higher boost clock, and it still fits in your budget. Also, you then don't have to spend the extra on an aftermarket cooler, as the bundled stock cooler is perfectly adequate for cooling a locked chip.

Not sure why you're interested in dual channel, as the performance boost is negligible, but it can be thrown in.

Rate this build I'm not trying to get like 100fps on like 1440p on AAA games. I'm mainly gonna be playing games like Ark, H1Z1, some bf1 and maybe rainbow six siege

And it stayed $100 under budget

I'd highly recommend the RX 480 over the GTX 1060 in that price point, as it's showing better benchmarks after the release of the ReLive drivers, as well as the growing number of games being released that utilize DX12.

You don't need the H7 as your temps will already be fine, but if you really like the aesthetic, I'd recommend the C7 to save yourself a couple bucks.

The G2 is a far superior PSU to the NEX, check out JonnyGURU's reviews.

Updated your motherboard to an ATX form factor just so you don't have to worry about standoff placement during building.

The i2267Fw is $50 cheaper with a lot of the same specs, but if you need the inch, go for the i2367Fh.

Saved you $100 with the GPU upgrade and monitor change. With an extra $200 in the budget, you could still grab a 1070.

The reason I had the other monitor was mainly because it had HDMI and built in speakers, yes I know dvi supports 1920x1080

Also can you get an rx480 with a white/black theme backplate?

Since I prefer having a side windows I don't want the Intel stock cooler. I still want the 7600k though. Every time I say I don't want to OC people always come calling me stupid and everything. Accept it, I don't want to OC

Not OCing is completely fine, but if you buy a 7600K and don't overclock it, you'd be wasting your money. You'd save money and lose nothing by getting the 7600.

Fine, put a 7600
