That's a SATA-based SSD, which gives no noticeable speed boost over a 2.5" drive. NVMe drives are a different story, but the MX300 isn't going to give you a boost for the price. Also, a 550W PSU won't be enough for future SLI.

Oh didn't see that, oops

That's a SATA-based SSD, which gives no noticeable speed boost over a 2.5" drive

Then why are they more expensive than 2.5" drives?

??????? SATA is a connection interface and the size is a form factor. Size has nothing to do with performance.

Oh, I guess I leapt in logic there in that wording.

A SATA-based M.2 drive gives no noticeable speed boost over a SATA-based 2.5" drive.

A little over. You could try make some cutbacks.

You can also save $80 on the motherboard and RAM and fit the unlocked + great HSF cooler in. Also, got an IPS monitor for cheaper. (The rating is just one guy with a dead pixel, which is shipping damage.)

Well, freesync doesn't matter if you're not using it. If a more expensive monitor had G-sync, it would be a different story. IPS is definitely worth it though.

Ooh, didn't even notice the color scheme. I'd argue that the unlocked processor is worth it to sacrifice the aesthetic to a black/red, but that's obviously a personal choice.

60 hz monitor is not for hardcore gamers
