Good job and have fun with your new computer :)
You did great :) Congrats on your first build.
Your cable management is amazing. When I was trying to fix up my dads old computer his IDE cables were a giant birds nest, but somehow you made them look great in this build :)
Nice build. Everything looks great and your part choices are well balanced :) +1
Good part choices :) It's a clean and simple build, but it has all of the right parts.
Good find with that GPU. Looks like you have a decent mid-range gaming computer on your hands now +1
Looks like a solid budget / mid range build +1
Nice case mod :) It turned out great +1
This build looks great :) Looks like you put some thought and time into this build.
Nice custom case.
Nice build. It looks great, nice colors and no over the top RGB. Good job on your part choices +1
I'm not trying to criticize, but the money you used for the GPU could have gone for a gtx 1060 3gb or a rx 480. http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-960-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1060-3GB/3165vs3646 Best of luck with your new PC and good work on your build.
Looks great +1 Looks like you got some good deals on your parts.
His part choices actually aren't that bad.
Nice mITX build. The case and gpu match your color theme perfectly! +1
Nice build. Thanks for taking the time to put the actual prices in +1
Nice build. It looks clean and follows a simple color scheme +1.
If you are after fast memory (as the OP states) a standard hdd would not be your first choice.
You might want to change the cpu cooler. If you are throwing that much money into a z370 mobo and that cpu, you would probably want to be able to have the option to over clock. A bigger air cooler, aio, or water cooling would be a better choice.
Not a huge fan of amd I see :p Look up some benchmarks before making comments like this. http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1070-vs-AMD-RX-Vega-64/3609vs3933
You did good to pick up a gtx 970 for $100, nice find!
The general idea is to be constructive with your criticism :P Just say "this stinks" does nothing to help or critique the OP.
Can't argue with that. The gtx 1050ti was about $200 in my area and the 1060 3gb was about just $30-$50 USD more that that :p Makes sense in that case to jump up a level.
I would agree. A better cpu would make more sense for the suggested workload, and a gtx 1060 is probably overkill for a budget video editing computer.
Looks like it is about time for an upgrade :) you might need to upgrade the cpu as well if you plan on playing any newer cpu heavy games.
A gtx 970 would be better than a 1050 or 1050 ti but not the gtx 1060.
Yeah the only thing that makes it worth it is if you already live next to one and they are having a sale.
I can vouch for the wireless adapter as well :) You can pick one up for a decent price and it works well.
I personally find micro-center a bit pushy, but best buy and most other tech stores are just as bad. I wish they would just let people browse. If someone needs help they will find an employee and ask :p And no I do not want a 5 yr replacement plan for $50!
Nice upgrade in both aesthetics and performance +1
Nice build. You have yourself a good budget build :) And like you said, if you want to upgrade it won't take much to upgrade in the future +1
Nice build! Your part prices always amaze me, and make me a wee bit jealous. Also for a budget type build this looks great +1
Nice build :) Everything looks great. I wouldn't worry about about the RAM if you are just gaming. 8 gb should keep you gaming strong for a while.
No problem. Hopefully you are able to snag your self a nice card as prices come down.
Yep, I hope so too. I have a gtx 980 that I hope to get at least 2 yrs out of yet :p
Cool stuff :) An "older" but definitely capable build +1
You did good for that budget +1 A gtx 980 ti is still quite a capable card.
You might want to pop that GPU out. The integrated graphics are a touch better than the graphics card. http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GeForce-GT-730-vs-Intel-HD-630-Desktop-Kaby-Lake/m12582vsm178724 Nice build otherwise +1
Thanks, I thought so as well :) If the gtx 1060s were at or below MRSP if would be a easy choice, but prices for the gtx 1060 still remain fairly high. At least every time I looked into it.
Youtube tutorials are great. A Paul's Hardware building tutorial got me though my first build :) Everything looks good on your new build - Good job +1
Yeah I got caught in that predicament on my personal rig. I had a g4560 and wanted to upgrade. I wanted to buy a new 8th gen CPU, but only had a b250 mobo -_- I ended up going with a 7th gen i5 7600K. But only because of the stupid mobo.
Yeah a gtx 1060 is a good pick. I picked up a refurbished gtx 980 for $240 and that has worked well for me. I got tired of watching and waiting for a gtx 1060 to drop below $250. His current rig is a nice build you should have no problem getting some decent $ for it.
Doubt that is the price he payed. He didn't put in the price he payed so PCPP just picks the cheapest one available at this time. Not sure why amazon thinks that this hhd is worth $175 right now :P
This is an amazing build for $250! A rx 470 for $150! Considering the fact that most people are buying a 1050 ti for over $160 you got a great deal. PS. You are getting close to 100 builds. You should do something special for your 100th build :)
If someone admits their mistake there is no need to point it out and call them out on it, just saying....
Looks good. I can't see any glaring issues. Any questions I had about your build were explained by your description. You have everything you need and you are all set to game :)
Great build with a good upgrade path if you wish to do so +1 Looks like you did some research for your first build, and it payed off :)
I like how everything looks with your competed build. The newer cases from NZXT have a nice "modern" look to them. My only beef is that that they exclude a CD tray, but that seems to be on its way out.
You should be able to sell off the R9 280 without any problems. Used and new prices are so high right now with similar performance cards like the gtx 1050ti or rx 460 or 470. Sucks that you do so to upgrade though :(
I wish Intel would keep the same mobo socket for more than 1-2yrs :P It would make life easier for everyone. I know improvements have to be made and aging parts have to be upgraded, but I feel like they would be able to do it if they tried. It seems like AMD figured out a way.
