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 :)

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.

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.

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.

Comment reply on KadiusFTW's Completed Build: Jack of all trades

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.

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 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.

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.

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 :)

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.
