I am looking at building a new desktop semi gaming PC in December.
I am calling it my Christmas Bender Build due to the fact I am driving to NY in early Dec. and staying in Syracuse for a little over a week with a buddy of mine.
We are pretty much going to drink beer, make beer and make food the entire week. We are both also planning on building new PC's.
I have spent a couple weeks building and adding parts to my PCPartPicker page.
I think I got it about where I want it. Feel free to take a look at the Link:
I did not add a PSU. I currently have a new PSU: Corsair RM or RX 850 something like that.
I am likely going to get Windows 10 H USB if I have to buy it. If I can get it free through College then I will go that route.
The 3 Green Fans.. 1x Rear 2x Top for the case in the build. I am planning on getting 3 of the 120MM Corsair SP fancy fans with the RGB mode for the front.
I went with the 2x Samsung 850 EVO SSD's. I was planning on running them in a Raid 0.
Samsung 950 Pro M.2
What am I looking for?
I am just tossing it out here for opinions. Any ways to make it cheaper?
I was considering going to the i5-6600K since I think gaming performance wise it's not really that far away from the i7-6700K. I think some people say it is not worth the extra $100 but some other people are like the extra $100 is just a drop in a bucket for sorta future proofing.
I was originally going with the MSI Nvidia 1080 Gaming X8 but since I am not running 4K and probably wont for a few years. I decided to save around $200 and stick with the 1070.
What are your thoughts and opinions on the build? What could I do better?
