$1k Budget Skylake Build - Purchasing Soon

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I plan on purchasing within the next few days.

I recently made a post in the AMD build log for a $1k system that includes a new monitor and gaming keyboard. I've decided it makes no sense to spend $1k on soon to be outdated architecture when the 1151 was just released. With that being said, I'm reusing my monitor and keyboard to save money yet keeping the budget at $1k. This is what I've come up with:

Case - NXZT S340 Matte Black/Red
HDD - WD Blue 1TB
SSD - OCZ ARC 100
PSU - Cooler Master V550
RAM - G. SKILL Ripjaws V Series DDR4 3000
MB - Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 3
CPU - 6600k
CPU Cooler - Hyper 212 EVO
GPU - MSI 390

$1,131.91 Subtotal

$7.11 Shipping

$1,139.02 Total

$75.00 MIR

$1,064.02 After MIR

Please feel free to leave any suggestions!

I would like to see you invest in a better PSU. The CX series isn't exactly a good investment for a nice system like this. For example, you could get the Cooler Master V550 for $49.99 after a $30 mail-in rebate: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-power-supply-rs550amaag1s1

This while time I thought something like that belonged in the Build Logs Lol. Thanks for clarifying! thumb.gif
Would 550W be enough power for this build though? I know the 390 is power hungry.

It's fine, I doubt the system will use more than 450 watts.

I would swap the Kingston SSD out for a Crucial MX100 or Samsung 850EVO due to kingston switching to slower NAND's for later versions and that show performance defecit

Does this mean leave the CX600M? After rebate the Cooler Master V550 is only $5 more so if it's a better route I don't mind.
What about a RM650?

So the BX100 is $69.99 for 120GB while the OCZ ARC 100 is $59.99 for 240GB after mail in rebate. The write speed is significantly higher on the ARC 100 vs BX100 and it's cheaper than the Samsung EVO. Would this be a solid choice?

Would it be better to go with a H100i GTX that's $25 more than the Noctua?
At 1080p gaming the 290X would be equal to a 390? What's the reason to recommend the 290X over the newer 390? Wouldn't the difference in memory allow the 390 to best the 290X?

Thanks!

I always recommend high end air over an AIO; same (+/- 5%) cooling, quieter fans, no chance for pump failure, cheaper.

The PCS 290x has one of the best cooling solutions and is cheaper; you aren't going to ever utilize the 8GB of VRAM and the Powercolor will OC strongly as well.

So far I've changed the RAM to the G.Skill, GPU to a 290X, and the SSD to a OCZ ARC 100. I'm still up in the air about the PSU, is the V550 enough or should I make the stretch to the RM650?

That makes sense. Is the temperature differences between a Hyper 212 worth the extra cost? I don't think I'll be overclocking till the CPU is showing signs of struggling with FPS in a game.

I've switched to the PCS 290X.
