What do you think?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Thinking about ordering and building this shortly.

Will use it for a wide range of games from old games to new games like Witcher 3 and Fallout 4.

Done some reasearch but really not sure if I made any mistakes since it been forever since Ive built a computer. I want to stay near the price point of $2000 but up or down a 100-200 wont ruin it anything. Let me know if you have an advice or input on it. Reason for bigger PSU was where I could add Sli later on or upgrades down the road. Also would love advice on what fans to get for this case slots.

PS: Kind of figured I would stay with red and black colors but not to set here either mainly wanting good performance

Solid build, though that motherboard is super overkill and no worth it at ALL, my Z170 deluxe is more feature packed and its 60 bucks cheaper, but you want to keep with red and black so look into the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO ALPHA, its about 280$ but there is a 30$ rebate on it too, and it has built in wifi so you can take off the wifi card you have listed too, and i'd use that extra money to put 32gb of ram on over 16, that would be a much better evening out of the parts imo. and you'd probably be saving a bit in the process. hope this helps.

I was thinking the motherboard was a little over kill just so many people seemed to think highly of it and I wasn't really sure which to go with so many options available in the red and black scheme

It might be my mistake but that's no where close to a 2k build. The 1080 doesn't have a price in the total thus it's about 700 bucks over budget.

Thats fine. I didnt notice that but Im set on that card or one of the other 1080s. And I wondered why the math seemed low to me

I personally cant access PcPartPicker.com so i wasnt sure why the 1080 wasnt listed but i cant check lol. I'd look into the board i listed above to help save some money, i know you have a price point of 2000 with some leeway but with that 1080 not listed that 600+ that isnt being registered, so look to save on the board, and do you need a 1tb ssd? i have a 480gb and personally its not even half full and ive quite a few steam games on it. if you need the extra maybe a 480/512 and a 1tb hard drive? just trying to think of ways to help the cost. You could also go for cheaper windows keys, but idk if its allowed here, last time i gave someone the website it was on PcPartPicker and i got insta banned for it... ( they are the worst run website on earth imo ) But, its Kinguin, just type it into google. ( if its not allowed here please just tell me and i'll remove it, sick of people acting as if its the black plague tbh ) but that will save you alot, its about 28$ for a windows 10 key right now with the warranty option.
