I'm going to buy a new PC and i made this configuration, what do you think about it?

-Intel i7 6700
-MSI B150 Bazooka
-MSI GeForce GTX 1070 ARMOR 8G OC
-Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB 2133MHz CL14
-Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
-Cooler Master Hyper 212X
-Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM
-EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550W 80Plus Gold
-Fractal Design Define S


I'm not going to perform overclocking. Use of the PC will be games, 3D and video edit at medium level, movies and so on...
Would you make some change without increasing the price?

Thank you!

If you won't be overclocking, then you don't need aftermarket cooling.

 

You also don't need such a high-end PSU, but the price on the 550W G2 is usually quite good anyway.



Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.

I'd opt for a z170 motherboard and some faster memory. Trade out the msi card for the EVGA 1070SC? I even saw a gaming x today for $340?

Might increase price but depends where you live and retailers you are buying from.

Aftermarket cooler is fine.Stay cool and quiet!

Why get a Z170 motherboard if overclocking isn't a consideration?

An aftermarket cooler is a must it helps bring the noise down and the one he has chosen isn't expensive either. There's no reason what so ever to use a ****ty noisy stock cooler, let alone for a new build.

Your choice of components are nicely balanced overall.

Well, when someone says "what changes would you make without increasing the price", I'd say that COST is a pretty good reason. Yet, here we are making recommendations that would increase the price. Facepalm.

Yeah cost is a good reason but sticking to the aftermarket cooler doesn't increase the cost and you know as well as I do that after a while that damn stock cooler will drive him crazy to the point of him ordering one anyway at which point he has to pay shipping for an item he could (should imo) have included in the first place.

But I see your point though of keeping the cost down.

Recommending a Z170 motherboard will increase the cost, and so does recommending faster memory. So, eliminating the aftermarket cooling will really be a big help.

Yeah that's a fair point but neither you or I made that recommendation. biggrin.gif
