Now for the baby itself, my main purpose is to be able to play games at Full HD and to do my finance work. I aim to get the most value out of every part. After continuously bugging those experts above and some research of my own, I am very happy with this build. As this is my 1st time building a PC by myself, it took me 2 days to put the parts together and another 2 to set it up. I would love to share with you all some experience I pick up along the way.

That's it guys, I hope you are satisfied and happy with building your own case. One last advice for newbies like me is just ask for help, the good people on here are so selfless and happy to help you.

If you don't have special needs, i5 is the way to go. I got this one because it was actually cheaper than the i5-6500, if that is not the case for you then you should go with i5-6500.
It was $50 for me and it does the job brilliantly. The MSI version was around the same price but the Internet says Asus' quality is better so. One thing though is that it does not support Win 7 installation USB. I think it is a problem for Asus boards.
Cheapest for me, even cheaper than the 2600mhz and co.
Cheaper than Crucial MX300 for me so I went with it.
I know they are not of great quality but they've done their jobs for about 5 years now and I always back up important stuff to the cloud.
This is physically flawed after about 6 months or so (I cant remember) but after doing extensive check disks and the likes (basically isolated the bad sectors), it is still alive and kicking for 6 years now. Of course I don't store important stuff here.
GTX 1060 is all you need to play games at Full HD. All GTX 1060 GPUs are pretty much the same, go with the cheapest and highest review. My room temperature is 32"C and its idle temp is 37"C and running Witcher 3 or MGSV at high and 1080p it goes up to 43"C. I think it achieves quite good temps under load.
Now this was a very hard decision mainly because there are so many out there and not that much info. This case is huge and heavy and of brilliant quality. It got great praises throughout the web so you cannot do wrong going with it. It comes with a fanhub and this confuses a lot of people. Although the instruction is to put the fanhub into CPU_FAN slot on the board, just put it into CHA_FAN slot and you're fine.
This is a decent one for its price, not the highest quality out there. One thing I want to note is its 24-pin connector is so hard to push all the way into the board, like impossibly hard. I read around and this happens with Cosair PSUs.
The case is naturally creating a negative "pressure" environment which pulls dust into the case so I add another fan on top of the case for exhaust. This fan is cheap and highly reviewed.
