ok so what you can do is make a windows 10 usb with microsoft's media creation tool (https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10) and then just skip the part where it asks you for your product key. It is the same as windows 10 except you can't change your wallpaper and use some of customizing features such as changing your lock screen, also there is a activate windows watermark in the bottom right of your screen. I would highly recommend this until you save up to purchase a copy of windows. Also if/when you do, you can just enter the product key from within windows and it will unlock all the features t you couldn't use before (also removes the watermark). Plus since I fit the SSD in, you will have really fast load times

Yeah building a pc is definitely a fun experience. And to GFTG2000. I bought a $700 "gaming" laptop a couple years ago from best buy. I was disappointed although it could play minecraft well (lenovo flex). Than last year i thought i knew my stuff and bought a $500 "gaming" desktop. Radeon hd 6870 + i5 750 + 16gb ram. Now since I finally half know what im doing i have a good quality PC that I am happy with. (although if I waited like 3 months I couldve got ryzen which is much better than my i3...)

But lets say he wants to sell his SSD. Most people don't have an m.2 slot and most people put their SSD's into their laptops. Plus one or two extra cables is not a hassle

im just saying that he is better off going with a regular 2.5" sata ssd rather than an m.2 non NVME because there will be no speed difference. The 2.5" is more compatible and cheaper so it is better

TBH crossfiring isn't the best idea as most games don't support it and it is just a hassle. I would just use the 8gb card and sell the 4gb and use the money to buy some games or something else for your pc. But if you must than what will happen is your primary card will be the VRAM that you use. So if your primary is the 8gb, than you i will have 8gb of VRAM.

Hope this helped :D

Assuming you are talking about coffeelake (releases in Q4 or sometime next year) and not Skylake-X (releases sometime this summer). Then no you will not have to get a new mobo with Coffeelake. If you will primarily be gaming than you could just get Kaby Lake now as their won't be much of an improvment. But Coffeelake is rumored to have a 6 core 12 thread CPU so i may wait for that if you will be doing anything other than gaming. Also depending on your budget, you could take a look at ryzen or skylake-x if you will be doing any sort of productivity work. But if you already have an LGA1151 mobo, than you won't be able to use either of those

not worth the extra $ for the m.2 variant of the MX300 as it is not NVME. Maybe try a 960 evo instead

AMD Freesync is for you gpu. It basically tries to eliminate tearing in your games by synchronizing the frame rate of your game with your monitors refresh rate. If you will primarily be gaming, i would say take a look at the 7600k (for overclock ability), or the 7500/7600 if you don't plan on overclocking. If you want to overclock you will need a z270 motherboard, these usually cost upwards of 80ish USD (which i am assuming is the currency that you will be using). Also motherboards can only support certain cpus, for intel the newest consumer grade socket type would be the LGA1151. For AMD Ryzen (which i would recommend if you will also be video editing or doing any sort of productivity work) the current socket type is AM4. For your GPU since you already have a freesync monitor I would recommend the RX 580. It can handle pretty much any game at 60 fps on Ultra at 1080p, and can handle most games at 60fps medium-high at 1440p (but you already have a 1080p monitor). I hope this helps you out with your selection of parts.

freesync/g sync for tearing. 1440p 144hz or a 4k 60hz. And IMO you should wait till vega before you build anything. If you will only be gaming then go with a 7700k. If you are also doing content creation then go with Ryzen 7 or wait till Skylake-X.

Yeah. im planning on buying a new laptop in the near future (im in grade 8). My current one is a lenovo flex (idk which model) and has an amd a6 apu. It works but i maybe want a chromebook because most of what i do is google drive and internet browsing. (I also have a gaming pc that i use for editing and more intensive homework like movies and big projects and stuff, oh and of course gaming).
