Onboard LAN on the motherboard. Connect one end of an ethernet cable to the motherboard and the other to your router/modem.
Thank you! :)
Thanks! Yeah the mobo's lights are customizable too. Easy to work with. Would recommend/10.
Thanks! Yes, I kinda tried picking parts which could potentially be overclocked, but I haven't looked into them yet, and I was not sure if the parts I had were ready to overclocked - that wasn't my no. 1 priority. But I'll look into that more now, and if it's possible I'd def want to try that out too!!
I bought the DeepCool RGB350 Color LED Strips off of Amazon for the lights. It's pretty decent for the price, does it's job. I was looking for something that I did not have to glue in, because I wasn't sure where I'd want to place the strips, the magnets on this fit my needs well. It does have the receiver sticking out (like in the 5th pic, next to the SSD) and it's something I could not fix, and then there's the wire that you can see coming out of the grommet cut-out for one of the strips, couldn't figure out any other way to get that strip there. But they don't stick out at you since they kinda blend in so it did not bother me a lot.
Haha that is unfortunate! j/k
Thanks for this setup and your help!
did a few changes based on some other recos and updated prices for stuff that weren't updated.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
oh no, lol. $700 for everything except the processor.
Oh yeah I just saw only one $15 rebate applied to it.
The RX580 8Gb would end up being around $250, and the 1060 6GB is at around 205$. I did not think that the performance difference warranted the price difference. What do you think? Thanks.
Thanks!! The GPU for $205 is great!
What I'm trying to build is everything except the processor for less than $700. If I max the rest of them out at 700, I can get the processor for like 175$ (7700k) and that would bring it all to around $875. I should have probably made that clear in my OP, but i said $1000 over there because if I got the processor at full price, $1000 is what I'd be looking at to spend.
Yes, I'm getting the 7700k for lesser than what the Ryzen 5 1600 would cost me.
Sweet! This does look good, the monitor yeah, i could use the 21.5" if that would save me some $$.
Had a question about the choice of motherboard and case. In my initial config, I chose the B350 ATX and an ATX mid tower case. You've chosen a micro ATX motherboard and case that comes upto around $7 cheaper than the ATX. Any particular reason for your picks? Wouldn't the ATX build give me more room for expansion in the future or am i missing something?
Thanks for taking the time to help me out!!
Thanks, but this list does not have a monitor.
Also, do I have to go with the GTX 1060? Won't a GTX1050 Ti be sufficient for what I need? It'd be great if you could tell me why you chose that part. Thank you!!
