This is a beautiful work of modern art! This is what I would imagine my dream build would look like! Can't get enough!
The pictures are there, they are quite grainy
Can we get more pictures?
Sleek and simple, love it!
Congrats on the feature!
Never thought this colour scheme could look this good! Very Clean! +1
That's what I want to avoid, Could I split the CPU fan header and run one off of that?
Would there be a problem with running 3 fans off of one header? I only want to spend the extra money on a fan controller if I have to.
now why didnt i think of that
Purple?! I was going to do purple!
use the i5-6400 and the RX 480, the FX cpu line is trash for gaming.
Actually here's a nice MOBO: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/QZJkcf/gigabyte-ga-z170x-ud3-ultra-atx-lga1151-motherboard-ga-z170x-ud3-ultra
If you want it blue, build your pc black and or white then add blue LEDs.
It looks good, my only suggestion is to switch to a 2x8 gb kit of ram. At this price point you should have 16 gb.
This Won't get you much better gaming performance but it will give a better priced, still fast SSD along with a large extra storage drive.

The 1070 should do just fine
The build looks quite solid, but if you were willing to spend a bit more you could switch to a 1080, but I'm guessing you already considered this.
unless you have headphones that cost a couple hundred dollars, there isn't much point in getting a sound card. The stock CPU cooler should do just fine.
Since the Motherboard only has 2 ram slots, it would be wise to leave it with a single 8 gb stick so you have the option to add more later.
Unless you care about aesthetics that looks quite good!
lol, I've been following you around for a bit, but I guess I finally caught up!
Something like this will probably do a bit better.
Everything here does look quite solid!
The 1060 performs fairly similarly to the r9 390 at half the power consumption.
The 8370 has 8 cores, the 6500 has 4 cores, most games can only use 4 cores therefore the extra 4 cores are useless. when it comes to quadcore games the 6500 will outperform, again at half the power consumption.
Some one correct me if my logic is messed.
At that price point you could do better with something like this.
I agree with commodore64. Unless you want to spend more, the 1070 is all you need. Though imo, if you're sticking with 16 Gb of RAM, go with a 2x8 Gb kit so you have the option to add more later.
If as you said there is a son obsessed with photography, a little extra storage would probably be appreciated.
Looks good! This is just mostly an aesthetic change but IMO that cooler is really good but also really ugly. Personally, I would either step it down and go with the Hyper 212 Evo, or step it up and go with an AIO liquid like the Kraken x61. Like I said, this is mostly just an aesthetic change, otherwise the system looks great!
Nice catch on the MOBO, can't believe I missed that. I am planning to overclock.
I was already considering waiting for the RX480, it seems that it's going to be an amazing value card!
Those PSUs, at the location I would buy them would cost a bit more, so for the price i think mine fits in just nice!
Does this look better?
how do you display the list like that?
do you need to use wifi or can you directly wire it?
Can you get your computer easily wired into the internet?
Do you need a wifi adapter? If possible it really helps to be directly wired.
What sort of games will you be playing?
Thanks for the heads up.
Got any advice with graphics card?
I use Malwarebytes and it works great!
So something like this: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/
would get a lot better performance?
I'm not to worried about the power supply.
Would it be worth while to go to a Pentium, then have the option to upgrade to an i5 later?
updated it any new pointers?
On FrostPirates changes, would the stock cpu cooler be enough for an overclocked i5? and would it be possible to get a lower cost psu?
What about the FX-8350
Im an intel fan but according to my benchmarks site i can get more performance for less with amd
