Gave you a better PSU

The Corsair CXM series comes nowhere near the EVGA G2 he had originally.

G2 SuperNOVA is vastly superior.

The speed differences between modern SATA SSDs from notable manufacturers isn't noticeable. Save money by getting one from PNY.

Only suggestions i have are to go with a Z270 board maybe since you've already got a Kaby Lake Chip, Faster Ram (not necessary but 3000+ wouldn't hurt) and maybe a non Blower Style Gpu, there are some nice white and black 1080's, otherwise looks alright.

I agree

Changes:

  • Better CPU Cooler so you can overclock a lot higher.

  • Upgraded to a Z270 motherboard so it supports your Kabylake i7 out of the box.

  • Faster & cheaper RAM.

  • Swapped to Crucial MX300 275GB SSD, more storage and same price.

  • Changed WiFi adapter to Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I, a great adapter and cheaper than the one you picked originally.

I think he selected those parts for the white. It's important for the parts to be white for him as he said in his comment although I suggest the new wifi too
