The RAM is this build is very limiting as all of the new CPU's use DDR4, so replacing that would allow for a lot more options.

If your wondering about the CPU cooler clearance, I looked it up, and there is plenty of room in that case. just out of curiosity, what is this computer for? that CPU is pretty powerful compared to the GPU.

A case is just a place to mount your parts, screwing them to a piece of plywood would work just fine. Its just a matter of what you want in terms of looks and protection. I was thinking used parts when I picked the skylake mobo, now that the platform is two generations old (and as shreduhsoreus said, dead,) used skylake processors should only be getting cheaper.

CPU and GPU step up pretty neatly for $100 more each. GTX 1060 6GB is in the same range too, if you'd prefer NVidia. More RAM would be a good idea as well, 8gb isn't that much anymore.

Just a heads up: RAM type (DDR2-3-4 etc.) is bound to the processor and motherboard, so since you have a LGA775 in this build, any RAM you buy for it will also have to be DDR2. If you want DDR3 or 4 RAM, you'll have to upgrade the processor (and by extension, the motherboard.)

Out of curiosity, what were the parts you wanted to reuse from the computer? Other than the hard drive, that is.

Yea, coffee lake is coming out soon but that really only matters if you are looking for an upgrade path for this build, which it sounds like you aren't. This should be more than powerful enough to keep going for many years to come.

  1. If you already have the 1440p monitor, sure it should be fine. I guess I was thinking picking a resolution for the card more than picking a card that can handle the resolution.

The games you listed are all pretty light in terms of system requirements, so your build should be more than enough to handle them.

You could save a little on the motherboard if you give up OC and RAID support, and adding extra RAM insures that you can use it for heavier tasks, and help future proof it:

More sensible cooler; water cooling really only makes sense if your planning to do some serious overclocking. Motherboard was a bit excessive. This one won't support OCing but is MUCH cheaper and will otherwise serve just as well. Two-channel RAM is usually better, so I went with two sticks instead of four. Cheaper (but very reputable) SSD, standard HD for extra storage. GTX 1080- second best GPU currently available. Simple but classy case, everything you'll need for a build like this. Full version of Windows 10.

Cheers :)

  1. The 1060 is geared more for 1080p gaming, 1440p might be a bit more than it can handle.
  2. Is that 120gb SSD the only drive you have in that system?
  3. If you plan on playing big open world games (like GTA) you should look into more RAM.

Other than that, it looks good.

I just had my OS and a couple utilities. (7zip, etc.) Most of the data comes from your user files, (downloads, drivers and the like.) It adds up a lot faster than you might think.

RAM speed in general doesn't have much of an impact on gaming performance unless your using integrated graphics, so I wouldn't worry about that to much.

Better to spend the money on a larger SSD, 120gb is pretty small for a boot drive: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/4Yzvr7

The 212 isn't all that big as far as coolers go. This is what a big cooler looks like: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/B8rcCJ/thermalright-cpu-cooler-legrandmachort

Here's the parts you have as best as I can tell: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/VftCTH Is the Crucial RAM also 240 pin? more information is needed.

Your processor doesn't match the motherboard, (wrong socket) so there's one issue. Also, the Corsair RAM and the processor don't play well together, so there's another.

A different motherboard seems to fix some of that though: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/7pphf8

This is a pretty mismatched bunch of parts though, so don't expect a clear solution. Hope this helps some.

I'd consider going for at least a 240gb SSD, I had a 120gb as a boot drive for a couple years and it was pretty much constantly out of space.

Three of my friends have bought MSI laptops ranging from $1100 to $4500, and they have all been solid both in performance and reliability, so a big recommendation for MSI.

I'd avoid Clevo/Eurocom, I (and a couple of my friends,) bought the X3 from Eurocom and found it to be anything but reliable. Powerful, but very unreliable.

Hope that helps!

Overclocking probably isn't worth it for this kind of build, especially since your going for a small form factor. (airflow is a big deal) I don't know a whole lot about overclocking, though, so you might want another opinion on that.

The PSU looks fine.

Revised suggestion: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/ssXyhq

The i5 6600K is meant for overclocking, but the motherboard doesn't support it, so the newer (and marginally improved,) i5 7600 is probably a better choice, and the same price.

The 1060 3gb is okay, but very overpriced right now, so the 1050ti would be a better use of your money.

120gb is cutting it very close for space, assuming your using it as a boot drive, (speaking from experience.) I'd consider 240gb the minimum.

Minor note; RAM speeds over 2133/2400 won't be used unless you overclock it in the BIOS, so if your not planning on doing that going for a slower (and cheaper,) RAM will work just as well for you.
