Whoops forgot the 2600 doesn't have integrated graphics, i just wouldn't personally want to buy a 4 core cpu when you can get so much better for a little more. Maybe wait until you can buy the gpu and zen 3 should be out by then, and you can buy the same build for less. Speed is pretty much the only difference between an SSD and HDD, pc boots faster, opens apps faster, loads games quicker, etc.

I would go for a 2600 for another 20, way more power for just a few extra and switch out the HDD for a smaller SSD maybe 250 or 500 gb and add the HDD later. You will be way better off getting the SSD now and just slapping the HDD in later. What gaming settings are you going? Cant see what your monitor is.

You have to at least explain why its better, what you changed for what and why you did it. Just saying its better optimized doesn't help them know what you think is wrong with his or her build.

I would actually really like to buy an i7 7700 k or non k but I just cant justify spending another $300 on a used i7 for this dead end platform. I think I would be much better off getting into the am4 platform now or with zen 2 or even stick with intel if they finally get to the next die shrink. Newegg had some pretty good deals on the 2600x and another 30 off with a mobo combo, now the deals are gone so im not so tempted to buy right now. Leaning heavily on just waiting for the next gens to drop.

Yep waiting seems like the best bet, but im really thinking about just buying a nice am4 mobo and 2600x since they are so cheap now. Ive been seeing to much stuttering lately on some newer games RE2 was pretty bad overwatch is a close 2nd ( I know I could turn some settings down but that's no fun) hoping the extra cores will solve that. I can live with fps below 100 but it has to be smooth. Plus ive been wanting to try out overclocking so that was another incentive to go for a ryzen cpu.

I would say they are so close just go for the cheapest when you decide to buy.

I guess I would need to see proof cause a google search doesn't come up with these "nasty recordings". Reviews seem to be good all around, gamers nexus says the vrm runs hotter than it "should" but it was still within spec and comes with a 5 year warranty for peace of mind. As far as price goes its right in line with any other triple fan oced card. If they like the looks of it the amp extreme is no worse than any of its competition.

Looks good other than the monitor the 1080 can push 1440p at 144fps on most games. Either downgrade to a 1050ti or get a nice 1440p monitor.

This is a decent list to get a feel for what to get, for the gpu a 1050ti would work to if you don't mind lowering settings a little. Just add 2 case fans, peripherals, monitor and your good to go.

Everything will fit but if your willing to pay 500 for a gpu get a 1080.

That cpu is plenty powerful enough 4 cores 8 threads plenty for gaming. If your playing at 1080p than this is a nice build for 60 fps high settings. 16 gb of ram really isn't necessary if your not multitasking.

Get ryzen, x299 or wait for coffeelake Without knowing whether the 1151 socket is going to be used for next gen I would wait it out or go with ryzen or x299. With both of them you get more power for around the same price.

Same here lol. I would go for the 7800x, intel still has the reliability and driver support, etc. over ryzen.

Definitely not twice the power just cause more cores and threads. If every little frame is important to you get intel if you do more than one thing at a time ryzen would be the better choice.
