You don't want to cheap out on the PSU at all. It's 60£, but the EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550 is one of the best PSUs out there. It scored a 10/10 on jonnyguru.com. It'll more than suit your power needs, it's efficient and fully modular.
Looks like it. I don't know if that liquid cooler is good (So anyone who knows about AIO Coolers, correct me if I am wrong) But I do know that the Scythe FUMA is an excellent cooler.
Honestly, I think you'd be better off getting a single-CPU motherboard and go with the I7-6800k. According to several sites, it's simply an overall better CPU. Granted, you have two Xeons, but I still do not think it's worth the cost. But, if you really want it, then it should suit your needs.
That I3 has been tested to run BF1 at Ultra settings 70fps average. BF1 isn't that intensive.
Anyhow, switch out that 460 and get the 1050ti. You'll be able to run BF1 no problem with that card. I would also advise using a 2x4gb stick so you can take advantage of dual channel. If you can squeeze it in, get a 120gb SSD. Put your OS and BF1 in it. BF1 has long load times and an SSD should cut down those times. It's not required, just something you may want to consider.
You're welcome, mate!
More VRAM generally means a faster card, but a 3gb 1060 is a great starting card. Later you can get a 6gb or a 1070.
AutoCAD programs usually need a beefy CPU. The better the CPU, the better your PC can handle complex models and how fast it'll render.

No problem, mate! Good luck!
No, but that's what a few of my friends (Hardcore computer nerds) are saying.
Not only does it draw less power, that build is more powerful. The I3-6100 is 30% more powerful than the FX-6300.
Why windows 7?
Thanks, mate. Look forward to it.
Swapped out for cheaper RAM, and a better CPU cooler. Your case doesn't support fan controllers, and the motherboard can only support up to about 3 fans. Two fans come preinstalled with this case, so I eliminated all but one fan. So, two intake and one exhaust.
Honestly, the I5-7600k is only 9% better than the 6600k. Zen CPUs are going to crush Skylake. Makes me wonder how powerful AMD's 250$ Zen CPU will be. I may actually have to go AMD for this one...
And how about that 32-core, 64-thread Zen Processor, tho?
Oh yes! Didn't catch that. Yes, he'll need something like the Scythe FUMA
You'll do fine. Youn could probably find a cheaper PSU, but not a huge deal. I would recommend you at least get a 120gb SSD and put your OS in it. Boot times will be drastically reduced.
If you intend to run a lot of mods with texture packs for minecraft (When I mean a lot, I men 150-200+) then you will need 16gb of RAM. I know from experience that 8gb won't be enough :)
Maybe. But intel is going to release their new processors soon. The I7 is very powerful, but you won't really notice an increase in gaming performance over the 6600k. If you do professional work, then yes. The 6600k will be a CPU that will age fairly well.
Absolutely. The I3-6100 is capable of running Battlefield 1 at Ultra settings, and the I5 is much more powerful.
I did. However, due to the layout of the case, getting every bit of dust proved to be not possible. I am not going to clean out the CPU cooler. I am going to replace it entirely.
Much better. Good pick.
IGPUs rely on fast RAM. If you got 16gb of 3000MHz RAM, the iGPU will perform better. The iGPU in the I7 isn't the worst thing ever. As far as IGPUs go, it's probably among the better ones.
I think you should save up to 500 or even 600$. You can get a very viable build out of that budget.
Hey, if you can do that, go for it! Just change the PSU. The NEX is overpriced for what it is. It's old. You can get a corsair PSU of the same price and have it perform much better.
Yeah, I am going to measure the clearance of my case to see what kind of cooler I can pop in there. The stock cooler is just loud and dreadful. I want to get something fairly cheap (30$ max). This PC will be eventually be handed off to my sister. So, keeping the CPU much cooler should ensure its longevity. I am going to apply new thermal compound to it as well. It has negative air-pressure. I think I am going to drill into the side panel and slap on a 120mm fan if I can. It had fairly large side vents.
If you fill up your SSD, it'll perform a bit worse. And from comparing the 1tb, 2tb, and 4tb versions of some SSDs, they all say they have the same Read/Write speeds.
The I3-6100 is about 20% better than the FX- 8320, anyway.
I would have gone with the Intel I3-6100 with the MSI B150 PC Mate and the cheapest DDR4 8gb RAM. The I3-6100 is about 15-20% better overall and it's the same price.
Just because you get the 6600k, doesn't mean you're entitles to overclock. The 6600k is a very powerful CPU. If you can afford it, definitely get it.
It's DDR3. That is what it says on the side of the RAM sticks.
The fastest DDR3 RAM is DDR3-667
Gotta love how optimized that game is, eh?
Oh my. This is such a beautiful and clean build. Congratulations. May it serve you well, mate! +1
Nice, but I wouldn't have personally gone with AMD. Not with AM4 being very close to release. I would've gotten an I3-6100 with a B150 Mortar Motherboard and 8gb of DDR4 RAM. That's just me. Nevertheless, it looks very well built. Very clean, very nice. +1, Mate.
Seems like a solid build. For about 15-20$ more, you can get a 1TB HDD. You should eventually get a 120gb SSD to store your OS and one or two games into.
Agreed. Unless you're the kind of person to run 300 mods in a game with high end textures, 8gb is enough for gaming. But, if you can afford the 16gb, you might as well get it. It'll aid in future-proofing.
Yeah, I think I am going to get this cooler with some aftermarket thermal compound.
Thanks. Yeah, it before the 750 ti, it was slow. Never got RAM crashes unless it was serious. The iGPU is disabled (obviously since I installed the 750 ti) I'll get more pictures when I can.
Right. But filling up an SSD begins to slow it down more than it would slow down an HDD. 1tb HDD is only 50$
I would have personally swapped out one of those M.2s for an HDD for mass storage.
No... you're using bottleneck incorrectly. If you had a 1080 with an I3, then it would the GPU would slow down and wait for the I3 to catch up. If you have a 1050ti, there little to no bottleneck due to the I3 being a fast core. And you'll overall get less performance because you're using an outdated CPU using outdated motherboards and outdated RAM.
Don't get AMD. They're outdated. Get the I3-6100, a mobo, a cheap one would be the B150 Mortar, and any DDR4 RAM.
It will if he gets an I3-6100
You're going to have to get a new CPU motherboard and RAM at the same time. Get the I3-6100 CPU, a cheap mobo (like a b150 mortar), and cheap DDR4 RAM of at least 8gb. Then I would either get a GTX 1050ti next or a 120gb SSD.
I mainly like the Kraken for look of the water block.
I don't know much about AIO coolers, but I've heard that Corsair is optimal. I also hear the NZXT Kraken does well.
Personally, I would want to increase my CPU's lifespan as much as possible by keeping it cooler. Scythe FUMA is an excellent cooler for its price.
Yeah, the I3-6100 is a beast for its price. One of the Pentiums are good for their price, but it does not even compare to the power of the I3-6100.
