Came from an i5-6500, B150 Mobo and GTX 980. I like everything on my rig. Only issue that I face is that Ryzen runs hot. Will probably upgrade to an AIO in the future.

what refresh rate are you running?

60 but have plans to upgrade to 144.

I also have plans to upgrade my motherboard and the price to get a Z270 + 6700k and X370 + 1600x is actually the same. The 6700k's price has gone down significantly.

What if I could get both, with their own respective motherboards at the same price?

Here's a list I made with a 1080 for under $1300. However, this is for the CPU only. You still need a Monitor, Operating System, Mouse, Keyboard, Headset.

DId you have any issues screwing the motherboard in the case? I am asking since the Gaming 3 is a bit narrower than standard ATX Boards being 235mm wide versus the standard which is 244mm.

I feel so bad with all the cables hanging around. R5 is an excellent case and it has more space to hide your cables at the back. You can also remove your drive cages if you're not using it for more space / airflow. I really want to appreciate the beauty of your components but all I see are cables.

+1 on the H7.

  1. Because it kills the Hyper EVO performance wise.
  2. Because it looks better.
  3. Because I have it.

You'll be fine with the i3-6100 / R9 380 combo. Don't underestimate your CPU.

I'd get a better PSU. Corsair's CX series is bad. Get a Seasonic S12II, M12Ii or their G Series.

Budget is around 30,000 Php ($622). A total of $428.94 is already allocated for the CPU ($199.85), Motherboard ($137.87) and the RAM ($91.22). Budget left for the GPU is $193 so I have to borrow money first or sell my 960 to get the 980 on that price. This is the reason why I need to get the best bang for buck GPU which I believe the 980 will give me. Its an old GPU yes but it's still a 980. It's performance is proven and tested. One does not simply upgrade a GPU and say 980 sucks lol. :)

The list Reiza made is made using UK Currency so I converted it to USD. However, there's no price for the PSU. I converted 42.98 British Pound to USD and that will be 52.55 US Dollar increasing your total to $505.67.

This list includes an SSD. Remove it and you will be within your budget.

The components, your PSU on Tier 4 "Built down to a low price. Not exactly the most stable units ever created. Very basic safety circuitry or even thin gauge wiring used. Not for gaming rigs or overclocking systems of any kind. Avoid unless your budget dictates your choice."

The SeaSonic S12II is on Tier 2 with Tier 1 being the highest.

Tier Two As above, just slightly lower quality than Tier 1. Still safe to use and are all stable for any PC of today's standards, including Haswell C Stepping certification. Recommended for those on a fairly limited budget.

I got some comments form the link I shared which may help you. It's never bad to spend more for a better PSU.

"thank you for quick response :) i was unsure which to pick that Seasonic M12II-620 EVO ATX 2.3 or Corsair CX Series 600Watt Modular because they were almost at the same price range, i just went with seasonic because it seemed like more thrust worthy manufacturer."

"Exactly, seems the conversation on the new list begins exactly as the one on the old list ended, with the Corsair CX series, bane of builders everywhere. CX series is a poor choice for systems with gaming cards or overclocked systems, let's just get that right on out of the way now for future reference. Ok for mainstream machines, not dependable for gaming rigs."

@ darkbreeze, "CX series, bane of builders everywhere" haha so true. Can't blame people for wanting to save money and not waste it but the near constant 'sales' of the cx series in the $30-40 range really is a burn since it seems to sucker tons of unknowing folks to grabbing it (and giving it unwarranted 5 star ratings purely because it's cheap).

I hope so. Everyone's getting their hands on the 1000 series and it may be impossible for me to get a good deal soon. On the other hand, the 900 series gets cheaper by the day since everyone plans to upgrade.

Wattage is good, but i'm talking about the build / components.

Taken from: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

Components - Higher quality components means more stable functionality, thus longer life on power supply and components of PC. Low quality components can affect the life of the unit and all components of your PC.

Tier Four

Built down to a low price. Not exactly the most stable units ever created. Very basic safety circuitry or even thin gauge wiring used. Not for gaming rigs or overclocking systems of any kind. Avoid unless your budget dictates your choice.

Corsair CX / CXM Channel Well Technology VS Channel Well Technology

Quoted from: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/6-things-know-buying-power-supply-unit-psu/

"When you are assembling a new computer, don’t give in to the temptation of buying a cheap power supply unit (PSU). The PSU supplies power to your entire system, and a bad one can cause that expensive motherboard or graphics card to malfunction. Don’t take this risk, ever!"

But it's your CPU so you decide. I only shared my opinion since you asked. :)

I'd change the PSU to SeaSonic S12II 520W 80+ Bronze.

CPU: i3 6100 one of the best budget skylake beast or get the i5 6500 if your budget permits. Cooler: Just felt like adding it but you can remove it. MOBO: Got you one of the best reviewed Z170 Motherboard for future proofing reasons since it is easier to change everything else. RAM: Cheaper from the same company. GPU: 1060>470 Case: Cannot find the 100r so i got you this one which is the same as 100r

Made this using UK prices so i'm not sure if the price is the same with Netherlands.

Yeah it's close. I think my budget will decide which one ill get. I still need a CPU, Mobo, RAM. and probably add an SSD too so whatever's left with the budget will be used for the GPU. Who knows, somebody may give me a good deal for a 6gb 1060.

"To be honest, there is not a clear winner if you compare those two." - exactly, that's why i'm having a hard time.

A review by Tom's Hardware says: " It typically doesn't catch the GTX 980 we were hoping to see it beat, commonly landing between then 970 and 980 instead."

Review: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1060-pascal,4679-9.html

So should I still go with the 1060? I'm looking like a 980 fanboy now.

Why get a 960 for $300 when you can get a 1060 for $250?
