You can get a Free mousepad if you want, and the top promos list CP RGB Mech kybd worth $80, instead of that CRAPPY one (SAME price)! Also free litestrip. I'd get NAME BRAND RAM for $15 more (forgot to tell B4), like Corsair/GSKILL, and 3 more brands to from, you'll get a better quality, higher end product. That would make $1505 total. You now have NO SSD at all, may be better w/ 240 and a 2TB spinner to go w/ it. Was just gonna try and set up a build. You'd prolly have enuf for both drives if you looked for that same screen ELSEWHERE!!
 
 
If it doesn't Light Up, Turn On, or Plug In, I don't want it!

I would have went with 16GB's of name brand RAM. For most instances 8 will work fine.

Personally, I stick with Nvdia for my GPU. The Nvdia 1060 has about a 80% increase in Pixel rate. The 580 has a 50% better texel rate. Nvidia uses less power and runs cooler.

Get your monitor locally, much easier to return.

Get the extended warranty with one year shipping in case you have issues.

If your not picking it up get the ultra care packing option to protect your system from UPS.

Okay just cancelled my second try LOL.
I'm going to go with your changes, and will get my monitor from newegg. The same monitor like $20 dollars cheaper, but 1 question remains that I need to know, do I get an LCD or the LED version? which works best with games and display in general?

I think ALL screens are LED now and might not even say. Just get an Acer, ASUS, or LG, 24", 1080p. Wait for a SALE, b/c after any rebates, 1 of these will be $100 or LESS EVERY week, w/ free ship, NO tax unless in Cali, NJ, and may be 1 or 2 other states, you can click at NewEgg for the short list (was only 3 or 4 states total). I don't live in those states so I LUV buying there, all my parts, etc, If I put in my own RAM/SSD/GPU and just got everything else assembled here (but CP Won't do that), prolly would have saved like $300, maybe. But unless you're gonna build the Whole rig from scratch - been there, done that - CP is definitely the best deal around. I get NewEgg emails daily, I'll post a link when an appropriate screen comes up, all last wk's deal are gone now.

Okay just triple checked that everything was right. Thanks a ton for the help, you got me upgrades on mouse and keyboard--that was nice and a lighting strip. Also you added a 3tb 7200 rpm second hard drive, in addition to the 240gb ssd you picked for primary hard drive.
I don't think I'm going to have storage problems lol, also I added shipping cushioning for inside the tower during shipping in addition to the shipping insurance you piucked in case of a need for a RMA etc...
All in all I feel so much more at ease now, glad I posted in here--it was exactly what I was hoping for, so far as a response was concerned. Anyhow heres the build info actual as of just now.  Sorry for the bold print, I'm 60 and I need all the help I can get LOL
In the future, if your familiar with nsuch, maybe we can get on TS and you walk me through tweaking the bios if it needs it. At least we can go in and see if its set right etc...
THANKS AGAIN!!!!

Thank you!

NAILED IT PERFECT!! Don't worry, I override browser fonts for better viewing so I can't tell anyway abt the bold prt, at just a few yrs younger, I'm sure my native font w/b as large or larger (usually 16-18 pt Corel bold squarish font in office pgms, I think it's the same font I have default to the screen here is MSIE 11 (chrome is never as readable/adjustable 4 me)).
 
The inside cushioning is actually a gd idea, I just left it out cause I've gotten it free a few times, and my UPS guy is OK. You never know tho, and most ppl do get it, so it's good for peace of mind.
 
 
Yeah, I've helped a few ppl on BIOS, easier when it's in front of me, and my rig is down (souped up MSI GT62VR Lappy here, GTX 1070, HDMI to my 52" 1080p Sharp Aquos), but my MoBo was also GigaByte, and the PDF manual is on all my setups so I could prolly use that to guide you some, at least if the BIOS is similar. Since I don't wanna bother to reboot, I can often guide someone thru BIOS w/ instructions from memory, since they're mostly similar, I tweak everything there on any new setup, at least anything that can be changed, if there's a more favorable setting, I'm very hands on. 
 
Good luck. I hope you ordered already. I don't think there were any exotic parts, so hopefully CP will get to the build quickly (if no major stock outages, I fig 1 - 2 wks till ready to ship, they quote longer so they don't p|$$ off buyers if it's a few more days - who get annoyed anyway - LOL) Today was a free U/G from 8 to 16GB RAM, which would cost over $100, you may not have needed it, but now in a few yrs you won't have to add more.
 
 
 
I keep all NewEgg sales w/ $100 or below 23/24" screens in those brands, usually all have free ship. There's none on now, Tues/Thurs are biggest sale days, so hopefully I'll post a link tomoro. If you have a brand preference, let me know. Those 3 brands all have a 3 yr warranty, each time I've chk'd. I don't like HP (rigs especially, but also HAVE/WILL not ever own a ptr either - FOUR X on phone they were uncooperative on presales and like questions), for a screen they MIGHT be OK, but I believe recently the coverage was only ONE yr, possibly two. Not sure if Viewsonic is still around much, they used to be good.
 
If you wanna get the same Monitor that's fine, it's a better deal there as I said so it's cool.
