    Hey, basically just building my second PC ever here.  Curious on what someone who knows a lot about this stuff could tell me about it.  I'm not sure if I need everything here or if anything makes something else useless.   Or if I should add anything else...not really looking to add much to my cost as it is USD and I am Canadian so it's already going to raise the price a solid 800+ on exchange rate alone.

    Constant first mistakes. You didn't research the other multiple posts.

    NEVER a standard PSU. These are junk, provide uneven power, have high failure rates and have been known to fry systems. Whenever you select "standard" that lets CP throw in whatever they may have. You may get lucky or you may get junk. Always select your components brand. A 750 watt PSU is fine. Thermaltake, EVGA, XFX, Corasir, Coolmaster.

    Anti-vibe mounts a waste. They are rubber plugs that secure the fan to the case. If you fan vibrates you don't want it in you case period.

    32 GB's of RAM is overkill for most everyone. If your doing 3D work, heavy multi-tasking or video editing OK. 16 GB's generally is fine. 

    Don't let CP overclock. They tend to just ramp voltages up. Use the MOBO software to do a moderate OC yourself. Or look up some U tube videos on how to with your MOBO. If you ever reset your BIOS or flash it you will loose the OC anyway.

    If you are shipping it get the ultra case packing plan to protect it from UPS. Also get the extended warranty. This gets you one full year of free shipping instead of just 30 days in case you ave any issues.


    Remember valor, honor, independence, family & clan; I do whenever I hear the ceol mor, the "great music" of the Highland bagpipe. I swear upon the holy iron of my dirk that I will not forget.

    I actually read up on the power supplies after I posted lol.   I will definitely be switching it out.   Power supplies have been my main enemy other than motherboards crapping out on me.   If I'm gonna be getting a more expensive one though what do you think of this one?  1,600 Watts - LEPA G1600-MA 80 Plus Gold Certified Modular Power Supply  or 850 Watts - Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB 850W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply ...is there even a point to having 1600W?   or is that just gonna be more power on the bill?  Lol  again something I know nothing about really.
    I killed the Anti Vibe mounts.  makes sense.  32GB I only want because my last PC I had was 32GB ddr3.  Also my wifey does editing and I definitely do multi monitor multi tasking.  I almost went with 64gb but the priceline isn't worth it.

    Killing the OC, do you know of a good video or place that I can go to for Overclocking myself?   My last PC was done professionally so I am a rookie for that altogether.

    Thank you for the advise on the shipping and warranty.   Looking at the other posts yesterday there seems to be a lot of issues for sending stuff back and whatnot and also UPS, well I worked for them...so lets just say I know they don't give a sh*t about packages.   I just didn't know if the foam was another form of ripoff from these guys or what.

    Thanks for the advice, if you would let me know between the two power supplies mentioned.   Thanks again!

     1,600 watt PSU is massive overkill. The 850 watt Thermaltake is fine. I definitely like fully modular. Gold is just more efficient than a bronze.

    Here is some info for your OC. >>> https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/asrock-z390-phantom-gaming-9-atx-1151-motherboard,5909-2.html

    Personally outside of bragging rights, I have no use for it with today's systems.

    As far as the ultra care packing, sometimes CP will throw it in, the only way to be sure order it. Besides the low expanding foam inside the case. I believe they put the case inside another box with foam padding. At least that is what we got with our past systems.

    I figured as much for the 1600.   Thank you very much for the OC info.   Useless with how good the PC's are now?   Muchly appreciate the packing info though man.  I definitely don't want a 2500+ PC to be damaged.   Good to know it is worth it though.   Anyways my Lady is an avid Gamer, also a photographer.  She is gonna be coming into money soon too for a PC.   Shes looking to spend between 1500-2000 and doesn't really care for looks although loves her Pink stuff.   Any suggestions on a build for her?   Custom and epic.   Feel free to throw me a couple build ideas for her.  Plz n thnx!

    Looks pretty epic, thanks man, she likes it, Ill throw the build here before we purchase for her, probably sometime from now.  But will definitely let you know the final result when it happens via sales and such.    Much appreciated.
