That build has a $75 shipping charge, but you get 5% off w/ code Spring0410, and an i7-8700K performs just as well but costs less. Also, that cooler might not be sufficient for an X series CPU.

You certainly won't keep costs down by paying $60 xtra for RAM, get the ADATA, we all have it and it's fine.
 
You don't have a SSD. Also the WD Blue 1TB HD performs better for just $7 more. I'd add the shipping warranty.
 
That is an awful case, doesn't hold enuf fans, which you need to add (there's free ones).
 
Corsair is a good PSU, but the "CX" series is low end. The Tt 750W Bronze for less is OK, or try the Enermax 700W.
 
There's a better promo RGB kybd, worth $80, 1st item on top - featured promos.
 
 


If it doesn't Light Up, Turn On, or Plug In, I don't want it!

Solid.

I would never suggest the small form factor case. They tend to hold heat and can be hard to keep cool. Looks like this case only has one 120mm fan besides the liquid cooler.

Checkout code spring0410 for 5% off the total.

For $20.00 more the extended warranty gets you one year free shipping.
