    Posted: 09 Jun 2018 at 7:53pm

Based on all this from the website, is there stuff that would be incompatible? And if so, any recommendations? In addition, what are the essentials for a PC to be completely functional? I want to build something that will last for years and run games at almost the best quality-- 30 fps on console is not cutting it anymore. 

Thanks for the help!

I suggest a 240mm cooler with radiator fans and not standard fans chosen as the fan option.

You have a lot of HDD/SSD capacity included.  Is that you intention?

Your case comes with three front fans.  I suggest a rear extract fan.  You will have to order three (not "standard" case fans!).  Ask that the additional two to be sent to you "spares"

You are WAY overspending just to game. 4.... GRAND!?!?!
My god.

You could spend $1,500 today, and $1,500 in 4 years and get way more high end gaming than this thing is going to last.

To your (ridiculously overpriced) build.
First off code: SPRING0410 is going to save you $150 off. You're welcome.

You bought a WiFI adapter when your motherboard has one built in (just about all of them do). OK it was ONLY $5 out of almost $4,000 but it's also going to take up a USB slot. f**k that, drop it.
Gold Plated cables are not better then standard cables. It's marketing to get your money.
Monitors are almost always cheaper elsewhere. Amazon sells this one for $330.
https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Non-Glare-Refresh-Adjustable-FreeSync/dp/B079C3PV6N/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1528742140&sr=8-2&keywords=MSI+Optix+MAG27CQ

Then, you spend ALL this money for a top end system... and get basically a generic Mobo? NO. Get a name brand here. As much as we like CPPC for most things: their hardware isn't one of them. Get an ASUS, ASROCK or MSI, GIGABYTE.
You bought a soundcard: motherboards have soundcards built in. Good motherboards have good soundcards.
Wait... you bought ANOTHER wifi PCI card...for $80? So... now you have 3?
You overbought on the Power Supply. A 700W one is plenty. Don't pay extra for a 'quiet' one.

My build here last month runs all the games I play at 100+ FPS on max settings

CPU   ryzen 5 2600x

GPU  evga 1060 6gb

PSU  enermax 700w

MOBO   MSI  Z470

Memory      16gb  AD.  3000mhz

SSD 500gb WD  (only no other)

CPU COOLER     Cool Master 212 evo


NOTE:   An I5 or I7  8600k or 8700k would do me a little better on FPS   but all is good with where i am


PS----   SO YES YOU HAVE A LOT OF OVERKILL................ my system came to $1196 total delivered!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure how you managed to make this so expensive lol. I just ordered one using the same GPU/CPU combo as you AND I threw a lot of unnecessary money on RGB parts because it's my dream system and I have the spare cash and it was $3000 shipped. Granted that was without a monitor. 

Since you said you are new to PC's, I feel I should let you know that this GPU/CPU combo that you selected is seriously powerful and seriously expensive. You're looking at $1200 just for those two parts. It really has only two uses, either you intend on gaming playing primarily single player RPG style games in 4K 60FPS or you intend on gaming playing primarily multi-player FPS/Action games in 1440p at 130+FPS. If you really want that kind of power, make sure that you select a monitor based on which of those options is your goal and whichever you choose, make sure that it has GSync. 

I do not think you need 32gb of ram, unless you are doing modeling or video rendering, 16gb is more than enough. 

Don't get overclocking, you won't need it. 

I'd recommend a Samsung SSD and I have NEVER filled up a 1TB hard disk, so idk why you want 4TB. 

I also think 1000W is overkill. I'm using 750W on mine. You can look at my post a few posts down from yours to see what exactly I selected. 

Edit: For reference I built it without all the RGB and it was $2500 shipped.
