    i5 with a good GPU yes!! :)

    I hear yah, but in this scenario, I think he wants to be more conscious of overall budget/value. Plus hes gonna need to add in a monitor and might be a few things hes adds like fans or a sound card, for example

    I wouldn't bother wasting money on fans just to look cool. Function over form with his budget.

    Personally, I'd get this monitor. It's at $139, which is around $40 more expensive than the AOC one but you get more options to connect to it and is VESA mount compatible for when you want to get a monitor mount that clamps onto desks and free up desk space underneath.

    If you want to get that, I won't blame ya for dropping to the i5 6600k because that's a pretty good monitor. That and because the 6600k is still a pretty dope ass processor... just not as bulletproof as the 6700k.

    No, that thing's usb connected.

    $199 is what has been claimed, @Intel_man seems to have it added in pcpartpicker for $249

    I'd imagine it will be around that range!

    $199 for 4G version, $249 for 8G from the articles I've been reading.


    For the time being, you'll probably have to just run your computer off of the Intel Integrated Graphics. I'll let @Laquer Head tell you all about how amazing it is.

    One thing we didnt talk about was the OS. You will need to get Windows 10 licence, and I assume your gonna be putting Windows on the SSD, so make sure you get those at same time or you'll be looking at a box of pretty parts!! :)

    Absolute agree, if you can make room for an M.2 then its def. what you should do over the sata3 SSD. Those Samsung M.2 absolutely decimate any SATA3 drive

    BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    I wouldn't go with 120GB. That'll be very tight. 240-256GB is the minimum I'd go with nowadays. The Samsung 950 Pro is a harddrive. It's an absolute beast and will demolish any SSD that is connected to the SATA3 standard.

    I'd recommend a 250GB for OS and programs, but technically a 120GB would work, but I like to have alot of space and not be restricted, bogging down SSD will kill performance!

    The Samsung 950 he mentioned is a type of SSD called an M.2 its a small form factor and runs using pcie lanes, rather than the sata3 connection.

    I think I will stick with a 1TB HDD and then get a 240GB SSD later.
