First PC Build

2 posts in this topic

Looking for some advice on my first PC Build and introduction into PC gaming. Not sure which GPU would be better, or if any problems (heat, bottlenecking, overclocking etc...) Also will I need any extra fans as the case comes with 1 front 120mm fan.

  • Intel I5-6600K
  • Cooler Master Hyper T2
  • MSI B250M Gaming Pro
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8gb
  • Seagate barracuda 2Tb
  • Fractal Core1000 case
  • EVGA 500w
  • MSI Radeon RX 480 OR MSI GeForce 1060

Build looks mostly OK. I would swap either the i5-6600K for a non-K model (i5-6600) or the B250M to a Z170 or Z270 since the K models and the Z motherboards allow you to take advantage of the unlocked multiplier for overclocking. If you're not planning on overclocking, go with a non-K version of the CPU. Also, 7th Gen core processors are out, so you can pickup an Intel Core i5-7600K or i5-7600 rather than an i5-6600 for a minor performance improvement. 

As for the GPU, the RX 480 or GeForce GTX 1060 are both good. It really depends on which games you play since each company has games that are optimized better for the specific GPU. 

What's your budget and what games are you trying to play?
