Description

I put this parts list together at the begging of the summer and was able to create my first PC. So far after 3 months of use it seem to be running great (knock on wood). I also got some extras which drove up the price. The 1st picture is my old PC for size comparison. In the 4th picture I cut up on of the cheap fans which came with the case to use as a spacer for the cpu cooler, as it would not fit in its current location without the spacer. After I was done with taking all the pictures I relied I forgot to cut all the zip ties lol and i cut them all after the fact.

A ryzen 7 would have been better if u just added 60$ . Isn't it? And a cheaper mobo. But nice and well balanced build overall

I do not know to much about Ryzen. But at the time purchasing all the parts it was around $1600-1700 as the 1070 was quite expensive at the time.

Looks good, but why did you do an i5 6600K with the 1070. I think that if you are going to do something like that, a 7700K is probably the right choice.

I have the same combo, and while I do wish I went with an i7, It works fine.

It is something to keep in mind for a future build. But how much of a mistake did I make by using the i5 6600K? And idk if you would know or not but how much performance am I missing out on by using the i5?

It isn't really big. At least you can OC the 6600K which will make it more of a match. It won't really be that a massive change in performance, but you will lose a few frames when gaming. Just maybe try out the overclocking thing. That will probably fill most of the performance gap.
