What monitors are these - which ports do they have? Resolution?

Will you need each monitor to be run separately or are they for displaying the exact same video output on each one?

What does the camera use connect to the PC?

How complex is this speaker system? Does it support/require a certain channel output?

A lot of questions, but necessary for a more tailored list.

I've made a few tweaks here and there to squeeze as much as I could out of your budget (which I assumed was just under $1200).

  • First off, I personally don't trust mail-in rebates and wouldn't recommend relying on them to stay with a budget, since retailers make them difficult to claim.
  • Adding an alternative CPU cooler isn't necessary since the cooler which is included in with the R5 2600 is adequate.
  • I can't vouch for Deepcool since I don't know how well made their cases are, but Phanteks are pretty good and, to me, the P350X looked a bit and seemed to fit your theme a bit better (more on that later).
  • The TXM series are good units but seem a bit pointless to me since it's just their gold rating which puts them ahead of the very capable CXM series. Since both are semi-modular I would say CXM is fine, however, having worked with one - despite being much nicer than non-modular, I still which I'd invested in a fully-modular unit. That brings me on to the G3 550W I've put in the list instead, which is both gold rated and fully-modular. Of course, efficiency ratings are definitely not a bible for the quality of a PSU. Tested by multiple reviewers, the G3 series are all-round very solid units.
  • I also managed to get a GTX 1660 in, being a noticeable upgrade over a 580.
  • Spotted a larger 144 Hz 1080p Dell monitor which is ten bucks less than the MSI. If it's not to your fancy I left the Optix in a parametric filter so you can add it back.
  • Back onto your theme, I noticed you had a few RGB parts, including the RGB cooler that wasn't very necessary. Still, you can easily add a bunch of colours to your PC with LED strips. Here's a couple that you may like:

Ah. You see you can't link to your parts list like that because that's the URL for everyone's current contents of their system builder. You need to paste the unique link for your list or, better, embed it like this:

  1. Go to System Builder and select the highlighted icon. See image for instruction: https://i.imgur.com/hB6bsng.jpg

  2. Copy the contents in the box and paste it into your post. See image for instruction: https://i.imgur.com/hfIGSGz.jpg

Now when you save the post it will appear formatted.

Note: I made these screenshots back before the redesign, but the icons are in essentially the same place. It's mainly the colours and borders that have changed.

Hmm, both would work fine. I'd say the Ryzen build has more 'power' - the extra threads can take heavier workloads on video editors etc.

The majority of motherboards support the update, however, the actual process of updating the BIOS may require a Summit Ridge CPU (Zen).

An OEM version of Windows will prevent you from installing it on a different motherboard if you ever decide to switch.

Also, flashing that BIOS may prove problematic- you may need a summit ridge CPU to do the update.

Either way you'll get a premium gaming experience. Unless you're planning on heavy multi-tasking, the 8700K is good option if it fits in the budget.

This would make for a good build:

No worries :)

Yes and no. The 2700X and 8700K have similar overall performance, however they may perform a certain task better than the other. For example, if the game isn't very well optimised for SMT (Simultaneous multi-theading) then the 8700K will probably run it better - however if the game can utilise multiple threads well or maybe you are streaming etc., then the 2700X would outperform the 8700K with it's 16 threads versus the Intel's 12. It really depends on what you use the system for - either way both CPUs have exceptional performance and are well suited to almost any task.

As you can see they're similar in price.

Alternatively, if you're not that interested in overclocking, opting for the 2700 instead would save you an additional 30 bucks.

Pretty much - the Ryzen chips have much more threads whereas the Intel Core series focuses on single core performance. It depends on how you will use the PC.

AMD are known for having very good price/performance ratio.

  • The H100i is similar in performance compared to its NZXT counterparts, and you save $40.
  • The 860 EVO 250GB is the successor to the 850 EVO, and is also, somehow, cheaper by $20.
  • 2TB HDDs aren't that much more than 1TB ones - it'll have greater longevity in your build.
  • Still a 1080 Ti, this one has a slightly higher clock speed and is a little less expensive.
  • The EVGA GQ series are fine, but this PC should have a higher caliber one - the G3 750W is on sale at Amazon atm.
  • Avoid OEM versions of Windows as it'll mean that you'll only ever be able to install on that one motherboard - with a full version you can move key to a completely different PC later down the road.
  • Paid subscriptions of anti-malware software aren't mandatory. I use the default Windows Defender and a bit of awareness and I haven't any problems.
  • Also included a DisplayPort cable (if you don't already have one).

Oh, I see now.

What kind of games will be run on this PC, and what settings?

An entry level build would be like an R3 1200, 8GB RAM and a 1050Ti, which would happily run most games @ mid-high settings 1080p60.

No, no, the GTX 1050 Ti is inferior to the 1060 6GB, that's correct. But I haven't got my 1060 6GB running games at max settings with smooth framerates. Btw, are you planning on using that 1060 6GB you already have in this new build?

AMD's Ryzen line-up is good for its price/performance ratio. But it's your call.

Also, what budget do you have in mind?

The 1060 6GB can't handle AAA titles at max settings 1080p with a solid 60+ FPS, but it gets close.

Also, have you not considered Ryzen?

Why specifically the 8400 and 1060?

Yep, and since Intel had no competition, they started slacking too * cough * Broadwell.

Funny to think that the 'top' 2 consoles are actually running AMD APUs from 2013.

Use Speccy® by Piriform to identify the parts - https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download (It won't be able to identify the PSU though).

Also, don't go down the FX route - they're an obsolete and a poor quality product line. Ryzen is much better - I'd strongly recommend an R3 1200.

Parts are from either: Paradigit.nl, bol.com or Megekko.nl.

I didn't include keyboard or mouse as those are more personal choices and it's hard me to choose one for you, since I cannot know what works for you best. I personally recommend going for a Logitech, Corsair, Cooler Master or Razer, there are others that do a good job.

On it - I have to juggle between sites though.

I'm not from the Netherlands, but I found bol.com sells some components, also Paradigit.

A little while ago the GPU market 'blew up' (damn Bitcoin miners) so prices for them are pretty high right now - GTX 1060s were around $200-250, now they're $300+. Plus, all the RX 580/570/480/470s are sold out, or at ridiculous prices. For now, you may want to wait for the prices to settle.

(When at the normal prices) the 1080, 1070 and 1060 are pretty good buys - I have a 1060 6GB and I can run AAA titles at near max settings (1080p) with a good 60-80 FPS (e.g. GTA V).

Even if you are serious about building a workstation, the list you've made is past overkill - half of isn't needed. Although, I don't know exactly what you are doing.

Could be, he should try going back to the B150 to see if it still works.

(It's possible that something got damaged during installation, or something)

You could use DDR3 with Skylake if you had the right motherboard (don't know why you would?)

Can you get him on PCPP? No worries if not.

Ask him to check all internal cables are plugged into the correct places. (E.g. check CPU power, also if the GPU is correctly seated into its PCIe slot).

If that doesn't work, ask him to remove the GPU and use the integrated graphics on the 6600K (by connecting the HDMI/DVI) - to see if it boots up that way.
