So far i have been looking at this build, i already have a monitor keyboard and mouse but would be nice if i could fit a mechanical keyboard in there.
Budget is 1300$

  1. 520w PSU is not gonna cut it.

    Also drop to a 120GB SSD and a cheaper chassis if you need to free up some cash.
  2. do you really want micro atx form factor?
  3. Been thinking of swapping out the PSU for a corsair ax760 because electricity is really expensive where i live. Also the the case size fits perfectly under my desk so i went for the microatx
  4. check this . . .some changes

  5. STACKS ON DECK. Not bad.

    However again, needlessly expensive chassis, weaker GPU that you originally chose...
