First time building a PC could use help checking compatibility.

Hello everyone,

This is my first time building a pc but I think I have a list with compatible parts. However I would very much appreciate it if someone could help me by checking the compatibility and whether the list makes sense.

CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 Boxed
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B150-HD3P
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
PSU: Cooler Master GM G550M
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury HX426C15FBK2/16
Case: Sharkoon REX8 Value Black

This is a link to the pcpartpicker list with all items except for the case which I couldn't find on there:
The specs of the case can be found here:

Thank you in advance for all your help!

  3. Thank you for your quick reply, sadly enough I currently dont have space in my budget for a much more expensive PSU. The prices are also slightly different being from the Netherlands. Do you maybe have any suggestions that would be around the same price as the CoolerMaster?
  4. The corsair one fits into my budget perfectly, thank you very much!
  5. It's a new Corsair design , good fit for your setup.
  6. You are compatible.
    some suggestions:

    1. Buy a quality psu.
    I might suggest a Seasonic S12II 520w for less:

    2. Good thought on a ssd for windows. 240gb is fine.
    Unless you are planning on storing large files such as videos, consider deferring on the hard drive.
    It is easy to add one later.
    Or... why not go 500gb up front? You may never need a hard drive.

    3. I think you can do better on the GTX1060.
    I see a EVGA GTX1060SC for less. It has a higher clock and boost:
