this my first time building a oc gamer so i want your opinion in this build.
First let me tell what i'm looking for:

* a bugdet motherboard that can allow me to upgrade in future and i would like it to be ATX (they told me atx is better correct me if im wrong please). let's say a motherboard lower than 100 euros (if possible)
* a good case that will keep my parts cool
* i would like to play at 60 fps (1080)
* and what power supplie should i use because i really have no idea.

Please feel free to do some changes is you like, and please keep it at 800 euros because that is my max budget.

thank you in advance

best regards.

    Pricing are based on PCPartPicker Deutschland; actual price/availability may differ depends on where you are in Europe.

    Even in the case the features list is the same, a H170 board still allow better connectivity due to the way Intel designed the 100 Series Chipset.
    RX470 4GB will out perform the R9 380X while consuming less power.
    And the SeaSonic S12II 620W can handle all i5+single GPU configuration.
    The Corsair SPEC-01 RED offers plenty of cooling option + one USB 2.0 port that the ASROCK H170M Pro4 rear panel lacked.
  2. ^ The 290 outperforms the 470 for just a few bucks more.
  3. Are you sure that the "R9 290 that is just a few bucks more than a RX470" is available for OP to purchase?

    Perhaps you wouldn't mind helping OP out by giving him the link to such R9 290?

    Actually I had a whole list, with detailed explanations, but most of it was same as yours, so didn't post it (I'm getting slow in my old age LOL)

    It's available as an ASUS at Amazon France. https://fr.pcpartpicker.com/product/YMp323/asus-video-card-r9290dc24gd5

    I can't believe with Germany's stellar state of economy, that their websites have such ridiculous prices. Maybe it's just because they know most Germans can afford to pay more. The old price gouge routine.

    I agree with what you said earlier though, that it's going to come down to what country he lives in, and shipping rates. People should ALWAYS mention country of origin when asking such questions.
  5. I recomend dual channel ram because its a lot faster than single stick
  6. And i would pick MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GB GAMING X 3G its simiral price and its more powerful and its newer
