I have 2 questions
1) pcpartpicker.com says that there are no issues found in this build. Which means they're all compatibe. I just want to ask everyone in this forum specially to those who already built one. If you have any suggestions on any changes, please tell me. By the way, I don't need another SSD , 120+GB is just enough. I already have WD Blue here. Just tell me if the item is too much for the build or not good for the build. and give me suggestions please.

2) pcpartpicker.com says I only need 256W of power supply, what do you guys think of it? How many watts do I need for this build? Considering that after few months I'll try to upgrade it by starting to put WATER COOLER in it.

  1. Yeah sounds about right to me.

    54w CPU, rx 470 uses around 140w, plus all the extra bits.

    A good quality 450-500w will be plenty and keep it in the most efficient range of the PSU.
  2. Best answer
    A 430-450w PSU is plenty for your build, however I would advise spending just a little more and getting a 550 today and that way your PSU can handle any GPU you may upgrade to down the road. Well worth the extra $15-20 investment. This is a much better PSU: https://www.amazon.com/SeaSonic-550-Watt-CrossFire-Certified-SSR-550RM/dp/B00918MEZG/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1488295926&sr=1-1&keywords=seasonic+g+550w+80+gold+certified+semi-modular+atx+power+supply

    In regards to the rest of your build, if you are going to go with budget level SSD then get the PNY, while the previous generation Sandisks (Like the Ultra II) where great that SanDisk Plus is junk and randrom read/write speed is almost no better then a magnetic disk.
  3. I agree with the above.

    I'll add though, there's no reason to spend on water cooling with your setup, especially if you are on a budget.

    One last suggestion is to wait for Ryzen reviews, CPU prices might fall a bit, even for socket 1151, and you might want to get a different CPU since yours is a bit too budget.
  4. Didnt notice the water cooler part, good catch.

    Any non-overclockable intel cpu will not bennefit in any way from using an aftermarket cooler (air or water).

    Your CPU/GPU is matched very well for performance ability. While the g4560 is the bare minimum gaming CPU, it is more then sufficient for your card choice and is an excelent stepping stone that you can then upgrade latter on.
