  1. Mostly good, but you may want to consider a higher capacity SSD. Not only is 120GB small enough to quickly fill up once you load multiple games on it, but it's also known that larger SSDs perform faster than smaller ones of the same design.

    240GB would be good.

    Yes, you can stream on that machine if you get a well optimized program. There's a program called OBS Studio (formerly OBS Multi-Platform) that allows you to enable Nvidia hardware encoding which makes the graphics card render the stream instead of the CPU. Using these settings will drastically reduce stutter in games when streaming.
  4. also i do youtube am i able to edit and upload. and for streaming i would be streaming xbox one games. would an elgato hd60 s work with this build?

    You can edit for YouTube. I recommend getting an editor that can use Nvidia hardware acceleration while rendering. You'll have to ask which ones these are, I'm not your man for that question.

    You can use an elgato hd60 s, yes. You have USB 3.0 connectors built right into the rear of your motherboard.

    Its $13.21 more expensive, but you'll get 240Gb faster SSD and faster RX 480 and more powerful famous seasonic 620W. The only downsize is cheaper casing (its actually bigger), slower HDD(its only for storage) and non modular psu (just less cool looks). Trust me, this will perform much better than your build. Here are links that show how different they will be:

    Hope this help.

    Your choice of motherboard is not bad, but lately I hate Gigabyte due to bios problem within H110, Z170 chipset against kaby lake. Its personal, but you should decide yourself.
  7. what is the difference between a gtx 1060 and a rx 480. i recently heard that the rx 580 and rx 570 is coming out in April

    I didn't quote your build so you can change it without the quotes of the old one causing confusion.

    Go with an RX 470 to save some money. The RX 480 does offer more compute power than the RX 470, but this is used for complex number crunching like Folding@Home and isn't really useful to gaming. The two are about on par when gaming.

    I also heard that they may be rebrands of the RX 400 series like how they refreshed the R7/R9 200 series as the R7/R9 300 series a few years ago. But that's just rumor.

    Even Nvidia pulled this crap. I bought a Dell with a GTX 760 ti in it. Turns out the 760 ti is a rebranded GTX 670 that can only be had in prebuilt OEM systems. I thought I was getting the enhanced power delivery systems seen in the 700 series, but I wasn't. Oh well, the system was only $40 and still serves me well as my internet browser.

    Really? RX 480 difference isn't really useful to gaming? see the link below:

    They mostly 10+ fps different in any AAA game.
    Well, its up to you. It is not my duty nor get any benefit to convinced anyone.

    My recommendation does cost more, but don't you think its worth it?
  11. i am not a fan of AMD so i made a few changed

    Looks good. I'm not going to bring up that the GTX 1060 is inferior to the RX 470/480 in some games, because it's superior in others. The cards trade blows left and right, there is no clear winner with the current drivers.
  13. Best answer
    Yeah, I owned a GTX 1060 6Gb (bought 3 months ago) and I was currently furious since RX 480 4Gb cost US$100 less in my country and perform almost the same. I currently ordering a RX480 4Gb for my office pc. Make sure you get 6Gb version of GTX 1060 as most AAA game needed 4Gb to run 1080p ultra setting.

    As weber said, RX470 is 10% perform less than 480 but in my country the price differ is around 7%, so still worth to get 480 instead.

    Have fun with your build
  14. Thanks for your help
  15. Actually, the difference between the two GTX 1060 models is more than just the amount of VRAM. The 3GB version also has less CUDA cores as it's designed to by more budget friendly. It's significantly less powerful than the 6GB version.

    Yeah, and why do they still put label 1060 on 3Gb version. If its reduced than its no longer a full 1060, they should gave different name like 1060L (L for lame).

    Other story were in amd version. The early 480 4Gb was found an actual 480 8Gb with locked ram. I cannot wait to see if my 480 4G is one of them.

    I remember getting my X2-555 into X4-B55 at no extra cost, and it was still running until get retired just yesterday since I have another i5 lying around.

    Well, to OP, do remember your budget. The last build has exceeded far from your original. Its better if you gave us you max budget so we could gave you the best build. If your budget can get extended, I would advice you to get US$807 to optimized this build.

    With that budget, you will no longer have to worry about bottleneck. The only part that need to get upgrade in around 2 years time is the gpu. Cpu, ram, powersupply, SSD are all suffice until this build start falling apart. When the SSD has broken, you should look for M.2 'Samsung 960 evo's class which has around 3x the current standard SSD. This motherboard can support it.
