What do you guys think of my first build?

This is my first build. I am looking to play 1080p games at high, very high, and ultra settings with at least 60 frames (turning settings down from ultra to very high or high is fine). The most demanding games i will probably be playing are gta 5, just cause 3, fallout 4, and witcher 3. I have a 1TB WD Blue hard drive in my old pc so i can use that. This is also probably the pc i will be using when i start college in 2 years, so there's that.
Here is the list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/NB4cjc

If you have any recommendations, let me know, Thanks in advance!

  1. Here's a better build.
    There's some very poor quality components in there.
    Spend a bit more and get a mechanical keyboard and a good mouse.

    Thank you for the suggestions, the reason i did not go with the powercolor rx 480 is because it has some cooling problems. as far as the video card goes, i should have mentioned that i am going to wait for the day that i order everything (which wont happen until like late july) to see which card (480 or gtx 1060) has the better deal.
  4. Yeah, thee powercolor runs fine at stock though, just adjusting for cost here.
    If you're not buying till July you shouldn't even bother making a thread now, make one on the day that you buy, prices always change daily.
  5. Here is an updated version. Should of also mentioned that i dont want to go over $800 and i dont really want to do mail in rebates.

    As for the mouse, im not very picky and i have heard many good things about tecknet.
  6. Should get something small. As for mice, I recommend the Roccat Lua: no frills, just a simple DPI adjustment button. But very good overall. As for keyboard, get some actual MX Blues on eBay if you really want that tactile feedback and sound. Those go for $50.

  7. Their mice are very cheap and extremely poorly made, stay away.
    You'll need to take advantage of mail in rebates to get the best deals, otherwise you're coughing up way more for this build.
    Go with that list, but replace the GPU with the Sapphire Nitro I posted above, much better.

  8. Alright good to know. Do you guys think the G4560 is too much of a bottleneck though?
  9. Here is a my version of the build with the pentium.

  10. No, it'll run fine, just use my build and sub in a pentium if you want, but the i5 will perform better and last you MUCH longer.

    Yeah i will probably upgrade to ryzen 5, or whatever intel releases because of ryzen 5 (maybe just i5 price drops) when i feel like the pentium is holding me back. Thank you guys!

    But I use the Roccat and it feels good...

    As for the RX 480, if OP decides to play something that uses DX 12, the card you showed will shine. But then he's playing GTA V and other DX 11 titles, so I personally think that in this case, he should get the 1060 instead.
  13. Was referring to 'Tecknet', not Roccat.
    Roccat make solid budget mice. :)
