Opinion on My Components for My First Build I'm Planning to Buy

Hello, I'm about to buy my parts next week and need your opinion on my PC. My budget for everything is no more than $1450. I will be using this PC for gaming at 1080p 60fps on most games at high settings. I also want to play eSports games like CS:GO and Overwatch at 100+ fps.
Buying from the U.S.

Thank you. :)

  1. The anti-static mat is totally unnecessary. Just touch a large metal object occasionally while building, and don't build it while wearing shoes on carpet.

    The parts should work together well.

    I don't know if you need one, but there's no mouse.

    For eSports and CS:GO, this build is total overkill. You can run those on the 1050 Ti with a Pentium G4560. If you want to play more demanding games later, though, it's quite solid.

    I will be playing demanding games on my computer as well as well. I already have a mouse. For the mat, I know you don't need it, but I'm really paranoid that I will forget to to ground myself and I will zap a part.

    Thanks for the response :).

    Why should I get the 1600 vs. the 1600x? Thanks for recommending the power supply, now realize I don't need 650w.
  5. the 1600 and 1600X overclocks abt the same. if u plan to do some crazy overclocking with a beefy cooler like cryorig r1, noctua nh d15 or kraken x62 to hit 4.2 ghz, then 1600X is what u need. for normal tasks and gaming, a 1600 oc'ed to 4.0 is enough.

    What do you think of this ram instead of the one you chose https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Cf98TW/gskill-memory-f43200c16d16gvkb. Also, is the included cpu cooler good for my needs.
