What do you think of this build? (Building my First PC)

Hello! So I'm building my first PC soon, already ordered all the components (Yes I know the basics so they will all work together) Give your opinion please!

Here are the Specs:
CPU: i5-4440 (Re-using this CPU from my Old PC since I'm poor)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master RR-TX3E-22PK-B1
GPU: GTX 1060 ASUS DUAL 3GB OC
RAM: 8 GB DDR3 1600Mhz (2x 4GB) (Might Upgrade to 16GB (2x 8GB)
MOBO: MSI H81M-E33
PSU: Seasonic S12II 520W
Case: Nox Hummer ZX Zero Edition White
HDD: 3.5" Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA III
Mouse: Cougar 500M Gaming White
Keyboard: Corsair Gaming K55 RGB
This build will have 5x Blue LED 1200RPM Fans wich will be connected to the Case's Fan Controller.

I think the PSU can handle it.

Do you guys think this will be able to run:
Witcher 3, Andromeda, Destiny 2, Battlefront 2, Watch Dogs 2, Rainbow Six Siege and the upcoming titles Anthem and Monster Hunter World?

  1. The PSU will handle this and many more just fine.
    currently, the weakest point of this PC is the CPU - but it should be good enough for 60+ FPS gaming.
    overall you have a nice 1080p@60Hz gaming machine

    If I were to upgrade the CPU, what would you suggest? (Within LGA1150 Socket)
  3. Best answer
    a high clocked i7 would be great. since the MB does not support overclocking, 4770 or 4790 would be great. you can find them used for slightly over 100$.
    Other i5 would be not that much of an upgrade.
    right now, i don't think you NEED to upgrade something.
    first part i'd invest into is SSD. then (before touching the CPU or RAM) decide for how long I want to keep this machine. If it's a year or two, not really worth.
    if you plan to use it for over 2 years, 16GB of RAM and at some point i7, would be great.
