Put together a similar build on PCPartPicker that came out to be about $1100 without an OS, mouse/kb and maybe a few other things. I also tried to use lower-priced parts because I'm not sure about a lot of the components (motherboard, psu, hdd/sdd brands or type. I think this is pretty decent if you're in the area. I sure ain't. :[

you cannot build a 6700k+1070+os rig for under $1000 right now. for those who want prebuilt this is a good deal.

This is exactly what I am looking for. I can't buy right now, but if this is still around come mid December, I may have to forgo building and just buy this rig. Nice looks/design, nice specs and I really like the VR ready in mind (HDMI port on top/easy access).

My build was $1200

Except I got a 500gb 850 evo ssd
32gb of ram
No dvd drive
and cheap $30 windows license

I would say this is decent if you don't have to pay taxes, if you do then add another $90

Unknown motherboard, CPU cooler, HDD, SSD, and power supply. No, thanks. I wouldn't be surprised if they used a stock cooler, a B150 (can't overclock with it), the slowest storage, and a generic PSU. It's $1200 + $60-120 tax = about $1290, and has a 1-year warranty.


Here's what you can build for $1310:

PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/MCQTr7
Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/MCQTr7/by_merchant/

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($339.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Scythe FUMA 79.0 CFM CPU Cooler ($45.95 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI Z170A Tomahawk AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($112.98 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Crucial MX300 275GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($69.98 @ Amazon)
Storage: Toshiba P300 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.51 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Windforce OC Video Card ($389.99 @ B&H)
Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: EVGA 650W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($69.99 @ Amazon)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit ($85.70 @ My Choice Software)
Keyboard: Redragon S101 Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse ($23.48 @ Amazon)
Total: $1310.56
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Faster RAM and most likely higher performing HSF, HDD, SSD, and PSU. Motherboard includes 802.11ac dual-band (up to 800 Mbps) wifi and also dual-band Bluetooth. If you buy certain parts from the deals on slickdeals, then it'll be cheaper. Also, Amazon LLC and newegg are authorized resellers, so warranties on the parts range from 2-5 years. The mobo, CPU, GPU, and PSU are 3-5 years (IIRC). Main caveat: gonna take you 3-10 hours to build it, if you're a first-timer. Wink



That MSI PC seems like a good deal, but you'll probably be overspending on either of these PCs because there's cheaper parts that'll fit your exact needs. Plenty is wasted on higher-end parts which you'll hardly take advantage of, e.g. running a 1070 on a 60 Hz monitor at 1920x1080. Get a 1060 6GB for $150, and most couldn't tell the difference in quality. But, it all depends on what exactly you want from a PC.

Hiya, can you review my future build and make changes to if it necessary, I plan to purchase my first gaming PC but I'm not sure if the build I have right now is worth it's money. My budget is ~1.5kish including a monitor. Thanks! http://pcpartpicker.com/list/xXk4NN
