-Moved to New Builds and Planning-

 

I'd get a bequiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 instead of the Corsair H60. Beyond that, all looks good.

What monitor resolution/refresh rate?

What kind of games?

You could have installed windows for free without a key from microsoft.

If you only need a 1080p 60hz gaming PC it's like $700 max

In my opinion 120mm AIOs aren't that practical. Instead grab an air cooler like a Cryorig H7. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/93Crxr/cryorig-cpu-cooler-h7

I would swap that out for something that has an open air cooler design.

You don't need 750W, and the EVGA G3 has some issues with protections (which won't be an issue for you), and is also very loud. Instead I would recommend something like the Corsair RM550x. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/bqVD4D/corsair-rmx-2018-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-cp-9020177-na

Can you give the entire pc part picker list so we can see things like wattage and price?


Please don't argue with me, I am just trying to help, or be helped. (we are all humans right?)

You can always get the Dark rock 4 non-pro. It should be plenty good in terms cooling performance. Also, most people will probably recommend a Ryzen CPU over an 8600K, but there's nothing wrong with your list. You can also save a few bucks by going with a 550W or 650W PSU, unless you plan on doing some serious upgrades (even then, a 650W is usually plenty).

Looks good, I wouldn't pay $100 for a windows key you can get them for around 10-20$. I would personally get a better mouse the razer deathadder, zowie, or logitech g502. Might also get a better monitor with the windows key savings. I'd also check out used stuff if it's available in your area/country you can get some pretty crazy deals rn.

120mm AIOs are a waste of money 99% of the time. This build is in that 99%. If you're going for an AIO, go at least 240mm. A typical 120mm AIO is only a wee little bit better than the half-as-expensive Deepcool Gammaxx 400.

Yes the build looks fine, but like stated, the odd part is your cooler. H60 is pretty old, little on tbe smaller side, and to really get that cpu going you want a better way of cooling it.

 

If its a budget issue then look for 650w psu instead and figure out a way to use the saving on better cooling.

Psu is the only part in your list i would downgrade slightly and not loose performance

this is my first build I tried to do as much research I could and came up with this (also the psu is a 750w because for some reason is like 10 us dollars cheaper than a 650w) any recommendations are highly greeted thanks

I recommend a different GPU. 1070 is fine (but you can find some 1070tis for under 400 USD now-a-days) but you should find one that does not have a "blower" style cooler. Sometimes these cards run hotter than open coolers (ones with two fans and an open shroud).

Get a better PSU, refer to this list to get a better one. Choose one that's atleast at Tier C.

 

Also with that budget on the cooler I'd recommend a Noctua NH-D15S instead. It performs better than most, if not all water coolers (except the custom ones) and it is cheaper as well.

 

For your peripherals I'd suggest getting a mechanical keyboard since they are wayy better. With that budget I'd get a Reddragon Vara K551/Kumara K552 (TKL) or a Magicforce 68/Magicforce 82. Lastly for the mouse, I'd check Rocket Jump Ninja's reviews to find a good one but if you do think that one is perfect for you, so be it.

This is the one I made but I'm sure someone else can provide a better one. I downgraded into a 1060 6GB because I couldn't get it to around 1000 USD
