You have a good cpu and alot of ram but your video card sucks. Unless you don't want to play games. 

I assume he has that gpu already.

Don't use the GT 730, use the integrated graphics.

 

No SSD? System will be slow as hell.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

There are better CPU choices out there, and that motherboard doesn't allow overclocking, which also makes that AIO kind of worthless, as your CPU will be stuck at stock speeds.

That GT 730 is probably slower than integrated Intel graphics.

Also, you need an SSD, at least for your OS.

What exactly would be the use case for your PC?


Desktop: Intel Core i9-9900K | be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 | ASUS Strix Z390-F | Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB 3000MHz | Intel 660p 1TB | Samsung 860 EVO 500GB | Western Digital Green 2TB | Corsair RM650x | EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER XC Ultra | Fractal Design Define R6 Blackout

Laptop:  Apple MacBook Pro 13" 2018 (i5-8259U | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD)

Peripherals: Steelseries Rival 600 & Logitech MX Master 3 | CM Storm Quickfire Ultimate (Cherry MX Blue) | Sennheiser Game One | BenQ BL2420PT

In the case of Intel, only Z series motherboards allow overclocking. For example, for a 9600KF, you would need either a Z390 board or a Z370 with a BIOS update.

This is what I'm looking at for my first PC, does it look like anything is missing?

 

looks good so far, however for 160$ you can get a 1650 super, which will destroy the 1050 ti. Even if you don't use it for gaming, if you sort on PC Part picker there is one for literally a dollar cheaper, so why not?
