You have to link the permalink on pcpp, not the URL bar, otherwise it will just take us to the website and not your list

just added a pick to make it simpler

You might have some issues fitting the RAM into your Micro ATX motherboard with that cooler. You also might want to replace the 960 with a RX 570 or RX 580

If you can swing it get the 2600. No point in having an APU if you have a discrete card.

The 1600 and 2600 would both work for this system

Don't bother with that cooler, the stock cooler is fine

You might as well get a 1600 or something similar if you already have a graphics card

 

How much do you want to spend?

You can easily OC the 1600 with a B350 or above board

You should stick with the stock cooler, the T2 isn't gonna give you anything special. Otherwise, it seems you're definitely doing well with a very minimal budget. Quality PSU, high frequency ram, small SSD to be supplemented later with HDD

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

What about a case? I didn't see you list one so I didn't either.
