First Build for 1080p

PalkiaRock484

Hi! I am building my first PC for 1080p gaming at 30-60 fps. I don't care that much about settings as long as they're decent. Tell me if anything sucks or if there is something better for the money. Thanks!

You can get a slightly cheaper psu that's just as good: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750gts3x

Other than that, you're good.

Personally I would maybe swap out the 16gb for 8gb and then upgrade R9 380 to R9 380x.

Read my mind. Or a used 290 but those might be risky.

Sig under construction.

I'll consider it, but I don't see myself doing anything crazy with it. 

Anything in particular I could upgrade with standard atx that would be worth the money?

Micro ATX supports two-way graphics and quad-channel RAM. Why would you need anything larger unless you were doing quad graphics (which you shouldn't) or had piles of PCIE devices, which I doubt the OP has? MATX is plenty upgradable for almost everyone.

Project White Lightning (My ITX Gaming PC): Core i5-4690K | CRYORIG H5 Ultimate | ASUS Maximus VII Impact | HyperX Savage 2x8GB DDR3 | Samsung 850 EVO 250GB | WD Black 1TB | Sapphire RX 480 8GB NITRO+ OC | Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ITX | Corsair AX760 | LG 29UM67 | CM Storm Quickfire Ultimate | Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum | HyperX Cloud II | Logitech Z333

Benchmark Results: 3DMark Firestrike: 10,528 | SteamVR VR Ready (avg. quality 7.1) | VRMark 7,004 (VR Ready)

 

Other systems I've built:

Core i3-6100 | CM Hyper 212 EVO | MSI H110M ECO | Corsair Vengeance LPX 1x8GB DDR4  | ADATA SP550 120GB | Seagate 500GB | EVGA ACX 2.0 GTX 1050 Ti | Fractal Design Core 1500 | Corsair CX450M

Core i5-4590 | Intel Stock Cooler | Gigabyte GA-H97N-WIFI | HyperX Savage 2x4GB DDR3 | Seagate 500GB | Intel Integrated HD Graphics | Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 | be quiet! Pure Power L8 350W

 

I am not a professional. I am not an expert. I am just a smartass. Don't try and blame me if you break something when acting upon my advice.

GPU brand? ASUS Strix: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814126048&cm_re=380x-_-14-126-048-_-Product

RAM brand? Anything that isn't super shady (Kingston, Corsair, G.Skill, etc.)

I don't think I'll need anything more than the onboard ethernet but thanks though!

Would any of you recommend going for a 212 evo or would the stock cooler be good enough.

(I'm not oc in any way shape or form)
