First build with Coffee Lake

HarryPNess
 Share

By the end of the year my goal is to build my first gaming PC. I have a few things in mind. I want a mid size case, I need a good PSU that doesn't involve water because I don't trust myself with water and a gaming PC, I want the case to be black and have white lights. I'm in the US. These are the parts that I have chosen so far.

What's your budget? A bit hard to know what kind of PSU and case you want. 

 

The Seasonic Focus Plus Gold is on a good sale atm. $55 for the 650W version, which is plenty, unless you plan to get an SLI setup.

There are lots of black cases on the market, and you can add a white LED strip if you want. 

Meshify C, Define C, 400C, 600C, S340 Elite, P400(/S) and Enthoo Pro M are some good ~$100 cases.

I wouldn't want to spend more than 100$ for the PSU and no more than 150 on case.

With a case do you want a side panel, do you want tempered glass or acrylic. Do you want to prioritize noise, temps or cable management? Personally I have a corsair 400c and I like everything about it except the lack of cable management space in the back as I have a lot in my computer. I really like the meshify C for a great mid tower however if you want your system to be quiet its not a very good option.

I'll be the first one laughing when you lose your i7 and 1080 Ti because it seemed somehow smart to save 50 bucks after already buying overpriced stuff on the one hardware that can kill stuff in the system.

He can get some good PSUs for that price, though

Still a ludicrous thing to say, truth be told.

 

Either ways that offer on Seasonic is a great pick.

lots of good $50-60 units after rebates rn, and even without counting rebates there's still the CX/M which won't break his rig.

That's what I decided to create. Any suggestions? I don't want RGB Ram.
