First time building pc

Hi all,

 

would this set be considered good, for what I think is a mediocre build..

 

 

CPU:Intel - Core i5-8400 2.8GHz 6-Core Processor
MOBO: Gigabyte - B360M DS3H Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
RAM: Crucial - Ballistix Sport LT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
SSD: Kingston - A400 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
HDD: Seagate - Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
CASE: Corsair - 200R ATX Mid Tower Case
GPU: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC GAMING Video Card
PSU: EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
CPU C.: Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

 

The goals are; first easy build: (would the case be easy to build in? first I was thinking full tower, but I have gone cheaper)

Quietness (compared to off the shelf machines...) (thats why I do include a CPU cooler, but I dunno if the case + cpu coolor + gpu achieves this goal...)

Would the 550W be enough?

 

It would be for playing not very heavy games (BFA...) at high(est) quality but low frames rates (I am very used to 30 fps :p)

 

I did use PC part picker but I have to buy it in the netherlands... I got 1100 euro for this with OS (usb) - is that good/reasonable value?

 

Am I missing something?

 

Thank you!

Earlier version that I mocked up where 1800 euro at max, but that we consider to high for this "trial".

So 1100 with OS i was quite happy about, it is 100 more than the most expensive off the shelve we have ever bought..

550W should be enough, and the hardware is well balanced. Also, you can get a Windows key for like 5 Euros on eBay.

Ok thank you,

Both with windows and office the licensing of it so anoying for me, having always bought of the shelf so when I somehow can buy a full license then I just do I to hopefully not get any crap situations later on or with useability or bloat or whatever.... Because of that I mostly do not consider those costs as part of the pc.

i.e. for my laptop I also bought the licenses at those prices because w/e :(

And ebay we dont really use unfortunately :P

 

edit: so that is 120-130 per license

Yeah, but with the 6 month Paypal return policy, it should be fine.  And if you make your own boot drive there won't be any bloat.  (:

Is that installing a OEM on your own boot?

It depends on what type of key you buy.  They have OEM and Standard keys.
