Don't pay for windows from their site, get a cheap used key online from cdkeys or something.

 

I believe the Corsair CM550X is rated higher on the PSU tier list than that EVGA power supply, and should be a similar price, so I'd get that instead.

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

Looks decent. I'd spend a little more money on your peripherals though, you interact with them every time you use the computer; don't cheap out.

Welcome to the forum.

If you're not going to buy it legitimately, don't pay for it at all. You don't really lose anything.

I agree with this. 

 

May I suggest these two if you're on a budget. They will last you years and will be WAY better once you dive deeper into the PC world. You'll be wanting to do more later on with your mouse and keyboard and these will be ready to go.

I should add, don't buy anything until Black Friday ;)

One can usually net significantly better stuff for the same cost.

Looks pretty good so far. Theoretically, you could replace the 500GB WD Blue SSD with a Samsung 970 EVO since the price is very similar, it's just that with Samsung you would have got a faster drive, but that's really not essential.

I personally made very good experiences with Samsung, in terms of reliability and performance.

Oh for sure, the K55 is already a great price, I'd imagine at least a 10-15 dollar drop on it, or maybe higher on other Corsair boards. 

 

The g502 isn't too bad to get right now. I actually posted it under the Hot Deals section earlier since it's at its all time low (there have been a few other months where it dropped it to 39.99 but it's normally always 49.99 or higher)

Yeah $38 is pretty hard to beat. Almost considering getting it for my dad, though he likes gaming with...trackball mice.

Once you get deeper into all of it you'll appreciate the ones I linked you.

Haha it's pretty nuts to watch. He finds it easier on his wrists or something.

He doesn't really play FPS games though, mostly RPG.
