You could probably get a better psu for that money, especially considering all of newegg's pre-black friday deals, don't get an armor card as they have cooling issues, and your build does not need that many fans. The ones that come pre-installed with the case will do, but if you're adding them for aesthetics why not, even tho you could use the extra money for a better gpu, cpu, or psu

The ARMOR MK2 solved the cooling issue. The ARMOR, however, should be avoided.

I agree, the PSU isn't the greatest at all. You can currently get a CX450 for 27.99$ which should do the job better.

I also agree that he probably doesn't need the fans.

This should be good for about 1000$. Feel free to switch to a 1070 if it's too expensive, however.

I would go with Arctic MX4 thermal paste instead of Arctic Silver 5. It's non-conductive, doesn't cure and it has better-similar cooling temps. You can find it for like $4-$6 as well.
