Help on first PC build


Hello everyone,


I am currently (once again) thinking about building my first PC.

I made list of parts, but am still unsure about some (the ones with more than one option) and need advice.



CPU: - Intel Core i7 8700 (~348,00 €) or

          - Intel Core i5 8400 (~209,00 €)


CPU cooler: - Noctua NH-L9x65 (~45,00 €)

                     - Noctua NH-L9i (~40,00 €)


GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition (~289,00 € - would be added further down the line, e.g. late 2019)


Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix B360-I (~135,00€)


Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 1x8GB DDR4 2400, CL14-16-16-31 (~60,00 €, will be doubled further down the line


Storage: - Samsung 860 Evo 500GB (~70,00 €)

               - Samsung 970 Evo 500GB (~110,00 €)


PSU: Corsair SF450 80PLUS Gold 450W SFX12V (~70,00 €)


Case: Loque Ghost S1 (216 €)



Online List: https://geizhals.de/?cat=WL-1060903 (Location Germany)


I will use the System for light to medium gaming as well as some photo/video editing and maybe music production further down the line. I would prefer not having to upgrade the CPU and Motherboard in quite a few years, so future-proofing is quite important to me. 

Also, I have quite a liking for simple and clean builds that do not have to be large. I know the case I have chosen is beyond the what you would expect from this budget, but I really like it.


Thank you very much for your help.

Don't get the FE 1060. Get a blower style RX 580 instead.
