What's up peeps, hope that all has been well with you all!

 

I'm finally back in the market for some PC upgrades and I'd love to get your advice if you have suggestions/recommendations. I'm looking to get EVERYTHING up to date in my system and do it right this time (by that I mean make this look sexy, I'm looking at you cable management  :wallbash:).

 

So currently, I pretty much have taken the "Professional Build" from KBMod's April Build Guide and applied it to my system, though I'd like advice on any changes that you'd recommend. I'll comment my concerns below for specific parts that I had in mind.

 

My Current Build:

My Upgraded Build (Planning Phase):

PC Part Picker Link For Upgrade: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/MhCwwP

 

*Update 1: I've updated my list with some updates:

  • Changed: Corsair H110i was swapped to the Corsair H115i
  • Changed: G.Skill Ripjaws 4 Series 16gb DDR4-2400 was changed to G.Skill Ripjaws 4 Series 16gb DDR4-3000
  • Added: Western Digital Black Series 3tb 7200RPM HDD
  • Added: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500gb

When are you going to stop milking us for our knowledge and play some games with us, eh? 

 

Build looks good to me. G.Skill is great budget ram, but you don't need 32gb. 16gb is fine. 

 

3tb Black

 

Personally, I like 1 SSD for OS and Installed Programs, 1 SSD for games, and then HHD's for general storage.

Good call on the storage, I'll do that for sure then. I'll check in more often and see what you are all up to :P\

I thought the forums were a little bare and could use some Mackey. <3

Check out the Samsung 950Pro SSD.  It's a really hot SSD.  Makes mincemeat out of the SATA SSDs and isn't crazily priced.  a 500gbb is only around $330 or so
