  1. Don't get an AMD processor. I'd much rather get an i5 6500 and a b150 motherboard since it's a locked processor. Also, the 1060 will use a lot less power; you could even squeeze a 1070 into that build if you wanted to.

    This seems pretty balanced to me and well within your budget

  3. Intel and Nvidia
  4. Don't buy Z170 mobo..go with H170 or B150..and for the memory go with 2133 speed..that would be enough and maximum supported..if u go with 2400 your system gonna downgrade it to 2133 so its no use..and get 600W 80+ gold certified PSU (better be safe)

    Processor is good for gaming..but if you want to play hard I'll recommend the following:
    Processor Intel i5 6600 (as it is not unlocked (K) processor no need for after market cooler)
    H110/H170 Motherboard
    2 x 4gb DDR4 Memory (Speed 2133)
    128gb SSD for OS
    1TB HDD
    GTX 1070 (Cheapest available)
    550-600W 80+ gold PSU (Seasonic, EVGA, Corsair)
    Case-it's your Choice and Preference.

    And forget about AMD.. ;)

    Go the Intel route. You'll get more years out of it. The FX8350 and its platform are on the precipice of being replaced entirely.

    if you're going to get an i5 and a 1060, there is no reason to get a loaded Z170 board. i would go with the H170 chipset, as it is the best bang for the buck in a midrange build.


    Z170 = enthusiast
    H170 = H for Home
    B150 = B for Business


    Absolutely go for the i5 and not the FX. If you want a locked CPU (non overclocking), go for the 6500 instead. The extra few hundred Mhz is noticable.

    Of the 1060's, the 6GB model is the way to go, not the 3GB one.
