  2. I would suggest a DVD drive for $20. It is very handy for installing software.

    Plus you will need stuff like thermal paste, cables, keyboard, mouse, speakers, and monitor

  3. I have items from the my current pc like mouse keyboard and rest: pate i`ll get from the processor
    HDD external: Toshiba Canvio Basics 1TB Portable External Hard Drive 2.5 Inch USB 3.0
    HDD: WD 1TB Desktop SATA Hard Drive
    SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB 2.5 inch Solid State Drive
    Monitor: Acer XZ350CU 35 inch Curved Ultra-Wide Full HD, VA LED Gaming Monitor with 144 Hz 2560x1080
    CD/DVD: Samsung 24x Retail SATA DVD Writer
    so what i really need os motherboard, new case( the old not good people say) and eventually new PSU or/and cooler of needed if the old ones are outdated.
    thanks again

  4. Gigabyte has got the best gaming motherboard in the Z270 line in my eyes as the hardcore rpg/rts gamer and IT specialist. I have almost similar system and I use it too. ASrock is pretty good but ASUS is better, and Gigabyte beats the ASUS many times. MSI was never being an option for me (maybe the norm)

    For i7 K series, you're better to have liquid cooling system (K releases sort of heat). Your power supply unit can be considered as not really that much powerful to feed this beast. Try something better for PSU mate. It can ruin your system to the stone age. Good luck!
