This is for gaming.

Thanks in advance

  1. What is your actual budget?

  2. I recently bought a I7-7700K and am very happy. I almost bought Ryzen for my first AMD in 15 years.

    You didn't give a budget but said money is object so...

    ASrock mainboard (My fav brand) Models vary by location so go with one you can afford where you live.
    Corsair 3000mhz ddr4 16GB (I have 32GB of the same and it's solid at 3000mhz no prob)
    Intel I5 or I7 (only part I would consider buying used if cheap)
    Reuse your CPU fan if you can to save money as long as its good.
    I like your GPU choice. I have a 1060 6gb

    You may have to get a new optical drive. ATAPI? Really?

    Sell your spare parts on an auction site and get 125-150usd back. At least I would get that where I live.

  6. AFAIK it's been sorted, if you're unsure or unhappy, you can drop the speed ( and save a few coppers ).
