Hiya, I'll be quick. Here are the components:

Intel - Core i3-6100 3.7GHz Dual-Core Processor

Asus - H170-PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

Kingston - HyperX Fury Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory

Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

EVGA - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB SC GAMING ACX 2.0 Video Card

Corsair - Builder 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

Microsoft - Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit

~PC is currently around £500~

Are these parts compatible? + Can you suggest a suitable case? Thanks!

  1. They're compatible, but need changes.
    Change the i3 for the pentium g4560.
    Change motherboard to a b250
    Try to fit in a 120 gb SSD
    Switch the power supply to a better one like a CXM, Evga G2 Seasonic etc
    And windows to regular windows 10. Nobody needs the Pro version

  2. Thanks for answering ~ The I3 has come down in price to something equivalent to the g4560, should I still swap? Also, what's superior about the b250 for this build?

    If the i3 price is that close to the g4560 then it's worth getting. Also there's really not much superior about the b250 but what's the point in getting a 170 when your system doesn't require it?

  5. How much is that h170.

    There are cheap z170 at £85, worth considering if you plan to upgrade your CPU in future
