  1. Ok, so this is my first gaming build. Theoretically, I am going to build a computer by the end of the year, and I have an 800$ budget. Yes, I know prices will change and new items will be release by then, but I am still in need of a base. So far this is what I have.

    1st Build

    Hello, I am planning on building my first computer soon. 800 budget (can go over a little, includes os and monitor, max is 900) I will be using this computer mostly to game, right now I have parts worth 1000, so I would like to decrease that cost if possible without losing too much performance. The Build I have selected comes to just over 1,060$... Some parts may be incompatible, please let me know, and some might not be worth it. As you can see, I went with a red theme. (Would've went with blue but I already have red headphones and such.) CPU- (I would prefer to have a cpu that I can overclock, but with my budget it would be challenging.) https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xwhj4D/intel-cpu-bx80662i56500 Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor Cooler- If I don't have a cpu that can be overclocked, should I just go with the stock? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/hmtCmG/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2 Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler MOBO- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/rLs8TW/msi-motherboard-h110mgaming MSI H110M Gaming Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard OR https://pcpartpicker.com/product/hMvZxr/gigabyte-motherboard-gah110ma Gigabyte GA-H110M-A Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard RAM- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/8hM323/kingston-memory-hx421c14fb8 Kingston HyperX Fury Black 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory Storage-https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MwW9TW/western-digital-internal-hard-drive-wd10ezex Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive AND https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ZdNp99/ocz-internal-hard-drive-arc10025sat3120g OCZ ARC 100 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive GPU- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/JVWrxr/msi-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-gaming-x-video-card-geforce-gtx-1060-gaming-x-6g MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB GAMING X Video Card Case- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tD38TW/nzxt-case-cas340wbr1 NZXT S340 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower Case PSU- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/zNK7YJ/evga-power-supply-100b10500kr EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply OS- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/wtgPxr/microsoft-os-kw900140 Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit Case Fans- (Might not need, input?) https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XD9KHx/corsair-case-fan-co9050006ww Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition (2-Pack) 37.9 CFM 120mm Fans Monitor- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WBw323/asus-monitor-vx228h Asus VX228H 21.5" 60Hz Monitor Keyboard- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/KWGj4D/cooler-master-keyboard-sgb3020kkmf1us Cooler Master OCTANE Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse TC- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/6RrG3C/arctic-silver-thermal-paste-as535g Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 3.5g Thermal Paste

    Thanks! I was planning on building this in a year or two so I will most likely sell this computer like you stated. Thank you!

    Help Designing eGPU

    So I'm planning on building an egpu setup due to the fact that I want desktop performance, while I am unable to build a desktop. My main concern is of the thunderbolt port and jack, which is obviously superior to the express card. It is my goal to use my current laptop (Lenovo y50, https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-15-6-Inch-Gaming-Laptop-59425944/dp/B00K6ZIMPE) however, it doesn't have a port for thunderbolt. Are there any adapters that I can use? Below are what I'm planning on using, please provide input on what I should change- GPU-EVGA GTX1070, Founders Edition, https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Support-Graphics-08G-P4-6173-KR/dp/B01GLRX81I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1476304953&sr=8-1&keywords=gtx%2Bgeforce%2B1070&th=1 PSU (I am looking for a cheaper one, I do plan on overclocking), https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Factor-Modular-Certified-Warranty/dp/B01CGGOXWQ?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAJ2RTWSYJUOAO3DIA&tag=bom_tomshardware-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B01CGGOXWQ&tzd=18&ascsubtag=[site|thaus[cat|[art|[pid|B01CGGOXWQ[tid|14763061341006985[bbc|LESPRIX Dock, Akitio Thunder2, https://www.amazon.com/Akitio-AMZ-T2PC-TIA-AKTU-Thunder2-PCIe/dp/B00LTAUTHE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1476304543&sr=8-1&keywords=akitio+thunder2+pcie+box And so far that is what I have, I just recently started researching and I heard that this place was the best for input. I also want an external monitor and possible an external keyboard, but I am still thinking about that due to budget. Please provide input on what I should do, thank you!
