Hi there. The i5 8600k and the 1060 6GB will be a perfect fit and there should not be any bottlenecking at all. I made a part list with all the parts that you need.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
The H7 from cryorig is a perfect cooler for the price and will cool the CPU well. If you want to overclock you probably want a beefier cooler though.. but on stock speeds the h7 will do just fine. the Z370 Motherboard from MSI looks solid and a has plenty of features so basically everything you need. It even has a M.2 slot if you want to add an NVME SSD later on. For memory I selected a 2x8GB kit from corsair. 16GB is the sweetspot and will be enough for quite some time. As The SSD i went with a Western Digital 250GB SSD. The new 3d-nand from WD are really good and have a bigger lifespan than other SSDs. The 2TB HDD from seagate is pretty standard and 7200Rpm. For mass storage and some games that are bigger. The MSI 1060 is currently the cheapest one and will do the job very nicely. performance-wise all 1060 6GBs perform the same. The case from fractal is a very nice one with tempered glass and it has great airflow so your parts get cooled very nicely. the PSU from seasonic is perfect since it has 620W and fully modular. So enough wattage if you want to add a higher end GPU later on. and of course a windows 10 license. if you have any questions let me know :D
Hi, thank you so much for the detailed explanation. If I don't overclock. Is i5-8400 and H370 Gaming Plus Mother board going to be a good option? I see there is a deal on newegg that i5-8400 + H370 Gaming Plus = $250.
Yeah that would be enough.. but the 8600k would give you better performance though.. which motherboard is it? if the motherboard is any good this might be good deal though
The motherboard is MSI - H370 GAMING PLUS ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Go for it ;) the i5 8400 is still quite a good CPU and will be good for many years ;)
Thank you so much. Placing the order :D
what would you recomend for a good system for xplane 11, im learning to fly planes atm and the instructor recomended getting a pc and xplane 11 and controls.
Sure :D what is your budget?
Under $2000 but less is best haha
Im not sure if that just replyed but $2000, but the less the beter haha
Hi dude :D this would be a nice build. The i7 8700k is the best gaming CPU atm and with its 6 cores it will handle everything you throw at it. The quad lumi cooler is a decent good looking cooler with LEDs. Will cool the CPU nicely on stock speeds. If you want to OC the CPU I would get a bit of a beefier one. but on stock speeds the quad lumi will do just fine. As for memory the corsair kit is just a standard 16GB and is the perfect amount for a gaming PC. The Asus Z370e has everything you need. even wifi connection if you desire to use them. As for storage I selected a 500GB NVME SSD from Western digital. it is super super fast and wont let ya down. Install the OS on it so the PC boots up faster. And for mass storage a 3TB HDD from seagate. The videocard is a gtx 1080 from EVGA. this card is super powerful and will handle anything you throw at it. Case is the meshify C. great buld quality and airflow. PSU is from seasonic. it is fully modular and gold rated. 650w should be enough. You still need to add a windows 10 license though. if you have questions let me know.
Thanks mate! I really appreciate your help.
Interesting build :D. Wonder if wildstar will be good to play with this build :)
You actually have bottlenecking here.
between which components?
