Case not found in the list: https://www.amazon.de/Sharkoon-VG5-W-computer-Micro-ATX-Mini-ITX/dp/B015J8R1FY/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1468509597&sr=8-12&keywords=sharkoon
Purpose of the build
What can we NOT fiddle with in the build
I didn't understand what you are trying to say. is it good or not? any incompatibilities with the case?
purpose is gaming and browsing mainly and some editing.
budget is flexible.
Yes it looks fine. Your PSU is a little overkill, but it is fine. You would only save 20 bucks moving down to a 550w gold+ anyway.
how about the motherboard? I'm confused little about it
either H170 D3HP from Gigabyte or H170A Gaming PRO from MSI?
I like gigabyte because their products are reliable, and MSI is just marketing expert with bad quality products
I have used them all and they all do the job. It's all personal preference on the mobo. Look for the options you want. Do you want more usb ports? On board wifi? Heat sinks? Preferred bios? I prefer Asus myself.
but in terms of GAMING, is there a difference between MSI H170A Gaming PRO & Gigabyte H170 D3HP?
also, what is the difference between D3H & D3HP from Gigabyte?
The D3H is a microATX size board.
there is also an ATX size.
But, I cannot find the difference between D3H and D3HP except for the 3.1 USB
and I cannot find any real difference between D3HP and A Gaming PRO from MSI.
any expert ?
You could add a cheap 2TB HDD for archived storage.
But, I don't think I would ever need it, judging by the usage of my currents HDD, I have only spend 50GB out of 688. I could save the money to get the best SSD (Samsung) and also save a little for the GPU. what do you think ?
If you're not a heavy storage user then you're right :P It might be me then, coz I have 1TB of storage used in an external HDD atm lol
