Trying to keep the build under £1000.
The monitor is definitely a bit overkill and you can probably spend less on it. The 1060 is no where near capable of pushing 240FPS. I have a 1060 6GB and I have to play on lower settings to achieve 144 on my monitor.
I would personally spend a bit more on the PSU for something like a Seasonic or EVGA.
Hmm, I'm not too sure what monitors are good for 144hz? I know this 240hz monitor is amazing and will be long-lasting. Do you have suggestions?
Hmm, what are the benefits of a more expensive PSU?
Any of these monitors would be great choices.
Spending a bit more on the PSU would give you reliability mostly. The PSU is never something to skip out on just because it powers everything. I'd be hesitant to match a cheap PSU to a system that costs 1000+. If the PSU potentially fails, it has the possibility to bring other components down with it - if not everything at once.
No problem! I forgot to mention that you would also get a fully modular PSU by spending a bit more meaning the wires aren't soldered in and you only plug in what you need to. It results in a cleaner look and adds a bit more longevity out of it in case you need to replace/add/remove cables over time.
Isn't the RX 580 worse value though and that inbuilt wifi adapter doesn't seem as good, but I agree with a better PSU choice.
The RX 580 performs similarly to the GTX 1060 (albeit being slightly more power-hungry), but you can get inexpensive monitors with adaptive sync
I would change the PSU. You can go for the Cooler Master - MasterWatt 550W which is decent, but since you have money to spare ideally you'll want a Corsair TXM 650w so that's what I recommend.
I would also change case, as all of that is going to be acrylic but cases are subjective I know so nothing wrong with your choice. Just this is what I would go for / recommend any of these options: Option1 Option2 Option3 Option4. Personally I think I would rather have a small, subtle but nice case with good airflow and reputation (such as option 4) than an off brand rgb over the top acrylic everywhere case.
I'd like a red and black case so I thought this would be a good choice
Look at these https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tD38TW/nzxt-case-cas340wbr1 and https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ptKcCJ/phanteks-p300-tempered-glass-blackred-atx-mid-tower-case-ph-ec300ptg_br. They have tempered glass too.
They don't come with fans and are more expensive, but I'll have a look! Thanks.
