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.
what games do you play if you play light games like csgo stick with that monitor but if you play more demanding games go with max 144hr monitor
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.
