Thank the lords I've had a post!! I might of broked a system fan header but other then that, I'm all good to go! I feel so acomplished
DIY-BG01 from DIY PC. I got the gpu installed after reinstalling the mobo. Now I just need to finish building it.
Reinstalling the mobo, everything fits fine now. I gotta finish building later today. I hope it will post but highly unlikely comparing to the amount of things I probably already broke. Ill update you!
Expect that was my issue. They were not lined up with the holes. Yet the IO looked fine. I had to push on the mobo to make them line
Alright. Ill go ahead and reinstall the mobo. Should I be using all the standoffs available? Installing the mobo was the hardest part for me so I definitely did something wrong there.

Yes I do plan on upgrading to 2 sticks of ram eventually. That is why I didn't go with 2x4. Thank you for noticing though!
xD thank you for telling me about this joke!
xD even I think that is overkill and I've never built before (sarcasm possibly??)
I'll try to take pics along the journey and get a completed build into PCPP! This is gonna be fun!
I totally agree! It looks amazing!
xD. I hope I won't forget!
Yeah, I did realize that I was overspending on the toolkit but that was after I actually bought it. Plus I already have all my parts so now I cannot put money in to upgrade one of the parts. I do really like the toolkit though. It's my style.
Yeah, that's the reason why I picked it up lol. 1. It looks super cool 2. It has the bendy thingy 3. It is magnetic
Thank you for the advice dude! The reason I picked up the toolkit was that I just love the look and I won't ever need anything else again. Does the PSU have to be plugged in when I touch it? Also, can I still touch the case even when parts are inside? Just want to make sure before I do something wrong.
Thank you for the advice!

What do you think?
I plan on adding another 8 gig stick of ram later. Right now, I need to keep costs low. Let me see if I can find a pretty good & cheap SSD for 250 GB. Thanks!
That's fine! I'm thinking about purchasing a RX580 anyway! Thanks for asking me!
Alright, thanks! Gonna go for the RX580!
Yeah, it's looking better to get the RX580. Thanks for the input!
Thanks! I'm gonna go ahead and get the RX580. The lower price and higher VRAM really makes me feel more excited about it. I found a few things online saying that the RX580 performs better in DX12? Is that true because that is a major thing that I would prefer!
Hello! Confirm 270 shipped? I would love to buy if you could hold it for a week - 2 weeks!
I am still interested! Has your item been sold yet? Just sold my laptop. Gotta wait about a week or two though till it gets received by the customer and payment is received.
Yeah, I saw that earlier. Thanks for offering! But I need someone to hold it for 1 - 4 weeks. I need to sell my current laptop first. Thanks anyway!
Well, I'm trying to save for a PC and adding a SSD defeats that purpose but on the other hand, it has a SSHD and on ebay other same laptops with 8 GB ram are going for $550 with shipping excluded. So, I think this is a good point. The only same laptop on ebay right now cheaper then mine is going for $500 but that is auction with 60 + bids and 8 GB of ram.
Thanks! Changed it to a ASUS motherboard. I think the MSI one had 2 ram slots. This one has 4.
I currently work with a ASUS FX504. 8300H CPU with 16 GB of ram. 1050 2 GB. What lets me down the most is the 2 GB VRAM. I need to focus on the GPU without bottlenecking the CPU. Before adding 8gb of ram into the system, I was using Xplane 11 with 8gb of ram. I kept on maxing out the 8gb.
Now here is the thing, I plan on upgrading the ram to 16 GB eventually after I build it. I get the higher ram speed but shouldn't I just stick with 1 stick for now? Thank you for the info on the CPU. Will probably go with the 1600. Do I really need the SSD? I feel like that might be of my lower priority as I cannot go above my budget at all. the ADATA - Ultimate on the other hand as I look at it now, might be worth it but is it actually worth it? And what about the motherboard? Is it worth it to go below an X370 (I think it is) and get a B350? Thanks!
Alright, thanks! I will make sure to open it up and check before buying extra parts.
no its not a AMD cpu... As I said, its a 8th GEN Intel i5 and I want to upgrade to a 8th GEN Intel i7
Alright thanks, guys!
Yeah, I don't see it worth it to cut the cost of about 10 dollars and lose a whole bunch of functionality and future upgradability.
Ok, thank you for the information! I will take this into account.
If you are power hungry...
Thanks for the information. I am gonna tweak up your part list a bit but it helps give me a good idea!
Considering the prices of GPU and RAM, the fact that you don't game a lot on it and that you like the movability of a laptop... Just go with a laptop. The 7700HQ will most likely outperform the 1600 (have not done research, can someone confirm?) and buying a good monitor can get a bit pricey. Your best bet is to just get a laptop.
If you want, you can get a GTX 1070 for $399 (I think) from Nvidia themselves. They are founders edition but they are white and you can even get a GTX 1070 ti or 1080 for the price you are paying for that EVGA 1070.
