Yep that's all done. I've ended up emailing the seller of the GPU to ask for any info. At this point I'm hoping that the HDMI port of the GPU does not work and I can simply buy a DV cable and use that instead.

Update: The headers were all inserted correctly since I got power to my PC and LED power but no Display. Also my screen is plugged into GPU not Mobo.

Do you remember where the POWER SW and HDD LED headers went?

Same MOBO and Case? Wow this could be something. My case does not have a Reset SW header, only a POWER SW and HDD LED. I'll make sure they are in the right spots, because indeed the manuals are terrible.

Great!

Well thank you so much for the help. It's great to have someone I can directly ask questions to etc.

Thank you for the thorough reply! I learned a lot from it.

Your new part list seems great. I do have another question. Would the Corsair 100R case work with these parts instead of the P300? From what I can see the Corsair 100R has one rear fan so I would need to buy that extra case fan as well, but I just like the look of it better. In fact, I'm still indecisive between 3 cases so could a Corsair 270R work too?

Other than that I might chuck in a 1tb HDD since it's only 70 bucks but if I can't afford that I'll just buy the SSD for now.

Prices are horrible indeed :( Thanks for the part list, but I do have a few questions.

  1. 16gb ram? Is that necessary?
  2. Why 256gb SSD and not 120? I'd save around 50 bucks and I don't think I use that much storage.
  3. Why not a 1060 6gb? It's only 40 more bucks, it also gives me NVIDIA Shadowplay etc which is useful for recording etc etc.
  4. Is that PSU necessary? I understand a good PSU is very important but that's a lot of money.

I made my own part list, is this any good?

Cheers! And any recommendation for a PSU? Does it have to be modular?

What about a 1060 3gb and a Ryzen 5 1500X? I think I could just afford that, along with 8g ram, 120ssd, 1tbHDD.
