Build was completed in October of 2016. I just never got around to making this build page.
All parts were brand spanking new.
Notes on How I Bought the Parts
I would stalk www.Jet.com for cheap prices and use the 15% off first 3 orders coupon. I believe it was up to $30.00 maximum discount back in August 2016 through October 2016. Now they changed it to maximum discount of $20.00, tough sh-t huh? I used this promotion for the graphics card, CPU, and also a monitor which is not listed.
I also used the BACK2SCHOOL02, BACK2SCHOOL03, BACK2SCHOOL04 promos (now expired I believe) for $10.00 off $35.00 or more. Used this for the cheaper components like the SSD, HDD, PSU, case, etc. This gives a better discount for components priced between $35.00 and $65.00, yeet.
I will say that I most likely probably without some doubt almost certainly if not definitely had "multiple friends" that ordered parts for me. Therefore, what I did was perfectly legal and abides by Jet.com Terms and Conditions. This is because "they" ordered the parts for "themselves" and then sold them to me afterwards. Jet.com is somewhat smart and realizes when you use the same billing/shipping address or credit card.
I think I did a pretty good job finding these parts for a relatively cheap price. Especially since I bought the MSI GTX 1060 shortly after release (bought it early September).
The prices listed for the respective parts are PRE-TAX meaning they do not include 7% sales tax. Shipping was free on all parts.
I also researched a lot about the respective parts before buying. On notable thing I researched was the efficiency of the PSU. The EVGA 600B was found to be most efficient for my build (there were graphs for many different PSUs indicating there efficiencies for a given power draw).
Didn't want to overclock my CPU or anything, what I have is enough for my needs. Overclocked CPU would require me to spend a good amount more on a MOBO and a K series Intel CPU which I did not find worth mymoney and time learning how to properly over clocking.
