Built this PC a while back without a GPU, because prices were so dang high. Used integrated graphics at first, then found a 1060 6gb on ebay for 250. Went with the 8600k for it's 6 cores and got it open box at microcenter for 200.
Gets great fps rates on just about any 1080p game, and I will probably eventually adventure into VR.
Healthy 4.7GHZ Overclock on my 8600k - No OC on my 1060. Will soon get an ssd.
(Pictures taken before 1060 was put in)
Edit: Adding pictures with 1060. I know it is a semi-modular PSU, so the cabling for the GPU looks kinda nasty. Kill me now. If I were to build another PC for the same budget, I'd go for https://pcpartpicker.com/list/cx3KpG
+1 for the cat in the MOBO box?
PS: Find the spidget finner in the pics.
Great processor for the price. Have it OCed to 4.7ghz stably through MSI command center. Runs fast and (relatively) cool.
Amazing little air cooler--performs about as well as most liquid coolers and keeps my 8600k at 4.7ghz
Nothing special, but the MSI software is great, and it OCs well.
Nothing special, just a 16gb kit.
Slow, but I had it in the basement and don't have an ssd yet.
Great card for CHEEEEEEP (relatively, I got it used). Plays 1080p Really well.
Decent case, nothing super fancy, got it on sale at newegg.
Go full modular. The cable management is kinda crappy bc each cable needs to have lots of connections since you can only put in 4 cables.
They are fans and they are LED (Mine are actually blue but they didn't have those on PCpartpicker)
