It's been a while since my last PC, I'd appreciate any opinions or problems you can find! I'll use this for gaming and coding, and (don't hate me) I'm having cyberpowerpc build it.

Thank you for your input!

That's uh, quite the build. It's definitely one of the more powerful builds on this site. I never used or know anyone that used a Thermaltake PSU, so I'm not sure if it's a sketchy one or not... But in all honesty, you should build the pc yourself. Its cooler... and more personalised you might say.

I really wish I could... But I don't live in the US, and it'd be a nightmare if a part required exchanging for any reason. It's easier to have someone else build and burn-in.

Thermaltake Tough Power is good so do not worry.

On another note, for your intended uses (gaming and coding), this is just soo overkill and could be achieved using less money.

Where do you see possible savings? I'm aiming for a pretty future-proof build, something I don't have to change for years, but that allows me to upgrade after that. Maybe that 10-core is waaaay cheaper 5 years from now, or a second card for sli...

Oh, didn't realise that you lived outside of the U.S., I understand now, but yeah... that's a really overkill build for now lol.

Well, for starters, if you do not really need the H440 to have a razer logo, you can save a bit.

The 950 pro M.2 is sooooooo pricey, I promise you will not be able to tell the difference when using a $60 ssd.

You reaaaaaaaaaally do not need that many cores. I would argue a i7-6700k would suffice.

That is also taking in consideration sli, and in that matter I say you go for it later if you need it.

Also, a less expensive motherboard.
