    is this custom pc better?

    Hi again,

    See previous question from here: hotukdeals.com/tag/ask…340

    Following some suggestions, this is slightly more expensive (1723) but i changed something (it still is a pc for gaming).

    Honestly, i have no intention to overclock it, so if you think something can be tuned down a little, just tell me, im no expert.

    everything is perfect I build excly same system last week it's beast but if ur not over-clocking then going with k processor is waste of money, go with none k and Asus maximus gaming pro the money u Wil save u can get 1080 instead of 1070

    Way too much

    I have the same processor
    8GB ddr4 ram corsair vengeance
    120gb ssd
    evga 80+ 600w power supply
    gigabytes z170-hd3p mobo
    24x dual layer DVD writer
    Dragon midi gaming case

    how much do you think that cost?

    I then added extra hard drives, operating system and graphics card.

    Its so much cheaper to get the parts and build yourself, if you aren't sure how to build then get one part built like i did and then just add remaining bits. you will save alot of money and like the guy said above you can go for the 1080 instead

    why mATX in a full tower ?

    This ^ the K on the end of the numbers for the cpu just means the processor is unlocked for overclocking purposes, if you don't overclock it, it will perform the same as the non K version.

    Ok so i can go for the non k One. About the mboard instead, it is Just One of those offered for full tower on website (but not foer "mini" pc, do you think the same pc can Be built in a mini?

    have a look on ebay, you will find one much cheaper for the same spec

    ​Go for a bigger board for upgrade options. I would swap out the cs builder psu for a higher quality model, maybe a evga supernova g2. I prefer big cases because they're easier to work on but I've a core x9 case which is huge
