So for those who don't know somehow a fire started beside my pc that ruined my motherboard and the case along with the cables to everything. I was able to save my RAM CPU and Hard Drive and I have decided that I want to build another PC because I've missed the ****. If yall could help me and make a double check that these are good and they should be compatible I would appreciate that. Also, if yall know any better parts besides the ones I already have I would love that so I could save some money.

G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)

I'd spend less on the motherboard and tower and get a better PSU and GPU

Better Mobo & cheaper

The Gigabyte Gaming G1 Sniper
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIADFR6524608

It actually uses similar VRM to the Assrock but its got better Mosfets & Gigabyte Bios & build quality is far superior.


The Asrock also misleads you into thinking its an 8 phase when its really a 4 phase.

That GPU is better than the current one I had?
The 1050ti is an entry level card the 1060 is midrange


I personally would buy a 470/570 over the 1060 as they are similar price and the future proofing & features on the 470/570 appeal to me. But the 580/480 are still going for $300+



So you can get a 470 just under 300 but the 580 is inflated atm.

Right now only 580 8gb on newegg at reasonable prices are

GIGABYTE AORUS Radeon RX 580 8GB +GIGABYTE PW400 400W 80+ PSU = $344

RX 580 + Activity Tracker or Selfie stick (same price for either bundle) for $330
