u need a intel 6th or 7th gen prcessor to match that mobo.
u dont need 750w. a 550w is more than enough even considering future gpu upgrade.
ur peripherals r overpriced. look for a loitech g502 mouse and logitech g430 headset which comes with a mic.
consider a gtx1060 6gb or rx580 4gb/8gb for gpu.

or, tell us ur budget n location. we can draft u a build.

I recommend you put the parts together on here. It's easy for everyone to change it around and make suggestions that way. You can sort by Country at the top right corner for different stores and currency.

I don't think I can do that because the GPU, mobo and a bunch of other stuff are not listed on the website. I also want to know if my build will be able to record gameplay with very minimal lag? That is why I want the NVIDIA GPU.

Above is the reason most the parts aren't on there, they are too old. If you are buying these new you should be going for a newer generation like Intel 6th/7th Gen or AMD Ryzen. As for the GPU i'm not sure what you mean by record gameplay with minimal lag i assume you are referring to Nvidia ShadowPlay, is so Radeon cards have ReLive now which is just as good. See more details on it here > https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Radeon_Crimson_ReLive_Drivers/3.html.

Like Lucky_SLS mentioned if you can let us know your location/budget we can help put together a list similar to what you have but with newer parts and you can see what you think. :)
 


ur choice of model is wrong, not the processor. or i should say, yes, i7 is a good choice. but only 6xxx or 7xxx series of i5, i7 will match that mobo.
if u already have that PSU, no issues there. thats a very good model.
ur choice of gpu is a weak one. to max out 1080p u need a gtx 1060 or rx480/580. those crds will give u 60+ fps for sure. if u plan to keep ur gpu for 3-4 years, get a gtx1070 or its equivalent from Vega.
y vega? free sync monitors r cheaper than g sync ones ;)

Ok, so what I want, is something that will be quiet, especially during recordings. I also want a powerful computer, that can run very good framerate WHILE I am recording. (That is pretty much all I want for my pc, but if you could include the monitor price within the 1500 dollar range the would be amazing)

Thank you for the build, I looked through it, and I want to know how much storage do I really need for gaming? I came up with my own build and I chose a 2TB storage.

Ok, so I build a PC of my own on PCpart picker, and I also raised by budget a little bit. How is this build?






CPU- Intel - Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
$329.89


CPU Cooler - be quiet! - Dark Rock 3 67.8 CFM Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler
$65.49


Motherboard - MSI - Z270-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
$109.49


Memory: Crucial - Ballistix Sport LT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
$59.99


Storage: Seagate - Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
$69.89


Video Card: MSI - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB GAMING X Video Card
$259.99


Case: NZXT - S340 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower Case
$61.99


Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
$99.99 (Free because I already have this)

OS - Microsoft - Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit
$87.89


Wireless Network Adapter - Belkin - F7D2102 USB 2.0 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter
$17.63 (Do I need this part?)


Monitor - Acer - GN246HL 24.0" 1920x1080 144Hz Monitor
$182.99


Keyboard - Logitech - G213 PRODIGY Wired Gaming Keyboard
$59.99 (My dad has this one, is it amazing)


Mouse - Razer - DeathAdder Chroma Wired Optical Mouse
$42.92


Microphone - Razer Seiren Elite USB Digital Microphone - Record with Professional-Grade Studio Sound
$178.87
Total: $1627.01

You could deduct the price of the power supply because I already have that and it would be 1527.01


Would this be powerful but quiet enough to fit my needs?
 
Go for my choice of cooler/mobo/ram. better perf n features.
what abt the ssd? i highly recommend u get one.
if u want a quiet case, take a look at corsair 500R. but if u like s340, go for it. the p400 case got more cooling solutions than s340.
the rx580 4gb/8gb is enough to max out 1080p. its better than gtx 1060 since free sync monitor is cheaper. so go for my choice of monitor obviously.
the keyboard i mentioned is a mechanical one. the one u suggested is a membrane one. if u r ok, no issues.
i wouldnt trust razer mouses since it got so many software implimentation glitches. perf is good. but features may not work properly. try the g502 mouse if u have the cash. worth it.
that g430 has inbuilt mic and has 7.1 sound channel. no need to spend extra on the mic.

u dont have the high speed ram[memory]. ur selection is listed at 2400mhz, mine is at 3200mhz. simply put, faster the better.
install windows and ur games in SSD. the SSD makes ur loading time very short. like booting times in seconds. no more loading circles going round and round ;)
u dont need the wifi card. forgot to say that. mobo comes with one.

Ok, thank you so much for your time and help! I updated my ram to yours, got rid of the wifi card, and so am I all set to order the parts?

Why do you need such an expensive microphone? I'd say lose the expensive peripherals (which you can always buy later) and invest that back into your GPU. Spending that kind of money on a system you should have at least a 1070 or 1080.

Well, I mean the GPU looks pretty good to me, (not that I know too much about it ;)) but I need the microphoneto record quality audio, and the keyboard and mouse look neat as well, are you suggesting that I go with the cross fire for the GPU?

Yea, but is outlet PC a trustworthy site? I have never heard of it before as I have been using Amazon for everything. I always thought they had everything until now :)
