look good so far, but that case is funny =/ like the power buttons and usb ports are on the back side pannel of the case, kinda justr werid placement. friend has it, hes not a fan, and because of the cheap dust filters on it, he is not looking forward to cleaning it when he gets to that. theres lots of better cases at the $50 mark
 
I had the Spec-01 and I liked it up until I bought an NZXT S340. I liked the NZXT better until I bought the Phanteks P400. So, that is my priority for budget cases, Phanteks then NZXT then Corsair. The Corsair was very cheaply made, the NZXT was more durable and had removable dust filters on front, and the Phanteks was all that and had rubber grommets for cable management and hdd's. Just my 2 cents on budget cases.

What is your overall budget?

Ryzen is a good start, I prefer this tough. Yes I know it's 3000mhz Ram on a board that runs 2666, but latency of the 2666 is too high at a lower budget.

First build? Keep things simple. i7 will serve you good. Ryzen is very nice today and a great bargain, but it does have it's downfalls on certain games. Display monitor will determine this difference. Along with my suggestion, you can also get yourself a freesync monitor, quite cheap and a nice thing to have.

sry but no. going from a $159 cpu to $300+ CPU for a system im assuming is going to be used for games is just a bad call unless he is allrdy getting the best gpu money can buy. spending $150 more on a gpuand still keeping the ryzen 2600 over the intel i7 8700 would yeld MUCH MUCH better performance then getting the i7 and keeping his planned
gtx 1060. AT BEST the i7 would get mabye 10 frames a second over the ryzen 2600. but spending $150 more on the gpu to get a say a 1080 or vega 64 or spending a lil more to get a gtx2070 would be a MASSIVELY better option

but i do support the idea of the radein rx 580 over the gtx 1060 just because AMD is having a sell on retailer such as new egg that will give u 2 free games (resident evil 2, devilmay cry 5, the divison 2, *u pick 2)

wwaaacs5, although the difference in "most" games is not significant between the ryzen 2600 and the 8700, it should be understood that the i7 does have significant gains on some AAA games. And if you are planning to upgrade/run a high refresh rate monitor, Intel is the better path (higher refresh monitor is a general desire of people who game, even if they're just starting, they will come to want to get one)

Like I said, it's my opinion. And you should have a look at gameplay comparisons, you may be surprised to see a worth in that 150$. Afterall, all systems generally take one GPU upgrade before they retire from gaming purposes. The question is, how well will your ryzen handle new games at that point.

by the time he needs up upgrade from that 1060, there will be all new cpus, and by then a mid budget $150 cpu will out pace the i7 8700 more then likley. most so with a DIE shirk size right on the horizon.

and as i said, paired with a 1060, this is just bad advice, u need a 1070ti or 1080 to see any real difference in just a few titles. the jump in power from a 1060 to just a 1070 is no small bump.

yes the 8700 is a good cpu, but at $300+, it is in ZERO % way friendly to some1 on a budget as stated here. a 8700 paired with a 1060 u may see 10 or 15 fps bump, tops, in maybe just a very few titles. but getting a 1070 with the ryzen 2600 with that extra money would easily yield at least 20 or 30 fps across most any game, sometimes more
 
I have to agree with wwaaacs5. You might be getting a bit higher per-core performance out of the i7-8700, but at least going by current US pricing, you are paying twice as much for the same number of cores and threads. And you're not likely to see much of a performance difference in games when paired with current mid-range cards. In general, I would agree that the extra $150 would be better put toward other components, or simply saved for future upgrades down the line.

Now, if they had a higher budget to work with and were putting a higher-end graphics card in there and really wanted to focus on high refresh-rate gaming on a 144+Hz display, I could see the 8700 being a somewhat more reasonable option. Even with a 1080 Ti or 2080 running at 1080p, you would still only be looking at around a 6-7% difference in average frame rates in games that are more demanding on the CPU though. With a GTX 1060 or RX 580, that difference evaporates almost entirely. A 1-2% difference in average frame rates doesn't exactly seem like a particularly good use of $150.
