I forgot to mention most of the parts need to come from newegg because it's going on credit...
I dont think a 550w psu will be big enough? The 750w from amazon looks good and I trust seasonic..
On the subject of the case though we want that case specifically. I know it's on the spendier side but that's what he wants and it is his afterall..
Anyone know if the ram will have any issues? It's the neo version which is new and designed for 3000 series cpus. Also the board says it can use 3200mhz. These should work right?
I'm not sure I would consider a $95 case as "expensive", exactly. That's decidedly still "mid-range", in my opinion. That DIYPC case might be serviceable for someone looking to maximize performance and cut corners on everything else in a budget build, but it's not exactly a great-looking case. It's probably alright considering the price, but having a plastic window isn't quite the same as having a tempered glass side-panel in terms of aesthetics, and I fully expect the airflow and general build quality to be quite a bit better in the fractal design case. In a $750+ build, I would want something at least a little nicer, especially if the system is being built for someone else, as a bargain-bin case probably isn't going to make for a very good first impression. If you are looking to cut corners a bit in that area, there are a number of great-looking options with decent build quality priced in-between, Like the Phanteks P300 for around $60, or a P400 starting a little over $70, both with tempered glass.expensive case, crappy PSU.
for your consideration
I don't know much about OLOy RAM, aside from it appearing on Newegg in recent months and that model having very large wings that might potentially get in the way of certain aftermarket CPU tower coolers. It appears to be a Chinese company, though they likely get their RAM modules from one of the common memory manufacturers. I haven't seen any professional reviews about them, but again, they have only been available in the US for a few months.What about Oloy ram?
Nvidia added support for FreeSync adaptive sync to their recent cards back in January. So, you don't need an expensive monitor using their proprietary hardware to get adaptive sync on their 10, 16 and 20-series cards anymore. The monitor just needs to support FreeSync over a DisplayPort connection for the feature to work (Not HDMI, which some screens are limited to). Nvidia has certified a limited number of FreeSync displays as "G-Sync Compatible", and the feature is automatically enabled on those models, though all screens that support FreeSync over a DisplayPort connection should work. The "G-Sync" feature will need to be manually enabled in the Nvidia control panel as well as in the monitor's settings for screens that are not officially supported though.On the gpu subject that is a great idea going for the 1660 but any g sync monitor will be pricey... he said he plans to upgrade from his tv at some point so I thought it'd be nice to have the cheaper sync option avalible
