I messed around on PC parts picker, but I was told not to trust what it says on compatibility, and I myself have no clue how to find out what's compatible with what. My budget is $500 for just the tower, I have a GTX 1060 3GB from an old PC that I'd like to reuse, and I could reuse an i5-7400. What are some good options?
