however the system is poorly configured, the 9900k is the premier CPU in intels roster and the 310 is the lowest performing chipset intel makes for it. fewer features, no overclocking, limited. hard drive cooler is not needed, could not add a 4 port usb 3.0 card those two parts omitted. did not remark on the cooler installed so went with the 212 EVO.
the power supply is not a great one. I could not find the H22 so I used another mid range case in the versa line.

Yup, R_1 is correct. On a fundamental level, the price isn't bad, but there are some really, really odd configuration choices here. You really cheaped out on the power supply and motherboard in order to get 32 GB of RAM. What is the use of this PC? If you're gaming, shelling out for a 9900k while having a 1050 Ti is a stunning misallocation of resources.

4K & VR video Production as well as streaming live 4K & 170 degree VR & maybe attempting to stream from my 360 cam. Im a girl and know a very small amount about computers and that small amount does not extend to matching up power supply and motherboard with CPU and GPU.

If this isn't a gaming rig and you don't use software that could take advantage of a top GPU, than it's more reasonable to have a 1050 Ti and 32 GB of RAM. Probably 85% of rigs being asked about here have significant gaming needs, which is why I was asking.

But the motherboard/cooling choice is worrisome. Even if you're not taking advantage overclocking, you don't want to run a 9900K on a budget motherboard and aftermarket cooling is a necessity (not sure what the company's throwing in there, but a quality cooler would likely be specified).
