Build Complete My final build for now. intel 8700, 1080ti, m.2 black, 16GB 2666, AIO, B360, View 71

Looks good. Interesting case setup.

Next investment should be a good power supply. The 600B isn't bad for budget gaming builds, but shouldn't be used for high-end gaming builds. It's entry-level at best.

Really? I was recommended by my local store Computer sales rep telling me that the 600 B should be more than enough for my type of setup. I asked the sales rep if i should go for the 750 wat, but he told me 600 wat should be enough?

Yeah he told you it was enough wattages but he didn't tell you if it was a PSU of good quality.

Yeah, if he thought this was entirely a wattage issue, he wasn't particularly knowledgeable about the field. Pairing a cheapy group-regulated PSU (make sure to not use the C6/C7 sleep states) with a modern i7 and a GPU that's still competitive with $400-$500 GPUs is less than ideal.

There are far worse PSUs out there, but this was a fairly poor recommendation, and I'm disappointed that the salesman gave you such advice. I hope you got a reasonable discount for taking an 8000 series CPU and the 1080 Ti; given that he foisted a 600B on you, I'm a little worried that he was trying to clear out inventory.
