hello
I hope this works but this is my list for my first ever build, and I was hoping for peoples opinions . I basically followed a build from trusted reviews web site.

pcpartspicker


the pc is for my son as a gaming pc and there are a couple of things I'd like to ask.

is there anything I have forgot
at partpicker it questions the cpu cooler , any suggestions
do I need any extra fans
at the moment it will run on one monitor but in the future we may get a second one for skype, youtube , documents whilst running a game. how would I do this with this set up.

thanks for any help

no you dont need extra fan or cpu cooler (212 evo)
you need to change mobo to something like asus premium 100$ or gaming 3 gigabyte also 100$
i hope i help
YOU NEED more compatible ddr4 ram something like g skill or crucial ballistic sport lt

How is this as a build / compatability etc will it all work together, just waiting to pull the trigger and get started. I dont need OS and hope to use and old dvd for now if possible.
Mostly for games but I would like to know If in the future I could run 2 monitors 1st for games 2nd one back ground stuff ie youtube, skype, spotify and how much would it affect the fps of the games .

thanks for any help

Yep, the rest is ok. You can offset most of the cost of the 1060 by changing the motherboard, hard drive and SSD to slightly cheaper (still good) versions, so it only ends up being around £10 more. The 1060/580 should improve performance by a little over 20%

I've had a quick look around and came up with this comparison
https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/QVWrxr,P8wqqs,bxM323,WwQRsY/

the reason behind the comparison was for some reason I noticed 2 hdmi outs and with 2 monitors at some point in the future ( 1 gaming 2nd skype,spotify, youtube whilst playing games ) I thought how much of a difference would it be using 2 hdmi compared to 1 hdmi ( game ) and 1 dvi skype etc also the 2 570's of which my original build used the itx , would there be any difference in performance and just pay the extra for the 2nd hdmi
