Someone please make a list of parts that must include the Phanteks Eclipse P400 or S, and a GTX 1060 or 1050 TI. NO STOCK INTEL COOLER. Ryzen is acceptable but then you would need faster ram. I need it to be a clean PC, no crazy RGB Light Strips, or extreme low-profile 1080 ti's :) Thanks!
 
Do you have a gsync monitor? That would be the only reason to require a 1060 or 1050ti. The Rx 580's prices have come down and they are even when it comes to performance with a 1060 6gb. I would go with a 580 which is significantly faster than the 1050ti.

Oh WOW! I've never seen a response that quick, and no I don't have a Freesync or G-Sync monitor, it's just because i've been researching through the 1060's and 1050's, and never thought of the RX 580 (For some reason). I see that you guys only have a SSD as the storage, is there and cheap 1 TB Hard Drives? I would love to put the SSD as the Boot. The Monitor I have is a old 60 HZ Samsung Monitor, which would soon be upgraded. And yes I do agree the RX 580 is faster, and plus..more VRAM.
 


The 1060 is a very efficient GPU, a decent 450 watt PSU will push a 2600/1060 no sweat. The 580 is a little bit more power hungry, a 2600 and 580 could probably run on a 450 watt, but I would want a little bit more.

These days, you really have to have an SSD. While it may not make your games much better, it will make the entire PC experience MUCH better. Loading and boot times will be increased exponentially. I would get a SSD and load your OS, applications, and a few games. Then later get a 1tb HDD and put your games on it as most games wont get the benefit from a SSD.

Also, I don't know about Canada, but in the US you can get 3 decent games bundled with the 580, makes it a really good buy.

Here is a cheap 1tb HDD.
