Hi, can you guys quickly check over this new build for a €1200 gaming PC. Will be running RPGs, not fast shooty games. I just want to make sure all the bits fit together and I'm not missing anything obvious or clever. Thanks.

Save a little bit of money by going with the Saphire RX580 and put that extra money towards a better and higher capacity SSD. If you have the money I would also look at investing in a better PSU. The Seasonic Focus+ Gold at 650W would be a good choice.

Thanks Jeremyj,

That's great advice - I'll do it. One further question, do I need both extra case fans do you think, or is one enough?

Solid build, I'd upgrade the motherboard to something better. You'll not only get better overclocks, but you'll also get things like better audio, more USB 3.1 gen ports, things like that.

You could get just 1 fan and move the top fan to the front of the case. Ideally you want more air to be put into the case than the fans can exhaust from the case. Reason is positive air pressure reduces the amount of dust buildup inside of the case. Plus that assures that the only place where air enters the case will be from the front fans. When more air is able to expelled from the case than it take in, negative air pressure, then air is sucked into the case from every spot possible and not just from places that have filters. On top of that the hot air that was just expelled can be sucked back into the case immediately and that offers no cooling to the chips inside.
