Hello All,

I'm currently looking to build my own gaming computer, and I have a couple parts already, and I've compiled a list of parts I'm thinking about getting. Any and all advice is welcome! Thanks in advance!

Parts I have currently:
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P8H61-I R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
CPU: LGA1155
PSU: ULTRA 750W ATX PSU
Model No: ULT-LSP750

Parts I am considering acquiring:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor $199.99
VIDEO CARD: PNY GeForce GTX 1060 - Graphics card - GF GTX 1060 - 6 GB GDDR5 - PCIe 3.0 x16 - DVI, HDMI, 3 x DisplayPort $259.99
CASE: NZXT - Phantom ATX/EATX/Micro ATX Full-Tower Case - Black, White $119.99
MEMORY: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A2133C11 (Silver) $134.99

Total: $711.96

The only problem I see might happen with getting the Phantom Full-Tower Case is it might not be compatible with my Mini ITX Mother board. Will this be an issue? I sort of really like the way the white version looks...

Some nice upgrades there, might you maybe consider he 25/2600k? Also that graphics card is horribly overpriced. And your motherboard will be perfectly compatible

Made some updates. Changed video card to buy from Dell, and upgraded processor to 2500k. What advantages would there be if I went to an i7?

Thanks so much for your input!
