    Looks pretty good to me. What would you be using it for and what's your budget? (Preferred and absolute upper limit)

    everything is solid there but I'd double check everything will fit in that mATX case (look at the comments in pcpartpicker). You might be happier with a more powerful video card if you can fit it into your budget. Personally I prefer normal ATX builds unless I'm short on space and the reason is airflow and cable management.

    I forgot to write what I was going to use it for lol. Mainly open world and fps, things like GTA, Skyrim, overwatch, bf1.
    My max would be around 800 to 900 us dollars, but I still need a keyboard, mouse and monitor.
    I will likely buy another case, the one in there was an example.

    What GPU would you recommend? What should I ditch or what's not necessary?

    I swear to god this has been my best method of getting a pc:

    Find someone on craigslist (local seller, etc) who constantly upgrades their pc and sells the old one.

    I've gotten a 3000 dollar pc for 800 bucks once and a similar deal another time. It's used but go check to make sure it's legit before you buy!

    For 1080p gaming a GTX1060 or a RX480 will suffice on the games you play. Unless you want to do 4K or get ridiculous frames per second.

    I think you should wait for AMD Zen now or get an i3 7350K. Also, the RX480 has surpassed the GTX1060 with the ReLive drivers
