I'm trying to put together a new build and would like to get some opinions on this. It's mostly for movies/streaming with some mid range gaming. I haven't put together a rig in close to 10 years and an itx build is definitely new for me. Thanks in advance

Your PC is very good, you should have no problems in gaming or streaming. However, I would recommend that you buy a Skylake processor, example i5-6400 since it is newer. You need to change your motherboard to H110 or H170, and from DDR3 to DDR4 RAM. It costs more, but it is worth.


CPU: Intel i7-8700K 5.3 GHz ------ RAM: 32GB TridentZ 3600 MHz CL16 ----- Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus X Formula ----- GPU: Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Amp! Extreme ----- Storage: Samsung 960 Pro 1TB -- Samsung 850 Pro 2TB x4
