What i've thought of:
Masterbox 5 - 6.5k
i5 6500 - 15.5k
Z170 Pro Gaming- 15.5k
RX 470 - 17k

Or use the R9 270x for now and save up for a GTX 1070? Do i need to upgrade the PSU?


I think you might have to upgrade your RAM too. As FX 6300 uses DDR3 and i5 6500 will need DDR4.

Thanks. Didn't knew that.
Also is masterbox 5 worth it? Or should i go with something cheaper? it should be aesthetically pleasing.


Broken In
Ya man save up for 1070 it will be much more future proof. Can't you sell this rig ?You can easily get 18-22k for cpu,mobo,gpu,ram n cab(Maybe more I don't know).
And Corsair spec alpha or Nzxt s340(white) for cabinet both look badass then masterbox 5(atleast for me :p )


The Slowest One
NXZT isnt badass at all. very simple looking tower, I feel it will look good only when LEDs are fit and transparent side is facing towards us.
MasterBox is good looking. And Spec Alpha's only "black and silver" version looks good. but NXZT is favorite of most of the digitians cause of looks+features


Don't get a Z series mobo if you are planning to use a non-k series proccy.

You probably can get a B150 mobo and use the money saved on getting a GTX 1060 instead of the RX470.

GTX 1070 would be wasted for 1080p gaming. GTX 1060 can run games at ultra settings at that resolution and even decent framerates at 1440p mid-high settings.


Will GTX 1060 last for 2-3 years?

Updated config:
Gigabyte B150M-D3H (Is this ok?)
i5 6500 (is 6600k worth the price?)
Zotac GTX 1060 Amp (Should i go with zotac or Asus?)
Hyper x fury 4GB X2

Total: 58k


Chosen of the Omnissiah
Budget -55K

Intel Core i5 6500 -15000,
Gigabyte GA-150M-D3H -7500,
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 2400Mhz -2500,
Zotac GTX1060 6GB Amp -24000,
NZXT S340 -6000.
