Hi,

I am planning a new build.
it should be a powerful system for about 1k-1.2k €

maybe some of you can give me advice to change some of the products with other ones for about the same money.
specially i am not sure about the mainboard and the graphic card.

thank you all!

here we go:

CPU: Intel i7 8700
MOBO: ASRock 90-MXB5X0-A0UAYZ (Intel Z370)
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB 2400MT/S) Crucial BLS2C8G4D240FSC
Graphics: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 4GB (Boost: 1506 Mhz) GV-N105TG1GAMING-4GD

what u think?


thank you =)

That GA-Z370 has been used by many people with success. Maybe a good idea as you'll have more people with experience with that board.

doesn't really matter - it just has to be delivered to Austria ;)
but maybe amazon or some other tech stores...
Any RX 560 except XFX version will work.
Any RX 570-580 will work including XFX.
Only one not to get is XFX RX 460-560 models everything else has worked.

Sapphire RX 570-580 pulse models are recommended by Apple but all others are supported.
