I would get a better power supply, maybe a 800w or higher and for the graphics card i would go with either a gtx 1070 or if you want cheaper maybe a 970

970 is outdated 750W would be adequate no need for anything over

As far as gpu rx480 is a good choice

EVGA G2 power supplies are always a good way to go btw

If i were you i'd switch out the s340 for a phanteks enthoo pro, is a much better case


I was thinking the 480 as well, saw 13 recommend that card allot. Also i have already brought the Case along with the Cooler & LEDs.

Is the Alternate PSU needed though? i don't plan to sli at anypoint. So i think i would have more then enough power for a single card.

Also trying to save a bit of money what would you say is better the MSI Intel Z270 GAMING PRO CARBON or SLI plus? £15 cheaper if i go with the SLI plus.

Same for the SSD as well, i would save £25 if i went with the SanDisk SSD PLUS 240 GB but is a Crucial MX300 worth that extra 25?

Grr. Honestly I'd have got the Eclipse P400S instead of the S340 due to the S340's limited fan/rad support. Also the X52 is still pretty over-priced so you could have easily saved a good bit of money there. They're not bad parts though.

No need for a 750W G2 at all. The 650W unit is enough for XFire 480's and is a good bit cheaper. Yes, the MX300 is worth the premium over a cheap SSD, and the 850 EVO is worth the premium over that.

If you'd rather save money, don't go with Kaby Lake/Z270.

Alright thanks for the quotes man will stick with the MX300 for sure then. Also what's you're thoughts on the MSI Z270 SLI Plus there is a pretty nice discount in my area currently for it £20 off.

Get the 850 EVO over the MX300. The MX300 is only £10 cheaper so the 850 EVO is definitely worth the premium. Also definitely get the 500GB SSD since you can afford it. Z270 SLI Plus is a decent motherboard. You're really not going to go wrong with any Z170/Z270 motherboard tbh. You don't need SLI support though. Just get whichever is cheapest that you like the look of.
