For one, you're a lucky mf for the HDD. two;

Budget? Currency?
Aesthetics? (colors, and schemes and stuff like that.)
Will you want to overclock in the future?
Do you need a monitor, keyboard, or mouse?
What is the main purpose of the PC?

Thank you for the answer and your quetions.

Everything you see on the list, I can afford, I only want to know if they can fit for eachother and what case should I buy that is budget friendly. As far as color and scheme doesn't really mater to me. I dont want to overlock in future. I already have nice keyboard. mouse, expensive 65inch TV, a nice 27inch samsung monitor. My main purpose for the PC is editing videos for my work, I edit wedding videos alot (my work). I am not a PC gamer (PS4 mostly)

My main question is if the motherboard fits the gtx 1060 and the intel i7, if yes, what case would be good for them?

Not a bad start, but there are probably some changes you should make. If you give us your budget and currency, we can help with a parts list.

So, budget and currency?
What exactly will you use the system for? What programs will you be using, etc?
What is the model of your Samsung monitor?

I live in Norway, we use NOK currency. My budget is 1500USD. Keep in mind where i live everything is more expensive than united states. Example i cannot buy anything from ebay or amazon because of tax. If i buy anything cheap from outside Norway, the tax will make sure i didnt do any good deals. Thats because they dont want people from buying outside the country. The list i have are best i found where i live for the money. My only problem is i dont know if they fit for eachother and what case is good enough. Thank you for the advice, any help is appreciated

We're aware you can't buy from the US, that's why we were asking your budget and currency. You could do better with your budget. An i5-8400 would be cheaper and better than a 7700k, but you can afford an 8700k which is even better. Depending on what exactly you'll be using the system for though, you might be better going with Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7. GTX 1060 is unnecessary. You're not going to use it. Even a GTX 1050Ti is more than adequate.

Is i5-8400 really better than i7-7700k? because the i7-7700k is 4,2GHz while the i5-8400 is 2,8GHz . Yes the i5-8400 is cheaper but the i7-8700k is more expensive than the i7-7700k where I live.


But I still have not gotten my answers. My original question was if the motherboard fits the gtx 1060 and i7 and what case would fit nicely in a good price. Thank you for your reply,

the 8400 has a higher core count, as well as damn near same performance all around. The 8700k will be ahead of the other two of course. I already said they would work, but it is pointless as you are likely doing light rendering and don't really need the extra performance as you play on console.
