Is there any reason why did you selected a haswell chip?

Mainly just price and reviews. I've had a Ryzen 1600x before and absolutely loved it, but this time I wanted to give Intel a chance. I don't plan on using this for super heavy gaming and I was trying to keep this build under $800, ignoring the led strips of course.

but why Haswell? That's like 2013

Also, what happened to the 1600x?

I just saw a lot of good reviews about the i5-4570 and didn't know it was from 2013. I had to sell my PC. Unexpected event and I needed the money.

I was actually looking at the 570 phantom but then I bought an RX 580 8gb for $170 from a good friend that he had just laying around. Thought it was a pretty good deal. I switched some other parts around and will probably go with a Ryzen chip tbh. Dropped to 8gb of ram for now since I know it will be enough and went with a cheaper SSD.
