Ok it's a great parts list, like Mr. Battlefield said - most changes would be nit picky at this point. Good job.

Hey so if I were to be honest, I don't think an rgb ssd would be worth it. For that it might just be better to invest in a fast one (Example or maybe even the 1tb one). On the other hand, you could probably get a different graphics card (like this one with tons of rgb) as the permanent red on the MSI would really stick out I think. Finally, for RAM this would be a very aesthetically pleasing alternative.

Yeah that looks pretty good. There might be better options for a case but it shouldn't be a big deal. Another thing that might be worth considering is going for micro-atx.

My first build was actually in micro atx and it's really not that bad at all. Here's two decent micro atx cases: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/JsKcCJ/ https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dgndnQ/

Here's a simple example of this build if it went in that direction: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GwvcyX

Looks pretty good although the 1080ti is a bit overkill for 1080p. I would probably just upgrade the monitor to 1440p. Do you have a specific budget?

Between the two I would recommend the i7, not just because it's better, but it should help quite a bit when streaming. For your brother's build, the main thing I would change would be the psu - this would be a good alternative for example.

Looks really good! Personally, I would consider micro-atx but that's just a personal preference thing. If you know you want to go for atx, I would recommend the fractal design between the two as it's a very reliable brand and the case has good reviews. Another option though would be something like this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FCs8TW/

Do you have a specific budget? Also if you're planning to target rbg/looks, you might want to consider a different cooler and gpu choice as their colors wont really mix too well.

You don't need the cpu cooler as the cpu comes with one just as good if not better. Also, I would recommend an ssd as your main drive. Even if you cant afford a hdd at first, you can easily add one down the road.

No Problem! By iffy I mean't it's not clear how reliable it should be. On amazon it's 3.5 starts while on newegg it's 3 stars. It's also not as well-known/popular as the 2 tb one I replaced it with. In terms of which gpu I prefer I would say the gigabyte as though it has some permanent orange, it has a backplate and an rgb logo. For the motherboard, I like them pretty similarly - but tbh the gigabyte one might be worth getting for you as it'll look fantastic through a tempered-glass case and it should complement a gigabyte gpu - (it is more expensive though but either choice will definitely keep you under $1500).

What you have looks pretty good - that said you could probably save a bit on the motherboard and the 2600x might be worth considering after that.

If you're interested - it might be worth considering going for micro-atx so that you can have a bit more of a compact pc.

Hope that helps, I'll try to respond if you ahve any more questions.

If you wouldn't mind saving some money, I would definitely say the monitor is overkill. However, is there a specific refresh rate & resolution that you're seeking? And also, is there an actual budget that you're targeting? Here's some useful discussion regarding ultra-wide gaming

You could probably do with a 500gb ssd rather than a 250gb one as there's a lot of good 500gb ssd bargains out there. Aside from that - I can say it'll definitely play the games you want - especially at that resolution (maybe consider 1440p?)

Sure - go for a higher-rated motherboard! good call tbh! Regarding the ssd, I think rather than getting a 256gb ssd and a hdd, it would be better if you went for a 500gb ssd now and later added a hard drive. Hope that helps!

I would actually recommend the 2600x over the 1600 to be honest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8uWMUD_-z0 (see 29:25) is more reliable than userbenchmark.

yes, the 8600k performs better, but it's not '26%' better, it's more like 10% at most. Also, like I said, since amd is sticking with that socket for a while, it would be easy to upgrade. & finally you can overclock.

No, it's easily fast enough to handle the 1080 - If you'd like to have a little more fun overclocking here's a build containing the 2600x which can easily go to 4ghz+ (also has a flashy motherboard :D) -but it's a bigger case:

Would you be willing to try ryzen? the reason I ask is because they'll be using the same cpu socket for the next few years and thus upgrading when their cpus improve in the future will be far less expensive because you wont need a new motherboard.
