Hey guys, back again for some suggestions. My first PC build went great, now I'm building another.

Was looking for recommendations for a PC around $900-950 USD budget range.

Would like the case to be the NZXT Black/Red & include the 1060 6gb if possible.

Don't need any peripherals

Also already have Windows 10.

Additionally,if there are any red light strips that would be neat. (these can be excluded from the price)

Really wanted to go with the MSI 1060 for the red accents but no sense in adding $40-50 just for the red accents. Phantek RGB strips are great, they're magnetic. Just slap them wherever you want.

Notes:

1060 3g link is here: https://www.staples.com/geforce-gtx1060-3gb-ddr5/product_2741079

I included 2 red fans and a 60cm led strip. The price without them is $949.22.

I know you said you wanted the 6g version, but spending an extra $170 and thus sacrificing ram and CPU performance isn’t worth that extra 3g of vRAM in my opinion.
