4 things I would do:

  • change the CPU to G5400 (saves 25$)
  • put a small amount of dollars to a better B360 MOBO... 20$ mail-in-rebate? perfect!
  • your MOBO and CPU cant even make use of 3000 RAM, RAM with 2400 CL 15 will do perfectly fine
  • and I'd put the saved dollars towards the PSU (again, 20$ mail-in-rebate)

you just need a better GPU, if you can hold your horses, GTX 11xx / 20xx can't be far away.

If you want to get into streaming (with facecam and/or talking to stream-viewers, I recommend getting a mic from "Rode". People will immediately turn off a stream when the sound quality is bad.

I totally agree,

I hated to buy new fans, but the two original Corsair 120ML fans were just too loud (even with headphones on)

PS: I have the ugly brown ones

the pricing of the parts is alright, the build is well balanced.

BUT for gaming (not all games) an i3-8100 will have a better bang-per-buck (higher core clocks and it is cheaper) well it really depends, other games will give you more frames with the i5-8400, but with a GTX 1060 both of these CPUs should be on par. (again, depending on the game) The 4GHz turbo of the i5-8400 makes it stronger, so with good cooling you can hold that up.

when it comes to recplacement fans for AIO coolers, everyone gets hyped for https://pcpartpicker.com/product/b2vRsY/noctua-case-fan-nff12pwm

And I can confirm, they are silent and work fine for overclocks.

If you want to finally OC that CPU and if your case can handle it, get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 159mm for only 20 bucks

If your case can't handle 159mm cooler height, then go for this cooler 15$

If you still don't want to overclock get this 6.50$ cooler from Arctic at least. It will work so much better than the stock cooler.

putting those top fans as far away from each other as possible is an option, but even if there is some outgoing air directly sucked in again, it will not change the cooling capability in a noteworthy matter

take the 80$ from Win10, leaves you with shipping at 497,45 $

37.5% profit margin on your service.

A build like that should take like 30mins if you have some routine. 300$ in 30min, so 600$ per hour... that's like top notch attorney fee right there... If you sell 1 PC every 2 days you can live an easy life with a lot of leisure time. And if you don't do the taxes on your ebay sellings (I am a private person not a business), you only need to sell 1PC every 4 days.

that is what 800$ can actually get you right now:

looking at this picture: https://puu.sh/Bey9M/786332c5a2.png and by your statements of CFM and choked CFM I suggest this setup:

  • 2 choked front fans as intake
  • 1 rear fan as outtake
  • 1 top fan more to the rear as outtake
  • 1 top fan more to the front as intake

or short:

change the flow direction from the fan which is directly above and on top of the CPU-cooler

one point surely was the looks being similar to the MOBO you chose.

and another point was showing the best price.

if you are willing to invest a couple more bucks, I suggest this MOBO:

then we are back to ATX and cooling all the VRMs properly

I have 3000 RAM in my main build and the difference between it running with 3000 and 2133 is whooping 6fps... so BF1 is either 120fps or 114fps for me...

integrated WiFi or WiFi via a PCIe card won't change the function, only the looks.

as long as it is the new AC standard, you are fine, there is no better or worse

like keschendel said

  • but the PSU is 750W, because it is discounted and even cheaper than the 650W version
  • the MOBO is now mATX, just saying, because some people don't like mATX MOBOs in ATX cases

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What should I replace my GPU with? Help!"

those games are from 2012 and end of 2014. (please don't hint to Crysis (2007), we all know what Crytek did)

The HD 7850 was like on par with a GTX 660ti

so in 2018, a GTX 1050 is even a bit stronger than a GTX 660ti (thus a GTX 1050 being a bit stronger than a HD 7850)

to really get an upgrade you should look into GTX 1050ti and upwards, or RX 570 and upwards

EDIT: keep in mind, that MMORPGs can get quite CPU intense... like on a raid with 20 people all casting sh at once

have a look at this: https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/2913-when-does-the-intel-pentium-g4560-bottleneck-gpu

it basically shows:

  • when all the different GPUs create the same framrate in a game, then the CPU does bottleneck the GPU
  • when there is an expected difference in framerate, then the CPU does not bottleneck

logically the other way around

  • when all the different CPUs give you the same framerate with one specific GPU, then the GPU bottlenecks
  • when there is an expected difference in framerate, then the GPU does not bottleneck

_

  • Fortnite ( this is an example and does not refelct the reality)
  • the G4560 + GTX 1050ti does put out a number of frames, lets say: 60fps
  • the G4560 + GTX 1070 does put out a number of frames, lets say: 100fps
  • the G4560 + GTX 1080 does put out a number of frames, lets say: 120fps
  • the G4560 + GTX 1080ti does put out a number of frames, lets say: 160fps
  • conclusion, the CPU does not bottleneck

_

  • Ashes Escalation (actual benchmarks confirm this example)
  • the G4560 + GTX 1050ti does put out a number of frames, lets say: 50fps
  • the G4560 + GTX 1070 does put out a number of frames, lets say: 50fps
  • the G4560 + GTX 1080 does put out a number of frames, lets say: 50fps
  • the G4560 + GTX 1080ti does put out a number of frames, lets say: 50fps
  • conclusion, the CPU does bottleneck

for Fortnite and PUBG, I recommend upgrading the GTX 1050ti to a GTX 1070ti first (to make use of that 144Hz monitor) and upgrade the G4560 to an i5-7500 in the future (the B250 MOBO hinders you from overclocking). If the i5-7500 ain't an option for you, then I'd say save money for a new CPU+MOBO combo... for example a Z390 MOBO with a 9th gen CPU (K-version)

the overlock is what really makes your CPU strong for gaming. Single-core power!

A 5GHz 4C/4T CPU will work better for a vast majority of games than a 3.2GHz 6C/12T CPU

However, if you are cool with the CPU + GPU combo you got right now, then wait for the next nvidia gen to drop. Buying a GPU like the GTX 1070 and seeing the GTX 1170 (or 2070) being released shortly after will most likely devastate you. Because the GTX 1170 (or 2070) will most likely have the power of a GTX 1080 for the price of a GTX 1070

High frequency + low cas latency

this sheet gives you clarification on which RAM is really fast: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rqnHgPrG059fpOjArpc_nFSDVG1dsjw6y3o9ujf4hro/edit#gid=0

2x8GB for 130$ with 2400 frequency and 14CL is your best bang-per-buck buy right now (11.67ns ; 8.98 quote) (higher quote is better bang-per-buck)

2x8GB for 160$ with 3000 frequency and 15CL is faster in nanoseconds, but will cost more (10.01ns ; 6.26 quote)

2x8GB for 150$ with 2133 frequency and 13CL (12.19ns ; 8.13 quote)

I also don’t want it sounding like a jet engine, so sufficient cooling and airflow would be nice.

I have never seen a internet-modem-router with active cooling... all the stuff you can buy here or get from your ISP is passive cooled.

the max power draw of that GPU is 180W, with peaks at 230W, so even you add the 50W, you still won't reach 550W. So, no problem there.

there is a small bottleneck in open-world games like GTA V,

but at 1080p in a game like overwatch for example you won't notice a difference (couple of frames) between a G4560 + GTX 1070ti and a i7-7700k + GTX 1070ti

there won't be any overclocking, so the GTX 1070ti is perfectly fine with "only" a 550W unit in this build.

IF there would be a Z370 MOBO with an i5-8600k involved (or some Ryzen setup), then a 650W unit is desirable

Corsair - TXM Gold 550W ha 2x 6+2 pins, so this is safe, too.

  • I hope you got a case
  • First upgrade should be a dedicated GPU, I don't think gaming on integrated graphics is enjoyable with a 1080p 144Hz monitor. GTX 1070ti would be perfect to make use of the monitor.
  • Second upgrade should be the CPU, maybe to an i5-7500. And get rid of that intel stock cooler.

  • could go cheaper with the GPU
  • could go cheaper with a R5 1600 CPU
  • could go cheaper with a B350 MOBO
  • could go cheaper with 2133 CS14 RAM

If you only got a 60Hz monitor then don't take a GTX 1070ti, get a GTX 1060 6GB instead

If you got a monitor with FreeSync, go for the RX 580
