$113.00 Crucial 16GB Kit (4GBx4) DDR4-2133 UDIMM Desktop Memory
$231.80 Intel® Core™ i7-7700 Processor + GA-H270M-D3H Motherboard
$250.00 ASUS DUAL-GTX1060-O6G
$90.00 Intel® SSD 600p Series (256GB, M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x4)
This is the core of the machine I'm thinking about building. It is modest in displacement and power consumption. The GA-H270M is a Micro ATX form factor, so I need a corresponding case+PSU. I also need an M.2 SSD. My rotational media is on the network and thus won't be in the box. I'll probably get a mouse because I hate my current mouse; I might get a keyboard or I might skip it. I need an HDMI cable.
What am forgetting? A quick glance at what I assume is the last thread reveals:
- HSF: It's a 65W part (no 'K'). I'm going to use stock and it'll be fine.
- OS: I have a thumb drive with 16.04 on it. Is 17.04 a thing yet?
- Monitor: 1080p ought to be enough for anybody
- Speakers: I have an old 80s amp I plug my speakers into. It's kind of shitty. An amp that accepts S/PDIF would be suuuuper sweet.
So, any SSD or mouse recommendations?
*As far as I'm concerned, this is the Dad edition of the Mohtalim hardware thread, not the 2017 edition. Presumably, the next version will be the midlife-crisis edition and will feature Ferrari red boxen.
