    3 - First component you need to make a choice on is the motherboard. If you're committed to purchasing a certain motherboard, you will need to check the specifications of said board in order to check which chipset it has.

    This will then tell you which processors are compatible with the board. You then need to check the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for the motherboard to see which RAM modules and types of HDD/SSD are compatible (slot wise, amount of slots, etc...) [[The amount of HDDs/SSDs you can take also depends on your case]].

    If you need any more information or advice, please don't hesitate to ask

    EDIT: For 1000 euros / 1200$

    - ASUS 970 Pro Gaming Motherboard = 90 euros @ Newegg.com
    - AMD FX 8370 + Wraith Cooler = 150 euros @ Newegg.com
    - Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 RAM = 80-ish euros @ Newegg.com
    - 2 TB HDD = 100-ish euros @ Newegg.com
    - 128GB SSD = 100-ish euros @ Newegg.com
    - Mid-ATX Case = 100+ euros @ Newegg.com
    - ASUS STRIX AMD RADEON RX 580 8GB OC Graphics Card = 230 euros @ Newegg.com
    - Corsair 750W PSU = 100-ish euros @ Newegg.com

    There's a pretty decent build for around 900 euros (slightly below your budget) and if you need it, then the spare money can be used for a new monitor. You could also buy some more expensive RAM.

    This is my (not completed) component list I don't know if the parts are compatible with one each other. The online are from Norway and the currency is also Norwegian, to get the currency to euros you only got to take the value times 10 , e.g. 1000 NOK = 10000 euros.

    Your chosen cabinet has red LED's. If you choose to opt for RAM that has LED control on it, be cautious. A lot of people are having trouble controlling the LED's (red in your case if you go that way) consistently on RAM chips, at least for the Corsair chips that I've researched. I opted to get away from LED RAM chips for that reason, although some here on the forum might have had good success with them and can advise.

    Don't forget you'll need a cooling kit, and make sure it fits into that case, it looks a little smaller than I'm used to, so sometimes you might have to get creative. Just be sure to measure all your parts thoroughly (or...research the dimensions) prior to buying all your parts.

    I might be misunderstanding, but what is the difference between AMD FX 8370 and I7-6700K. I would like to have an intel card over AMD (don't ask why, I don't really know). Is it somewhere I can learn how to see the difference between processors?

    So the rest of the components are compatible?

    This is the updated version off my Data components list. I don't know if the parts are compatible (I have tried to figure it out). What do I miss and what do you recommend. Eleiyas@ASUS I have seen your build and I'm thinking about it.

    EDIT:
    This build need to be able to play high quality games (e.g. Shadow of War and Total war Attila) on relative high quality.

    EDIT:
    How do you choose your RAM?

    Hi Dragon. So, from what you've posted above, my leaning and recommendation would be DO NOT BUY the RAM kit you've chosen in your spreadsheet above. Here's why, and how to go about determining if you want it or not, and what your real options are. Others may have additional insight to what I show here.

    First off you didn't list the kit number, and that is how these are tracked. I took a stab at guessing what you chose, and after searching for kit numbers that match the description in your spreadsheet above, it appears to me you chose this one: CMK16GX4M2A2133C13 That's the only one that matches your spreadsheet description. There are two others, with the LED options I mentioned above.


    The process you should follow is:

    STEP 1: First you go to the motherboard you've chosen, Asus Z170 Pro Gaming on Asus' website in your case, and click on the Support button, and then the Memory/Device Support tab. As someone else mentioned above you must check the Qualified Vendors List (QVL) to see if Asus has determined that this memory is compatible for your motherboard. For any one memory kit it's possible it could still work, however this list is for the memory the manufacturer has tested with the motherboard, approved, and will support via warranty. If you choose RAM that is not on this list and you damage your motherboard they will likely not support you. So if it's on this list you should be good, and if it then does not work after being on the list, you have warranty protection. HERE IS THE QVL PAGE for the motherboard you listed.

    There are several files to choose from on that QVL page I linked above. Choose the latest QVL, indicating the most recent testing results and approvals. So I went through that for the kit that I THINK (?) you have chosen. Verify the kit number. Yours is not on that latest list. The list FYI is sorted by speed first, then manufacturer and kit style second, so you can spot what you're looking for. There are no Corsair 2x8 kits listed on that page at all for 2133 MHz.

    Incidentally there is also a QVL listing in your motherboard manual, but it is not going to be the latest listing, so if it's not listed in there you still need to go to the webpage for the latest list. Who knows when the manual was actually published, and if that list was ever updated at any time.


    STEP 2: So contrary to what I said above in Step 1 ( LOL ! ) when I chose my RAM kit for my own motherboard it was not on that QVL. Why did I choose it? Because first off I really wanted it, but that's not the real reason. The RAM manufacturers also test with motherboards as well and they have their own list they call a compatibility list. This means they've tested it and found good results. That's where I found my kit would most likely work with my motherboard, and is why I purchased it. It works fine for me. The point is you should also check the compatibility list, and IMO even if it IS on the motherboard's QVL I would still check the compatibility list of the RAM manufacturer just to be sure. One point of confirmation is good, but two points are better still. If it's not on that compatibility list, then you can search their forums for others who are successfully using your potential setup.

    So again, using the kit I guessed at above, on Corsair's website, I took a look at their compatibility list ON THIS PAGE (select the Downloads tab) and found no listing for your motherboard. My conclusion is stay away from it, as it's not listed for you board's chipset and hasn't been listed by either manufacturer. There are other kits that will work in 2x8 configuration at higher speeds, so you should probably consider those.

    Hope that helps a little.

    1000 Norwegian Kroner is 105-ish euros by the way, not 10500 euros

    AMD FX 8370 - 8 core - 8 thread processor, don't really need to overclock it.

    Intel - meh, not a fan Far too expensive for what you get compared to AMD.


    The build I gave you should easily play the games you want to play on max graphics. Especially with that graphics card.


    @Davemon50 - great post

    I think Chino give best recommendation.
    i5 and GTX1070 are best for games.
    i7-6700K is great CPU but GTX1050TI is weak GPU.

    I managed to find some of the parts I think, but the others I could either not find or there were a lack of information e.g Lack of two letters. If you could provide these I would be very happy indeed.
    You are supposed to smear the cooling paste behind the CPU on the pins, right?
