Go for 1060 if you can afford the g sync 144 hz monitor

Um you need to add storage and psu into your build bro. if you really want coffee lake go with i3 since it is still 4 cores also where is the case you need one to keep all your parts protected

Oh ok also if you only use or system for gaming I think it will be better to get the i3 8350k since it had better clock speeds at 4ghz and you can oc it. also most game don't use more than 4 cores. And it has 4 cores. it is basically a i5 7600k.

I agree with Albedo, don't bother running a modern system in single-channel mode.
I gotta say too that Z370 just doesn't scream budget. If you can wait for B- or H-series boards as the 8400 isn't overclockable and Intel has shut down the bclock OC cheat already.

I agree, budget would more be around the r5 1600 cpu w/ b350 mobo- def wanna go with a 2x4 gig ram setup over single 8 gig stick from my experience as well. Gfx pricing is a joke as of late, so gl with that either way you go.

I would go for either faster ram or a 2x4 kit.
