Hello all,

I haven't built a desktop in about 5 years but I imagine the basics are all the same. I just put together all these parts, and this site tells me I'm good to go:

Value wise, is this a decent build? $1000 to $1200 is about my budget, and I already have everything else such as OS, monitors, mouse, and speakers

no not really. never dealt with ASrock MOBO's so cant comment on them.

I do know those Hyper 212 EVO CPU coolers can be a pain to install. I did two of them and nothing but a pain but do work good, Outside of with one my MOBO kept saying no CPU cooler detected. Also they are really big and the one just barely fit in the case I was putting it in.

otherwise looks fine.

Drop one of the keyboards and spend more on a graphics card. Like a 1070 or somesuch

A Ryzen 3 with a 1080 TI. That dude has to be trolling with that build.

Looking for any/all additional feedback and I got one more question. Is there really gonna be a substantial drop in price over the weekend for these parts, or just pull the trigger now?
