    Hi so I am in the final stages of planning my pc build, but I want some reccomended changes. I am still debating the keyboard, and maybe upgrading my mouse (currently have a $20 mouse from logitech) and others stuff, here is the link to my build, thanks for the help! I am pretty much at my budget, dont want to go too much over.

    I'm not too skilled at building PCs, so I can't help with that, but why do you have a Wifi Adapter? It's more convenient but it's not worth spending a lot more money and getting slower speed in exchange for some inconvenience. You probably got a good reason but I'm just wondering.

    should be a pretty sweet pc.
    you could get a faster SSD tho.
    That motherboard has a m.2 slot which can run m2 pcie nvme SSD's ?
    If so there are ssds that are much faster than the evo 850 you have included.

    Yeah, SATA bottlenecks SSDs (even SATAe). If your mobo supports M.2, go for it (ex. Samsung 950 Pro). You can always go with PCIe SSDs, but they're quite expensive.

    Are you planning on overclocking?

    If yes: I would recommend a better CPU cooler for higher clocks and overall lower temps (ex. NZXT Kraken X61)

    If not: you don't need the ''K'' version of the CPU, and you don't need Z170 mobo chipset, you can go with H170.
    For the KB, I would suggest getting a Razer Ornata for the price range, or you can pay extra for the Ornata Chroma with 16.8M RGB lightning.

    For the mouse, I would recommend the new DeathAdder Elite. A good all-rounder. If you play MMOs you may want to check out the Naga series.

    If you want to invest in a very good soundbar, check out the Razer Leviathan.

    Consider -144hz monitor maybe with G Sync
    -Deathadder mouse
    -Liquid CPU cooler, will allow you to reach higher clocks
    You can drop the ssd for more funds, I would say a better monitor outranks ssd
