Anybody who wants please rate my budget build and suggest what i could've done better and stuff (The GPU is trash, Didnt include it here cause i will upgrade in the future.)
Build :

CPU : Intel Core I5 6600K
MotherBoard : MSI Z170A PC MATE
RAM : Corsair Vengeance LPX 4GB 2400MHz
Cooler : Noctua NH-U9B
SSD : SanDisk 128GB (SDSSDP-128G-G25)
PSU : Antec BP450S

Thanks for leaving any feedback :)

The overall build cost me around 575$ (i live in israel so the pricing here for PC components pretty high comparing to US pricing)

EDIT : I forgot i bought the SSD Last year, it cost me around 75$, so 575+75=650. Sorry for that!

PS You can see all of my PC specs in my profile, All the things i didnt mention here were bought before.

Personally I agree too that the RAMS should be 2 x 4 GB for 8 GB if Mark can afford it and with the prices of SSD's a 256 GB would afford much more overhead later.

Should be fine...

THe ram, I assume is 2x4GB?

No, Its just one stick

and he got the ssd in!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Damn!, i forgot i bought the SSD Before, it cost me around 75$ but it was about a year ago :/

+1 for the SSD 250GB. Have you tried a small overclock around 4.2GHz?

I did overclock it a little bit, to 4GHz, ill try to overclock it till i reach about 75-80 degrees (C), now at full load its not passing the 60 degree mark

I agree that a bigger ssd is always good!!!
I also agree on getting a second stick of matching ram, only 2 things really matter with ram, that you have enough, 8 gigs these days and that it runs in the correct, unganged mode, single, dual, triple or quad.

I know, Ill add another 4GB stick when ill have some money.

4GB really isn't enough these days to game in a lot of cases. I would get another matching stick sooner than later when you start getting into things a bit more. That will also give you dual channel.

Merged your triple posts... please edit to add when you are posting that close. :)

Like this? (The post merging thing, Sorry im new C; )

That is cool that you have overclocked to 4.0GHz, you might be able to go up to 4.2GHz on stock voltage.
