Windows 10 Workstation Computer

After much research, I’ve upgraded my computer and to save you a bit of hassle, here’s the components I think are worth buying:

SSD Samsung 960 EVO Polaris 250GB M.2 1 £149.99
SSD 250GB 850 EVO SSD 1 £86.99
HDD WD Red 3 TB x 2 2 £209.50
Bluray Writer Pioneer BDR-209EBK 1 £66.42
Bluray Disks Verbatim BD-R 6x 50 x 25GB 1 £20.94
Graphics Card Radeon RX 480 Nitro+ OC 8192MB Graphics Card 1 £239.99
Motherboard Asus Z170 Pro Gaming Intel Z170 1 £133.98
CPU Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz 1 £312.95
CPU Heatsink Noctua NH-U12S 1 £54.95
RAM Corsair Vengeance LED 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3000MHz 1 £200.82
PSU Seasonic X-Series 750w 1 £89.99
HDD Holder Icybox IB-158SK-B 2 £33.98
Mouse Pad G-HXL Heavy Extra Large Pro Gaming Surface 1 £12.95
SSD Converter SST-SDP08B Bay Converter 3.5 inch to 2x 2.5 inch 1 £6.95
Thermal Paste Arctic Silver 5 1 £5.99
Fan Corsair Fan, SP120 PWM Low Noise High Pressure Fan 4 pin 1 £32.99

I don’t normally care about fans, but these are EXTREMELY quiet and because they are 4 pin PWM fans, the motherboard can select a much lower power setting than with normal fans. In regards to the graphics card, I took a gamble. The NVIDIA 1060’s are probably better performance for the money.
