There is no point in getting a i7-7700 nowadays, since i5-8500 is in most cases faster, more futuerproof (six cores), and cheaper too (though it requires a more expensive Z370 motherboard; in the near future cheaper mobos will be released: H370, B360, H310). If this CPU was recommended to you by some sort of shop, then they're most likely just trying to get rid of old stock.


A GTX1060 3GB is not really what I'd recommend (not enough VRAM), though the cards are so expensive nowadays that I'd let it slide. Although personally I'd go for the cheaper GTX1050Ti 4GB and upgrade it when necessary.


SSHD is not an SSD but a hybrid (HDD with SSD cache), and not a great one at that. Buy a proper SSD instead.

Seagate Skyhawk is an HDD designed for video monitoring systems and is not suitable for home use. Instead, get yourself a Seagate ST1000DM010, WD WD10EZEX, Toshiba P300 1TB, etc.


Also, what are the specs of the RAM (speed, latency) and power supply?

The powersupply is Cooler Master B500 V2 and the RAM is 8x2 Ballistix sport.
