Building my first VR/Everyday PC help with components


Apr 3, 2017
Hi everyone! I'm building my first PC and I need a little help. First off this PC will be used for everyday use (Stock trading will be the main thing since that's my job) but If I want to game on it I'm making it so I can (VR as well) . It is a white themed computer set up so I'm making the PC match. I'll list all the parts I have already. If you guys have suggestions for better parts I'd love to hear them. Plus If I've missed anything let me know. Thanks a lot.

Processor- Intel 7th Gen Intel Core Desktop Processor i7-7700K

CPU cooling unit- Enermax ETS-T40 Fit Series CPU Cooler 200W Intel/AMD 120mm Dual CLUSTER Fans included

RAM- Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Desktop Memory Kit

Storage- WD Black 2TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM

Samsung 960 EVO Series - 250GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD

Chassis- Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Full Tower Chassis PH-ES614L_WT White

PSU- CORSAIR CXM series CX750M 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply

GPU- EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING, 08G-P4-6173-KR, 8GB GDDR5, ACX 3.0 & LED

Motherboard- ASUS PRIME Z270-A LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI DVI M.2 USB 3.1 Z270 ATX Motherboard

As for everything above if you think I should go with something different let me know. Like I said this is my first time so ALL help is appreciated.


Nothing seriously wrong with the system, but you've gone kinda overkill in a few places. The HDD is twice the price of a standard 2TB HDD that will only be slightly slower. The 960 Evo is also rather overkill for your uses, a 500GB SATA SSD would probably be a better idea in practice and cost about the same. I'd suggest a Sandisk Ultra II:

You don't need a 750W power supply for these components. The Corsair CX units with the grey label are pretty good though, so you could just step down to the 650W or 550W model (avoid the 600W, it's a different design of lower quality).
