Windows 10: Does this look okay for a <$2000 gaming system that can do anything?

    I'm not making any obvious mistakes with that setup, am I? And it would work with two RX 480's in a SLI setup, right?

    I didn't realize that the partpicker gives me a new url everytime I update. I checked around and made some optimizations to my build.

    I didn't know your budget includes the monitor. So now you downgraded the CPU to i5?

    I'm flip-flopping a bit. It'll be my first proper gaming system, so I want to make sure it's the right setup without being exorbitantly wasteful. After using laptops with low-voltage i3s and i5s I really don't know how to properly gauge what I need. I'm not really planning to overclock - once I set up the system I'll add more storage but otherwise leave it alone until it's completely obsolete - but I don't want to regret overspending on something I don't need or cheaping out on something that's not enough.

    And I'm on the fence as to whether monitors and keyboards should be included in the budget.

    This will be my last question about this, then I won't bother you again. I have tweaked my setup a little and more or less settled on this. I don't really need an i7 or a k series, and the 1070 and 1080 are too expensive in Canada (the RX 480 is $360, but partspicker isn't grabbing the price ATM)

    My intention is to build a system that I can effectively use as a final system. It would replace my current laptop for gaming and general use.I'll admit I'm not really a major PC gamer - while having a large collection due to SteamSales I mostly end up playing on my Wii U (I have a minor buying addiction) and so would at bare minimum have something that handles what I throw at it, even if it isn't the best possible. It would be my first proper gaming system (and my second built system) - and I admit I am uncertain about if I've chosen the correct components and such. I'm undecided on the GPU and might go for the new AMD RX 480, and I have no idea how to choose from the 100+ PSUs that seemingly meet the requirements.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
    With that type of system i wouldn't get a 960 you can get one of those 480's by AMD for 240.00 little cheaper than a 960 or get a 1070 which will actually be a lot better and wouldn't have to upgrade for a least 3 to 4 years depending on the game type also get a 850watt PSU that would be helpful for future purchase always go big in that department because you never know what upgrades awaits you
