    Heck yeah---el cheapo Microsoft for under $15 has lasted me over 6 years of constant pounding.

    I was seduced by a fancy dan mechanical with cherry switches blah blah blah for $100 about 3 years ago. Controller failed in 3 weeks. I was so frustrated I just threw it in the garbage rather than attempt a refund/replacement/dealing with customer service.

    Back to the Microsoft. No clickety click, no bragging, but no frustration.

    Everybody knows that 'gaming' labeled items are automatically x10 better and will make you x10 cooler.

    I think we're overly focusing on the keyboard and mouse where the basics will do just fine. Next.

    A 1060 should be your minimum.

    ... I use a gaming mouse all the time (for gaming and I find the adjustable DPI very handy in Adobe CS6)

    I have been using a microsoft trackball explorer for nearly 15 years. I have 4 of them, keep them at work, etc

    I love the feedback though on mechanical keyboard. I don't need the clickey noise, but i prefer the tactile feedback.

    Problem there was the Fancy Dan model. My Topre, Filco and Duckys are still clicking me just fine

    Can't say the same for all my 'gaming mice' however. Still going to buy them though. Too useful and who cares if they break.

    As to the OP, let the kid buy what he wants. Apart from the 1050ti, his system is solid enough.

    OK. Here are my 4 builds i have been working on. They are all right around my budget, $800-$900. I'm new to this pc building business, so I dont know which one I will get the most bang for my buck. Keep in my also, I am only 15, have no steady income, and have to pay $100 more than half of $800 to $900. So i want the best performance to price ration. Yes, I understand that there is no SSD, and that will be a upgrade for the future. And another thing, I want whatever build I go with to be very future proof, i.e. being able to play newer games in 2 years at reasonable FPS. Oh, I forgot to mention that this build is mainly for gaming. The main games I will be playing are PUBG, CSGO, L4D2, TF2, and Battlefront. So, to reiterate, I want to get the best bang for buck build optimized for gaming, that is future proof, and is affordable. Thanks in advance.

    If he absolutely cannot spend more than that and additionally cannot thereafter toss maybe $10 or $20 a month into a pot for later upgrades, then I could see why he would stay with that $846 build---he'd be expecting to live with that mouse/KB/headphones indefinitely--because he can't afford another dime.

    On the other hand---if he CAN toss $10 or $20 a month into a pot for later upgrades, I'd say he might be better off going ultra cheap on the mouse/KB/headphones now and instead spend that money on more CPU/GPU/SSD.

    Then, 6 months or a year from now, upgrade the mouse/KB/headphones if desired with that newly saved money.

    It's just makes more sense and is much easier to upgrade peripherals 6 months later than it is to upgrade major internal components like CPU/drives/GPU that soon.

    But maybe the OP refuses to spend a single dollar more over the next 5 years barring major failures. We don't know. Maybe he has a weakness for flashing lights.

    And, he could decide after 6 months with the cheaper stuff, that he can live with the cheaper stuff much more easily than he thought.
    honestly that is true. but id rather just get what i want now and then upgrade a year or so in the future.

    Do you also need to factor in the cost of a copy of Windows?

    I hate the term future proof. No matter what you spend, you cannot be future proof. And when you are buying on a budget, nothing is future proof.

    I would recommend getting the 1060 video card over the 1050ti. We have a 6GB 1060 in my sons build and it does a great job at 1920x1200.

    I'm not really a fan of the micro atx mobo. You don't have much expansion room on that board whatsoever.

    The 144Hz monitor will require more video power, as it can display more than 60FPS. So, I'd keep your video card as high as possible if you stick with the AOC monitor.
