using the same site again and adding the missing parts and a better mobo would give you the total amount of 2200usd
with the extra 400 bucks one could get a better cpu with more cores and an even better mobo

I don't want to beat a dead horse here, but you can't add all of that and spend 600 more dollars. The additional 960 is 450ish by itself. Over 300 for the additional wd drives. Another 100 or so for the 120gb ssd. Another 100 for the motherboard I actually bought. The case another 80ish. The memory (faster) another 40 ish. There are numerous things that fall short on the build you quoted. No blue ray, keyboard etc.

I'm not saying you couldn't find it cheaper at all perhaps you could. Not that much however, and the difference isn't worth my time since I have a long standing business relationship with newegg.

Samsung MZ-V6P512BW 960 PRO M.2-2280 SSD 512GB 512MB $0.582 $298.00
Samsung MZ-V6E500 960 EVO M.2-2280 SSD 500GB 512MB $0.468 $233.88
Western Digital WD2005FBYZ Gold 3.5" 7200RPM 2TB 128MB $0.057 $114.99

its all on that list but whatever
I was just curious about how much your build would actually cost if purchased from the cheapest vendors

yes I noticed that I didn't look at your quote correctly. It was a 1 tb 960 vs. the 2 550gb that I actually used. Some of the prices you quoted do look a little lower, although not not and day different. I also had 2 4TB WD Mybooks on that order that I wasn't thinking about earlier.

Looks to me without putting a lot of work into it, that if everything were apples to apples your quote would end up about $100 cheaper than the build I did through NewEgg. Not insignificant but overall pretty close.

Well I was actually surprised when you said that you paid 2.6k for a computer with a rather mainstream i7 and gtx 1060 forgetting that high quality HDDs and ssds are still very expensive.

I am actually waiting for the release of the Coffee Lake i7 8700K with 6cores and 12threads.
Since it will be the direct successor to the current 7700K it will also be a bit cheaper than the current Skylake Extreme cpus while also requiring much less expensive motherboards

I am doing the same. I had all my components in boxes ready to build the PC last weekend but have since returned the Mobo and i7-7700k. Now I incessantly google "coffee lake" trying to get more info and a pre-order opportunity :-) Hoping for Oct. 5th, but it is what it is.

I guess it really depends on what you mainly use your pc for.
For gaming the new Coffee Lake is clearly the better choice while being very close to the 7800x for content creation

I’ve read that one and the dozen or so other articles with leaks of benchtests, mobo compatability, etc.

I’m not a gamer, but figure the 6 core may future proof a bit if LR is reconfigured to utilize more cores. It’s definitely overkill for my uses at the moment, but that always changes and I don’t want to be two years down the road annoyed that I didn’t get it just to save a few hundred bucks, especially when I was building from scratch with nice components across the board to begin with.
