Hello. I am building my first PC and I have looked around on other forums and came to a final part list:

I am just wondering if I can optimize anything without changing the price. It says that all the parts are compatible, but could I do anything different.

Looks pretty good. I'd swap the cooler out for a Cooler Master Evo 212 unless you plan on heavy overclocking. The H60 is kind of meh from what I've read. Also you can drop the power supply down to 600W-650W if you need to shave costs somewhere.

He might want to overclock since he wants that $10 tube of thermal compound. I think it's just gimmicky. Diamond nanoparticles? All marketing-speak. Not that it matters though since the budget is $1600.
