Hi can anyone advice this build? is this casing good? looking to minimise space and looking for red theme.

Gigabyte GA-H110M-DS2 + i5 6400 @364
G.skill 2400Mhz 8GB @55
Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual 3GB @ 270' (lazada SG)
Crucial MX300 275GB @112^ (lazada SG)
FSP 550w Hexa @68
Thermaltake Armor A30i Speedy Limited Edition @115
windows10 @reddit
if u die die want that casing it's fine ba.
but i would prefer if u up your i5 to 6500. but that's fine too.
also note that ur mob can only take ram up to 2133mhz.
so that 2400mhz will only run up till that.
since your rig won't take up much power, the 550w psu is not really needed. but i see the price is ok la.

overall, what's your budget?

Can anybody advice which shop in sim lim is recommended for the purpose of installing a rig? I am reusing some parts from my current rig while buying a couple parts online. Will be getting case and psu from the shop and getting them to help me fix up the rig. My main concern would be good cable management. Lastly, whats the approximate labour cost the shops charge for installing a rig?

Thanks for reply. Can I use 1600mhz one? cos i see the price is the same.
Also browsing around online stores like qoo10 is cheaper than pricelist from tradepac. Is online one reliable?

Sorry been a while since i update about pc stuff.
