PC Build Guide – November 2016
Welcome to the November version of our PC build guides. As usual, we have implemented price limits ($500, $800, $1300, $1800) on ourselves and have had to make tough decisions with each build. Your personal budget will likely be flexible, but we hope this article will give you a baseline. You can of course spend more or spend less, but you could run into diminishing returns at either end. Please keep in mind that pricing information is immediate and may not necessarily reflect real prices by the time you have read this article (all lists priced Nov. 2nd 2016 @ noon EDT).

NOTE: The incompatibility with the M.2 SSD in the July build has been taken into account and the SSDs in this build guide are compatible with the MSI Z170A motherboard according to the data sheets. This board requires M.2 SSDs that operate in PCIe mode and are not compatible with M.2 SSDs running in SATA mode.
Prices may vary depending on the time and demand. As the shopping season approaches keep an eye out for sales that pop up.
Since cases tend to be personal preference, would you, as the community, prefer to see the builds exclude cases in the component costs? Let us know in the comments.
