Hi guys,
I'm new to PC and currently planning to build my first system to get ready for VR game and UE4. My goal is to have a powerful system that is silent and fit right with my working desk, which is pretty small.
Your opinions, comments on my spec would be much appreciated!

Spec:

Processor: Intel Core i7 I7-7700K 4.2 GHz
Graphic card: Geforce GTX1070
Mobo: ASUS STRIX B250G GAMING mATX Mainboard 1151 DVI
Ram: 16GB G.Skill Aegis DDR4-2800 DIMM CL17 Dual Kit
Harddrive: Western (1TB) 7,200 rpm 64 MB cache and SATA 6G connector
Case: Bitfenix Prodigy Micro-ATX
Wireless card: ASUS PCE-AC68 1300Mbps, Wireless LAN Adapter PCI-E 802.11 ac

Question:
1. I'm not sure whether the case comes with Power supply? If I need one, what is the recommendatoin?
2. Should I purchase an additional fan? And if so, which one that is good value for money and silent.

Thank you all so much in advance!!!

Oh my... You need to change your motherboard. That motherboard doesn't support overclocking when your cpu was built to overclock... Look for a z270 mobo.
That case does not come with a Power Supply Unit. You need to buy one separately. I would recommend a 750+ PSU in either gold/platinum. What kind of cooling are you getting for the CPU? I would recommend at least 1 extra fan but again that would depend on your CPU cooler.

PSU recommendations:
EVGA SuperNOVA 750 SuperNOVA G2 Approx 100$
EVGA SuperNOVA 850 SuperNOVA P2 is my personal favorite. Approx 150$

@sprinter Thank you for an answer :)  I've checked z270 for Micro-ATX. What about this one? https://www.notebooksbilliger.de/msi+z270m+mortar/?nbb=...


The motherboard looks good but now here's the problem. The power supply I mentioned will NOT fit into the case you have chosen. Second there is a chance your graphics card will be too long to fit into the case. Both these can be solved by getting a bigger case and an ATX motherboard instead of the mATX.

It's not necessary to swap to a larger ATX case and motherboard. Just keep the mATX parts and get a smaller power supply. You don't need anywhere near 750W anyway, 500W would be plenty.

I would suggest a Corsair Vengeance 550W. Good quality, compact size, affordable price.

@mbilal2 hahaha that's embarassing ... sry about that.
that's a good idea about the case, i'll just change it to this one instead https://www.caseking.de/bitfenix-neos-midi-tower-weiss-...


haha no prob. What is the make of the graphics card? EVGA, ASUS, MSI, etc? It'll be a good idea to get a mobo by the same manufacturer. The case looks great.

@sakkura Thanks a lot. The PSU looks good! I will look into that :) 
@mbilal2 I'm thinking about buying this graphic card https://www.oneupyou.com/index.php?route=product/produc... so it's ASUS. but i guess its ok to use with z270 mobo of MSI? or should I change mobo to ASUS brand?


You can still use an MSI mobo but I would get an Asus mobo just for the consistency. Below are the parts you have chosen along with the power supply that @Sakkura recommended. This doesn't include the CPU cooler so you need to look into that and like I said in my first post, have at least one fan on the case. The case you have chosen already has one in the back. The case color is different but specs are the same.

Just a little P.S.

If you are buying a headset that needs headphones I would also buy a headphone extension cable. They are very inexpensive. This way, if you plug or unplug your headphones they won't cause any wear and tear on the headset's hardware.

You're welcome :D  When these are used there is zero possibility of breaking or wearing out the headphones or the Vive. I just leave them wrapped and clip it to the strap.
