Hello, I am about to start my first PC build for my first SW machine. I‘d would like your help. I am very handy and love a challenge so I decided to try to pack good quality SW supported components into a tiny package. Whatever fab skills I may have I’m lacking in PC tech knowledge. So please take a look at the build list below and let me know if I need to look for alternative components, like a low profile GPU, got any suggestions? I’ll post pics of process. Thanks for looking!

Hardware:
[CPU]:
Intel i5 – 8400

[GPU]: I NEED A SUPPORTED LOWPRO CARD LIKE THE: Zotac GeoForce GTX 1050 Ti Low Pofile

[MOBO]: Asus Strix Z370-I

[RAM]: G.Skill TridentZ RGB 2×8 16GB - 3000

[NVMe]: Samsung 970 Evo 250GB

[SSD NVMe]: Samsung 860 Evo 1TB

[PSU]: HDPLEX 160W DC-ATX

[CASE]: InWin Chopin

[COOLER]: Noctua NH-L9i

 

Other:
[GPU FANS]:
NF-A4x10 FLX x3

[CASE FAN]: NF-A4x10 FLX

[PSU FAN]: SoundOriginal Blower Fan

[RISER]: Fractal Design Flex VRC-25 PCIE x16

 

I‘ll say this now, I know I’m attempting a challenging build and I may not get the results I’m after. At the end of the day, if I fail, I want to be sure I have purchased good quality SW supported components I can put in a larger case. The machine running SW efficiently is my first goal.
