Not sure on what to get to go with my Intel i5 2500k

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Right basically im thinking of getting an Intel i5 2500k for £163 and im really not sure on what graphics card and ram to get I want a good motherboard for around about £150 and a graphics card for around £200 and the ram for around £150 also because I would more than likely to overclock my i5 I would like to get a better cpu cooler for under £70. I know this alot to ask of you guys but ive searched and searched for about 3 weeks and Im really dont have a clue on what to buy and by the looks of it you guys know best , Im new to Gaming Pc Building as this is my first build
Thanks in advance guys

You defiantly don't need to put that much money into ram.
My suggestion (should translate out to close to the equivalent in British Pounds)

Ram: G.skill Ripjaw X 1600 Mhz 2x2gb ram kit
CPU cooler: Cooler Master 212+ (cheap cooler), not sure if you can get an h50 or h70 or Noctua NH-D14 or Thermaright Silver arrow for 70 pounds.
GPU: Uhhhh might have a little converting but probably a Nvidia 560 Ti, you could take the extra cash from the ram and put it into the GPU and get either a 570 or ATI/AMD 6950.
