C'mon guys, we can do better!

CPU/Motherboard: Core i5-2500k, ASUS P8P67 B3
CPU Cooler:


RAM: PNY 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1600
GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 6850 1GB
PSU: Antec Plus 550W (Promo EMCKEKD73)
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
DVD Burner: Samsung 22x DVD Burner

Shipped Total: $800.87
After Rebates: $760.87

The P8P67 is a great board, and you won't need anything higher because you don't plan to SLI/CrossFire. The 550W power supply is a bit light, but since you are upgrading to Ivy it will do for any graphics cards in this budget. And what a steal! The Radeon HD 6850 is an excellent bargain - the best price/performance out there - and quite a bit more powerful than the 5770.

As for those case fans, you shouldn't need any with the HAF 912. If you decide to, though, you can get them later. Not essential to the system and all. If you're serious about video editing, a second (or third) HDD would help out a lot. Not required, though.


Hope that helps!

Naw, seriously looks like a good, solid build. If you don't mind an entry level P67 mobo, the Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3-B3 has really done it's job, and then some, for just $110

This is my way of spending 800$ for PC

MoboBIOSTAR TH67B Not so good mobo, but you can replace fro another, for example P67-DU4 would be in future pretty good for you
CPUIntel 2500K-the eye-candy for your build, quad core that can be overclocked to 5Ghz-5.5Ghz with normal mobo
RAMG.Skill 2*2GB 1333 CL9-some 4GB ram, can be replaced in future as modernization
HDDSeagate 1TB 7200.12 32m-just 1TB of HDD, with normal speed
VGASapphire 6950 1GB-Great performance with quad core CPU
CASERosewill Challenger-just some case to put all in and to do some air circulation
PSUPSU Xigmatek 700W it's better to use 700W psu for half load then 500W at full load-IMHO
DVDASUS DVD-RW 24B1ST-doesn't matter

This one is DEFINITELY the best one linked so far. You could save a few bucks even, and get the Antec 400 or 430w PSU even. Might even be able to save yourself enough to get a 6870, or a GTX 460 1GB.

Completely forgot about the HAF. That case is nice. Great find on the ram there too.

The reason I made no comments is because you went over budget, picked a mobo that doesn't allow overclock, a generic case, and downgraded the ram I had chosen as well.

Another question. If I put a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ in the HAF 912... Can I put in the 200mm fan?

stupid.....yes mobo sucks, but is it bad to have 6950 instead of 6850 ?
Why you need mobo for over-clocking if your 6850 won't be bottlenecked even with 2500K default frequency ?

generic case ? Seriously ? Why don't you buy case for 500 $ and for the rest 300$ you can buy some office build ? Ha ? pretty good way of thinking.... lame

mh.... people have 25 000 mb\\s read in Everest at 1333mhz and you want more for only 800$ ?


Take my build and replace mobo, for your Asusp67 Pro. But at what component to save ?
Anyway , my build is perfect. Except-mono.
This is because i tried to build modern game PC with great CPU and VGA performance ? Why do you need 2500K at 5-5.5Ghz ? To extract archives for 30 mb size ? or to surf face book ? Skype ? Lol.
