[Solved] Intel 2500k budget build $800 max - Page 7

No. Just no. Let's break this down, shall we?

You're already off to a bad start. Why did you pick a K-Series CPU with a motherboard that doesn't take advantage of it? Also, it only has an absolutely, laughably stupid 6 power phases.

The motherboard, like the power supply, is such an important component that you cannot afford to cheap out here. Also, the P8P67 has these extra things: can use RAM higher than 1333MHz, 2x PCIe, 2x PCI, 2x SATA II, and 4x USB 3.0 ports.

You also suggest a later upgrade to the $190 UD4 or the $180 P8P67 Pro, which is just more money that isn't in his budget.

RAMG.Skill 2*2GB 1333 CL9-some 4GB ram, can be replaced in future as modernization
The RAM I linked is cheaper ($34.99 AR vs $43.99) and faster (DDR3-1600 8-8-8-24 vs DDR3-1333 9-9-9-24).

No. Really, man, is this your first time? The Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB is not only a ton faster than your Seagate, it's the same price. (actually, it's cheaper right now)

VGASapphire 6950 1GB-Great performance with quad core CPU
Admittedly, the HD 6950 is the better card (though why only the 1GB version?). However, in a budget this tight, I cannot justify crapping out on all of the other components for a few frames per second. GPUs are easy enough to upgrade or CrossFire/SLI (note that the P8P67 cannot SLI), though, and I'd rather that my motherboard didn't explode.

Furthermore, I have the HD 6850 myself and I haven't found a game yet that it cannot max full 1080p resolution. I also see that you have one in your sig rig. Why not a HD 6950, if they're so much better?

This is a decent case, but the HAF 912 is much better and often drops to $49.99. Right now, it's only an extra five bucks.

PSUPSU Xigmatek 700W it's better to use 700W psu for half load then 500W at full load-IMHO
According to this thread the HD 6850 only needs 155W and the 6950 only needs 180W. AnandTech benchmarks shows the total maximum system power usage as 274W for a 6850 and 320W for a 6950. The Antec 550W is an excellent PSU and has plenty of power.

That XFX is a good PSU, but it's also an extra $30 and more power than he needs.

Did you look at the shipping cost on that??

This drive is cheaper because of free shipping.


Quote:
Subtotal:$827.88
You forgot the $13.87 shipping, man, which makes your total $841.75 shipped and $821.75 after rebates. Today's cost on my build is $798.55 shipped and $758.55 after rebates.


Look, my build is a well-rounded mid-range gaming system. Yours gives a few extra frames per second at the cost of a really terrible motherboard.

The P8P67 is a great board, and you won't need anything higher because you don't plan to SLI/CrossFire.

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!
@op: big +1 to this build, it's gonna be really, really hard (if not impossible) to do any better than this at your price point. This is actually a really solid build all around, for $760 that's a steal.

since he came in under budget, you may consider one of these two gpus as a substitute:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150515
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125353

still a 6850, just with a better cooler for more OC headroom. may or may not be worth it, wouldn't be a huge performance increase, though they may be easier on the ear (no idea about that though, so look it up if it really matters to you). still, can't go wrong with exactly what ayyini posted

Oh yes..i forgot that Samsung owns 90% of the market....
Magnificent Drive for housewives )))) To collect pictures from the Web.

I'd like to see some benches of F3 and Barracuda. If you find i will gently agree to comment them.

Oh. And now we discussing optical drive ... Is it important ? Really ? for Gaming ? Or it bottlenecks CPU perfotmance ???? Relax , Dude.

Why does it NEED to be a 2500K? Why not go with an AMD processor? You can then spend more on a quality PSU, GPU ect.

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$ ?


Hm....great.Brilliant brains to save money on VGA and to spend them in case, in memory .What next save some bucks and put them into case fans ? To see some shying ??? LAME... Grow UP
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.
I've got a better quality build myself thanks.

I don't want to go AMD because I would have to wait til June for bulldozer. And I will be using more processing power with Photoshop and the Autodesk Suite.

EDIT: LOL at below post!
Just go with this. Can't beat the performance at this pricepoint.
The 6850 will pretty much max out every game on a single monitor 1080p setup (with the exception of Dragon Age 2 and Metro 2033).

OC that 6850 and you will be flying.
