[Solved] Intel 2500K Build, Anything I Should Change? - Page 3

post #21 of 31
I would grab this mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131705R

Comes with full 3yr warranty.

Or this if you don't want Open Box:

Thanks. I opted for the P8P67 LE so far because I can get it as cheap as the open box in a combo with the 2500k.

I would like to see you get a slightly better PSU and GPU, and a MB capable of SLI. That would leave you plenty of room to upgrade.

Also the Xigmatek Gaia is perfect for the 2500k. You'll hit 4.5ghz-4.8ghz easily and safely, temps are almost identical to the Hyper212+ but the Gaia is usually cheaper.

Again, combo's will often allow you about $60-100 worth of additional savings or free upgrades to better components, but the ones on offer change so frequently that it's of little practical use to be doing too much fine-tuning of your build now. You clearly know basically what components, it's just a matter of getting the best bang4thebuck now.

Thank you very much for the advice! It's been 2 years since I built my first computer. Built that thing without a graphics card lol.

I would swap that GTX 460 768MB out for the HD 6850. It's faster, and almost the same price range. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...E&PageSize=100

Everything else in your build looks great. As far as which motherboard, perhaps consider one of the new Z68 boards from Gigabyte: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D&PageSize=100

In most cases the 6850 is cheaper.

But it is a lot quieter and more powerful. The 460 is nice, but the fan gets loud unless you have 3rd party software, but its fricken hot so I wouldn't do that.

What about the 5830. Will it run BF3 on decent settings?

Ide go 6850 because it introduces better tessalation features. Shoot for an open box 6870 if you can find one too!
