2500k Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've finalized my summer build, and would like to hear what you think.

i5 2500k
http://www.lapstore.fi/product_info....ducts_id=44637

Kingston 2x2gb 1600mhz
http://www.lapstore.fi/product_info....ducts_id=39479

ASUS P8P67 LE B3
http://www.lapstore.fi/product_info....ducts_id=43660

Palit gtx 460 768mb (for sli)
http://www.lapstore.fi/product_info....ducts_id=38137

Antec high current gamer 620w
http://www.verkkokauppa.com/fi/produ...ATX-virtalahde

Corsair h50
http://www.lapstore.fi/product_info....ducts_id=33117

I'm pretty sure about most of the parts, except for the power supply (will 620 watts be enough?) and the motherboard (good for overclocking?).

Psu is enough yes, although please check reviews on that particular unit before buying it.

As for overclocking if you can afford the slight extra cost buy the p8p67 pro, it will help you gain a higher overclock. Also a high end air cooler will perform better than the H50 so either get the H70 or go air cooling. Apart from that nice build!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that the P8P67 LE supports SLI/Crossfire. I would definitely upgrade to the Pro version for a myriad of reasons. If you're on a tight budget, check out Asrock's P67 boards, they're cheaper but have similar features and performance as the ASUS ones.

Also, what resolution are you running at? I would recommend the 1GB version of the 460 if it's anything higher than 1440x900.

I'd get the P8P67. It won't let you clock any higher, but it has support for SLI not just Crossfire.
