Hows this 2500k build? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
Okay i very much appreciate all the suggestions heres the new line up

Asus P8P67 PRo
Samsung F3
GTX 560 (always been an ATi guy hopefully its good) oh and is the 560 dual gpu card?
Gskill ripjaw ram, is 4gb enough for a gaming rig should i go for 8gb?
Not sure on PSU kind thinking i wanna go modular, i am a cable management freak. Might pay a little more and just get modular.

And i was just at Microcenter they has the i5 2500k for $179 probably gonna go back and get it tomorrow. I couldn't believe it was that cheap at a retail store, like $45 savings.

Microcenter has either the regular P67 or the Pro with the i5 2500k for a combo price of $280-$290. Check the deals section.

4gb is more than enough for gaming, but if you can get an additional 4gb for $20 or so it's probably worth it.

If you want to max out games I would recommend a 6970 or non reference 570gtx but rest looks good!

I have an 8Gb(4GbX2), but i dont think my system has even used 4Gb yet. So if you want to save money, or get ram with better timings then get 4Gb. And you could always get another 2 sticks later if needed.

My GTX 570 doesnt max out every game i play. Examples: Just Cause 2, Assassins Creed Brotherhood, Crysis. You have to turn AA to 4x-8x depending on game.

Yeah getting a 570 or a 6950 will be too out of my price range ATM. Or i would get that.

All looks good. If you are going to pay $175 for a 6850, i would try to get a used 5870 which would yield more performance than the 6850. Also, I have seen alot of post with problems from Asus boards plus the profile glitch which has been said to fry Cpu's. I would go with the asrock extreme or this gigabyte board.

Most of these have been fixed with the latest Bios (online) and the profile glitch is something that he won't have to worry about unless he OCs, if he does OC, just make sure you don't use offset vcore... for now, or if you do just double check when using multiple profiles for it.

The P8P67 Pro, the UD4, Extreme 4 are all good boards, I would go for the Asus if you want the UEFI and longer warranty, The gigabyte for looks (imo the all black looks a lot better than the others), and pick the Asrock if you want to cut some $$, but still get a solid performer.

Since you said you live near a micro center. I would pickup this combo : http://www.microcenter.com/specials/...NDLEpromo.html and save some cash. The mobo is not the pro version, so it does not have SLI/CF capabilities, but other than that it is the same.

As far as PSU's go, I would recommend corsair tx/hx/ax series, or if you still want modular at a slightly less price I have heard some good things about this psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tem=17-207-007

Cases, I am very biased here, I like the HAF 912 (60$) or the HAF 922 (90$)

Also I didn't see a CPU cooler, you can pick up the Cooler master 212+ at microcenter for 25$
