Now you can change between the quad core, 8 thread 2600k for a quad core 4 thread 2500k, I suggest buying the K version as it allows for overclocking via unlocked multiplier in the future if you want to go for it, and its not much more expensive than normal 25/600.

As for the parts, there pretty much good setup, if you went for a 2600k, personally i would change the 4gb ram kit for 8gb one, but thats just because ram is so cheap.

I agree with most of this except I feel the H70 is overpriced, grab a CM hyper 212+ for $26 on amazon and your CPU will be fine, he isn't planning on overclocking so why get a $100 cpu cooler? Also, I personally dislike Galaxy, for gtx 560 ti I would say either get the MSI hawk: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127578&Tpk=gtx%20560%20ti since it is the best gtx 560 ti out there, or get an EVGA AR card since it has a lifetime warranty: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130657&cm_re=gtx_560_ti-_-14-130-657-_-Product. The HAF is a great case if your fond of the looks, my brother has one and it looks nice, though if you dislike its ascetics there are plenty of other cases out there.

Well I suggested the H70 as apposed to megahalem as I tryed to think of something simple but effective, I dont think he would relish the opportunity to get into full on watercooling seen as he just starting out.

So what you reckon to likes of Gigabyte P67A-UD3-B3 for his motherboard?

also FBI the gigabyte card is $60 cheaper than the MSI hawk card after MIR.

Excellent mothebroard but the P8P67 has better cooling on the Northbridge

But tbh I'm a little biased since I LOVE my board.

hmm

Op if your definitely not overclocking, buy the 2500k and the GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3-B3.

If you are gonna be overclocking or need more cpu power, buy a 2600k and ASUS P8P67 motherboard.

The 2500k is an overclockable processor, no point in getting it if you're not overclocking.

Even if he is overclocking, he doesn't need an i7...

Nevermind.... lol

What if that's the look you were going for instead of "oh hey look at my metrosexual rig"

Thread Starter 
Thanks for the prompt replies. A couple questions. If the 2600k has features I will may not use now, will this change as newer games come out? Same question for the motherboard. I do want to build for the future as much as possible. Also does the type of games played (RTS's vs. FPS's) affect hardware chocies. (I play both)

Doubtful,

most games at the moment don't support 4 cores. I seriously doubt they'll support hyperthreading in the near future. Also the type of game doesn't really matter. if you've got a good quality GPU then you'll be fine.
