What about this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130581R

or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130574R

EDIT: Here is what I am at now- Maybe I can get my parents to let me have $60... if Not, using the cheaper motherboard should put me into my budget ($40 of MIR's)

Core i5-2500K + GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 Bundle
PSU: Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W



Another bundle to consider:
Core i5-2500K/P67 Gaming SuperCombo

Same GPU. Without the 1TB Samsung F3 drive, it's $770

...with the drive, the total is $835 and you can use the Barracuda as storage or something.
I might be missing something, but there is no video card on that supercombo anyways

The combo itself is not going to cost anywhere close to $770 if you've noticed....add the GTX 560 Ti card you want. Tada....

Oh and there's a discount code good til tomorrow to take an additional $15 off the 2500K:

Drop the PSU price. You don't really have room in the budget for a modular PSU. I'd go for something 500W, as it'll handle a single graphics card just fine, and even some SLI/Xfire configurations.
I'd drop your motherboard down to an mATX board. Once again, without the need for Crossfire/SLI, and taking into consideration your budget, I'd go for...
This.
In hindsight, that's a full ATX board that fits your needs. Beyond that, there's not a lot you can do. However, that's nearly $100 dollars in savings if you pick the right power supply...

Anything on that Open Box GD65 board?
post #26 of 30
you should refer to my sig rig. it has that board that you want
1680x1050 will be best with a single GTX 560 Ti. 1920x1080 you might want to look into doing SLI with those. these graphics solutions are needed if you want to play crysis at very high settings or with mods.
FSX will run very nicely if you overclock to anything higher than 4 GHz (which 100% of the 2500K will do)
those are pretty much all the intensive stuffs on ur list.

I think the rig that you shows is pretty good. to save some money you could go to microcenter.com and order a 2500K there. i heard they have prices less than $200.

Nah, I don't think I need SLi'd 560 Ti's For 1080p.. only if I want to max it with like 12x AA or 16xx AA. At $170 I really want to go for that Open Box GD80, even though it is overkill for me. I might have to spend more on this build than I wanted to.

2500k + P8P67 Pro
Samsung F3 + Corsair TX850 V2 PSU or Samsung F3 + Corsair CX600
G.SKILL 4gb 1600 cas 8 1.5v ram
COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer
$678.94 or $644.94
Gives you... 120$ for graphics card... and this setup allows you to SLI/CF in the future.

May I refer you to my first post on this thread?

Yes, I know the internals are practically the same, but I still prefer the enforcer.

EDIT: I think I've finally convinced myself that I don't need the GD80 Board, as much as I want it.
I will be switching over the the GD65 open box board and posting another screenshot.

UPDATE:

I'm not a fan on the red PCI-express connectors on that OCZ PSU though... Are those replaceable without voiding the warranty?
