2500k-need help cutting costs of build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So today I was playing the witcher 2 and metro and thinking this computer is getting slow on me. Now i knew this isnt the worlds fastest computer but for my taste's in my favorite games the fps is to low and video editing (somthing I just got into) is taking to long. I decided a new sandy bridge build would be perfect.I know I have to go with a 2500k because of my price but other then that what can I cut. The cost needs to be in CAD and include tax. I play at 1920x1080 as well

Right now with tax: 1,582
Target goal:1,200
here's what's in my shopping card

CPU: 2500K
Mobo: ASUS P8P67 Pro
RAM: G.skill Sniper 8gb DDR3 1866Mhz
CPU Cooler:Thermaltake Frio
GPU: XFX 6950 2GB
PSU: Corsair AX750
Case: Corsair 600T
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 60GB
