My (intel) Second Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So Ive recently purchased the MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) and I am at a crossroads between getting a Core i5 and i7. Cant decide..I understand that the board that I am getting is very capable of OCing, Ive never done that before so I want to know ahead of time what it is I need to buy to make this new rig a beast. Memory, Case, Graphics card, cooling system, power supply. Recommendations are certainly welcome, Ive always liked the advice Ive gotten from the people on this forum, so the wisdom of all of you PC Masters is much needed. Thankyou.

If you plan on using it for nothing more demanding then games then go for the 2500K.

Get an i7. i5's are good and all, but i7 is the way of the future; you'll be future proof for quite a long time with an i7. Go for a sandy bridge.
