I have forgotten to mention about the case. Yes, I have already chosen
one - Cooler Master Elite 430 Black. It is a good one and I think it is just fine.

It seems like I will go with the ASUS P8P67-M. A lot of people told me that
this would be a very good choice. What do you think about the Biostar TP67+B or the ASrock P67 PERFORMANCE?

Emm, ATX or mATX, as far as I know the difference is mainly in the number of expansion slots. In this case, I don't mind ATX or mATX, but if I am wrong please correct me. But anyways, I guess the ATX mobos have a better OCing abilites..

Emm, the OCZ PSu looks a good offer but I have heard bad things about them.Someone once told me that he used to have like 4 OCZ PSus and all
of them ended badly (burned out). Still looking for suggestions here..

Well, I don't like the fact that I will add more RAM later but my budget is tight as I said. I had forgotten about the 2x2GB kits. I really like this G.SKill 2x2GB 1600 mhz kit, thanks for letting me find it !

Ok , gotta go now. class starts in 5 min. thanks everyone! gonna check it later
Meh, I'd pass on OCZ PSUs myself these days.

Well, the case is a personal preference so I'll include it with the following build proposal that falls under your $810 budget:


CASE: CM Elite 430
CPU + MOBO Combo: 2500K + MSI P67 G45
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
HDD + PSU Combo: Samsung 1TB F3 + CORSAIR Builder Series CX500
DVD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST
GPU:

If you want to save some serious cash buy the ram, cpu, psu, cooler, and dvd drive here in the market place. Buy the mobo and gpu new. People here sell a ton of great stuff. And like most ocn-rs, we upgrade constantly! And if you can get yourself some WD blacks, those suckers come with 5 year warranty I believe. Trust me you will probably upgrade to an ssd before the warranty expires. They go for cheap here on ocn

I've been having some bad experiences with my OCZ Power Supply, VERY noisy, wouldn't go with them again for that.(this is my third OCZ power supply.)

If your going to be doing hardcore gaming I agree with PowerTrip. MSI Twinfrozrs are really good for cooling and OC'ing.

Would also go at least 6GBs of RAM for video editing it also helps out with various applications.

You'll never regret going with a Seasonic.

Other than that, just don't settle with a 560. Either get a 560 Ti or a cheap 460 and SLI. 460 SLI beats a 580 in some games, and comes close to it in most.

Thank you everyone!
This HDD+PSU combo looks really, really good and acceptable! I think I will go with it.
It seems like the Palit gtx 460 1G will be replaced with a 560 TI.

Also, I am currently thinking about saving some cash from the case. I can find a cheaper case that will serve me well.. Mm, now I am browsing the market here @ OCN but I am not really into buying used stuff for PC, it is just that I cannot trust people easily when it comes to giving money.. But I will think about it, I am pretty sure we have a lot of
trustful people here..

So what about the mobo? I am currently looking for reviews about MSI P67 G45, I havent heard anything about this mobo..

there is a lot of good people here. i have bought tons of things here and the products have been great. do you research and you will find good quality parts that have a few good years left of warranty. most ram nowadays have lifetime warranty. i know for sure corsair doesnt ask for now original receipt. good luck. and trust a little buddy, look at peoples trader rating. it can help
