post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So, im going to upgrade from my Q6600 and Ati 4870 to this new beast, please comment freely to help me build the best machine for 2500 usd xD. Suggestions hugely accepted hehe. I already have the corsair 800d case, so the budget will be all on hardware price. And sorry for my english, im from brazil and i havent used it in a while now.

Very looks good but are you sure you want to throw that much money at your machine?

What are you gonna use the machine for?
If you say gaming I would change a few things.

Go with Intel i5 2500k since hyper threading on the i7 2600k won't benefit from gaming would also generate more heat.
Get a G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600MHz
ASUS P8P67 pro will do you just as good
Crucial m4 128GB they raid pretty will together (can't find the review now) but they are also cheaper.
Also look into Samsung F3 1TB instead since you shouldn't be using the marvel controller also they are cheaper and performance pretty well on the SATA 2.
So you only have 2xSATA 3 ports so your SSD would take those two ports since the marvel controller are bad.

I can help you save some money. Get two Samsung F3 1TBs instead. They are comparable to the Caviar Blacks and are $60.

The 570 is good, but if you ever want to go watercooling in the future, there's not full cover blocks for the HD version, get the vanilla GTX 570 if you are planning on going that route down the line.

Ram is fine if you really desire those speeds, otherwise you can get 8GB 1600MHz for around $80.

MOBO/CPU are good choices, although most people here use a P8P67 Pro (just an option to save money while getting same performance). Also the 2500k is nearly identical to the 2600k in terms of gaming, the only thing the 2600k has over the 2500k is hyperthreading which you won't necessarily use if you're just gaming.

SeaSonic PSUs are the best, so excellent choice there.

The H80 is decent, but the Rasa RS240 kit is the same price.

Good choice with the Vertex 3s, but again, do you need two? SSDs are not practical for storage.

These were just some of my recommendations, everything you have is fine, I don't really know your budget-- but my recommendations are just here to save you money.

I was at newegg right now and i gotta say, good recommendation on the hdds.
For the vga i am going to get the twin frozr 3, but yesterday newegg had only 1 in stock. for the MOBO im thinking about the p8z68 deluxe. And for the ssds, im using 100 gig for windows and 100 gig for the main games i play. Im spending this much on the pc cause its for about 4 years of usage, and as I live in brazil, things are really expensive here, this build would be something like 5k usd in brazil.

Is the rasa rs240 a good wc kit for OC to something like 4.5 in a 2500k?
