SCORE! New pc, NOW, but... What should I buy?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I recently got hold of some sweet sweet money and I've waited for this for a REALLY LONG TIME. Many birthdays were a big dissapointments
Here is what me and my buddy put together:

ASUS P8H67 with Intel H67 chipset
Intel Core i5-2500/3.3GHz 6MB
Thermaltake armor A60 full tower BLACK
Club 3D GTX 560 TI PCIE 1GB GDDR5 2X DVI
Kingston Valueram/2GB 1333MHz DDR3 CL9 DIMM x4
Sharkoon RUSH POWER 600W


And then there is the request:
I would like to know, if it would work and if there are some better options avalible for similar price.

PS: I got the monitor and other essential stuff. Exept my mouse... I somehow managed to totally brake it in 10 days... It had worked fine for 5 years!

Budget cant be over 800 euros!

if you can spare ~$15-20, maybe go for the i5-2500K? But then you'd need a p67 mobo to get the best out of the CPU.

Also, I bet some here will recommend a different power supply. At least I've never seen that brand of PSUs.

Are you buying in the united states or somewhere else? Based on the Club3D gfx card, I'm guessing you're somewhere in europe. At least not in the US.

You definitely want the 2500k. The K means that it is unlocked and is well worth the extra money! I have never heard of the PSU manufacturer so I would read up on them

Better question is, what is your budget so we can suggest best bang for buck parts.

Also where you would be purchasing from

Most of it looks good. If you plan on only gaming, go down to 4gb. Unless you are doing anything that needs a lot of RAM, like 3D profesional video editing or using programs like AutoCAD, then 8gb of RAM is pointless.

Another problem is the PSU, never heard of Sharkoon. I can't find much on a google either. Switch to something like Antec Earthwatts, Corsair, Seasonic, etc.
This PSU would do great. here's a nice corsair http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005

The mobo is H67, and I find it pointless to get the H67 if your not using the integrated graphics. Its an okay mobo overall, but you can find better for around that price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138317
You also might as well spend an extra 10 bucks on the 2500k if you want to overclock at all.

Dont forget the DVD drive either. or any extra's you might want.

Edit** Oh, and list your budget please, YokuG.

I already got 1 tb of space, I'm going to buy more later, wait for the price of SSD to drop a little.
