My first intel build, please give me some feedback - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
I see many of you recommend the 2500k, I forgot to mention why I'm building this computer I'm going to be using it for gaming as well as video editing. I do a lot of video editing for school and the slow speeds of the macs at school drive me crazy. I thought it would be worth it to pay an extra $100 for the 2600k, what do you people think? Would the 2500k still be a better choice?

I also agree with the blu ray drive thing someone mentioned, other than "despicable me", I have no blu ray media and restarting my movie collection would be a pain. So I'll use my old cd/dvd drive and save the $60.

And with the SSD, I think just for windows 7, 64 gb should be fine, I only plan on having the OS and one editing program on there any ways.

About the monitor, I'm wall mounting with limited space so I have no choice but stick to under 25".

I live in Canada so I'm going to be buying most of this stuff from NCIX and Canada computers. For the PSU I think I'll just walk in and ask for the best thing they recommend at around $100, haha.

Right now I'm stuck between the 2600k and 2500k, and what to do with the extra $60 from the not buying the blu ray drive. ($160 with 2500k). More suggestions please! I'll make a revised list soon

The 2500k will still rip through the video editing just fine but what you have to consider is it really worth the extra $100, Or will you be doing more gaming ?. I also sometimes do video editing but i would say i use my computer for gaming more often so an ssd and a better gpu really are more usefull to me.

If your really into your multitasking / video editing etc then go for the 2600k especially if you can afford the extra $$$, If your on a tight budget then consider carefully and build to your needs.

I think I'll get the 2600k just for the sake of having an i7, and it'll future proof me a bit seeing how I won't be upgrading any more for quite some time. Should I use my old 4gb DDR3 1333Mhz ram instead of buying 8 gigs? Instead I'll use the combined saving from the ram and blu ray drive and dish out another $100 for another GTX 560ti, worth it?

SLI GTX560ti has 2gb total vram and is about $500USD,

GTX 580 3GB of vram and is $590-600USD.

since most of this is rig is gonna be used for gaming I would do some research on what games you plan to play and weather or not they run well with sli or not. Now as far as the GPU's go either set up is overkill since your only gonna run one monitor for now but if I was given the option to choose I would get a 3Gb gtx580.
