If you can add $130 to your budget check the Galaxy gtx 465; very good for the price and a pair of these will outperform a gtx 580
The smaller hard drive seems like a way to save money. And a larger psu would also seem logical since im planning to sli/crossfire in the future (gtx570 or radeon 6950)

That card for $24 is cheap lol. No one would prolly buy that used unless they were in a real pinch I guess.. It's all up to you bud, you're on the right track I think!

Check this PSU out if you want. I like it more and more. Antec has never done me wrong. I'll build about 10 systems a month usually and 90% use Antecs. Got over 10 years in doing this and had only one pop and that was 6-7 years ago

This is very impressive:

The only thing I wont be able to afford right off the bat is the graphics card, but the computer is still useable.

It comes down to this; have a decent performing computer for a few months then buy a graphics card and have an awesome computer, or have no computer for a few months and save up money and buy it all at once and have an awesome computer. Either way the same amount of time and money goes into it, I just get to use it sooner.

Why not just make a 600 dollar AMD APU build? you could grab an APU and a 6670 and stay under 600, and actually have a pretty good gaming machine.


PS cooler master PSUs [save for the silent pros] are bad terrible awful horrible

I figured that once, I was wrong.

Long story short my board is about $50 less than I spent now, My CPU is $40 less now... It's only been a few months.

-To Intel's credit, They don't lower prices. So maybe you will come out the same.

I could push an intel system so much further at the time.

Of course, the 2500k is the better long run choice by a good margin, I was just saying an APU build would be better in the short term.
