Leap from Pentium E2180 to i5 2500K? - Page 6

post #51 of 67
Okay, here's what I've come up with....

Asus DVDRW Drive - $19.99 Free Shipping (use promo code)
Samsung F3 1TB - $57.99 Free Shipping
Antec EA430D PSU - $44.99 Free Shipping
GSkill Ripjaw X 2x4GB DDR3-1600 - $44.99 Free Shipping (free 4GB Flash Drive) (Wait till 1pm PST to order these to get the deal)
Biostar TP67XE - $124.99 Free Shipping
Intel Core i5 2500k - $219.99 Free Shipping
CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ - $28.43 Free Shipping
EVGA B-Stock GTX470 (part number: 012-P3-1470-RX) - $159.99 (unsure about shipping)

Total comes to:
$498.38 (newegg)
$57.99 (superbiz)
$159.99 + shipping maybe? (EVGA)
Grand Total = $701.36


You can shave $50 off that, by going down to the B-Stock EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1024MB FPB (Free Performance Boost) (part number: 01G-P3-1370-RX).

So for right on budget, you're looking at a GTX460 1GB build. For $50 over budget you can squeeze a GTX470 into budget.

You could also save almost $30 by removing the CM 212+, and just using the stock cooler for now. That only puts you $20 over budget with the GTX470. And if you don't NEED the DVDRW drive, there's another $20 saved, but remember that LGA1155 doesn't have any IDE connectors for older drives.

Honestly, I'd keep the cooler on there. It's one of those things where if you don't buy it now...you won't later. That, and it kinda gives you that go ahead to abuse your CPU however and whenever you'd like

Thing is though, if he's wanting faster gaming performance, a better GPU (GTX470) will benefit more than a better cooler. The i5 2500k will do 4.0GHz+ easy enough on the stock cooler. It'll top out around 4.2-4.4GHz depending on the chip. The CM 212+ will only get him to 4.5-4.6GHz at most.

I'd rather see the better GPU over the better cooler to start. Because if he's REALLY wanting to push that chip, he's going to need a much more expensive cooler anyway.

He probably means opening/closing, flipping & tabbing the browser and such. When the window is open, it's your internet from there. Everything up to that point is the machine.

I agree with xBx. You'll see a huge difference, Camp.

You make a great point! Yes, if it means getting a better GPU...do it!! I probably grazed over that point. I have the same cooler, and it was almost humorous at how easy it was to get the chip to 4.0...so yeah, take Pioneers advice there - your gaming experience will thank you for it!

The case I have in my closet actually already has a drive inside of it. Bought it like, 3 months ago so I am good on that. I'll tinker with the prices a little and see what I can find!

Thanks a lot guys! Other forums I have been to haven't been near as helpful

OP will even notice a difference once you are on websites, not a basic forum, or anything like that. I have both systems setup right now, and with sites with crazy amounts of jscript there is a noticable difference in rendering using the same internet connection, and the same browser (chrome).

well not incapable of browsing the web, but comparing the two systems there is a noticable difference. modern websites can get pretty cpu intense, especially if you start steaming h264 video with a plug-in.

If its a SATA DVD drive, then knock the DVD Drive off, the cheap $30 cooler, and get the GTX470 off B-Stock.

You can always buy a better cooler later. The stock cooler will get you to 4.0-4.4GHz (depends on your chip).
