i5 for Brother

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Basically me and my brother just got our own place together. I just got my i7 back after a mishap with a moving company gladly to say. He's never played on a i7 or been around a i5 before. He wants to build a i5 and is borrowing 2,500 from our aunt to make the rig

What I've come up with what he wants so far is
HDD(storage) - 1tb singport f3 - $59.99
SSD(boot) - crucial 64gb - $109.99
Case - Corsair 600t White
MB - EVGA P67 FTW - $249.99
Ram - Corsair Vengeance 16gb(4x4gb)[newegg red] - $129.99
CPU- I5 2500k sandy bridge - $219.99
GPU - EVGA GTX 460(fermi) x2(SLi) - $379.99
CPU Cooler - Corsair h100 - $109.99
PSU - Corsair hx750 - $143.99
DD - LG Black 12x dvd r&rw, 10x BD Burner - $79.99
Keyboard - Logitech G510 - $94.99
Mouse - Logitech G500 - $49.99
Fans - Cooler Master Sickleflow(red) x4 - $39.96
Monitor - LG 22" Widescreen Backlit LED x2 - $311.89

Total = Roughly $2,140(haven't added in rebates from certain things)

Would his Power Supply be good enough to push the comp into the 4.0-4.5gh range? I'd personally think it'd be enough but I went with 1200 on my system so I know I'm more than set, I'm a noob when it comes to voltage as I've never had to worry. He still needs to get a desk with the rebate money & leftover cash but wants to make sure the PSU is powerful enough to support OC'ing before he goes out for that.

He could definitely save on the case if he doesn't already have it. He doesn't really need a SSD though they are nice to have. You can find cheaper RAM with the same performance such as Gskill. You only really need the H-100 if you want to squeek out a few extra mhz at the end, just about any good $30 cooler will get you to 4.5ghz.

Just from a money standpoint you could save some cash and borrow a little less from your aunt.

The PSU is more than sufficient for anything he wants to do with that system.

Crosshair V is an AMD AM3+ motherboard. Wont work with an Intel chip.

Look for Motherboards that have socket 1155.

Edit:

The intel ROG full size board is much more expensive...

Z68:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131760

or You could get the mATX Z68 for a lot cheaper:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131759

Out of stock currently. No surprise there, it's a kick ass board for the price.

Instock at the tiger though:

A lot of wasted money. Got for a Single GPU, GTX460 are trash for 2K build, 16Gb is overkill, 2K build needs 2600K, Also toy dont need s H100 for 4.5Ghz, H60 would do just fine.

I agree with Zealot, I couldn't look past the fact that you had a MB that wouldn't work with your CPU first time I looked.

Get a single better GPU, get a smaller PSU unless you know you will SLI/CF with your single better GPU later on. But he probably wont. 8gb memory is all you need.

$80 for a dvd burner....Ouch! Lets shoot more for $25.

Also, looking at your dual monitors I'm guessing you mean to run them in surround. Which means much higher res, you need more memory out of your gpu then 1gb. Getting a single 2.5gb gtx 570 rather then 2x 1gb 460's would do you better as you start getting higher and higher resolutions. Especially if you plan to grab a third monitor down the road!

I'll try to talk him out of the case I offered him my old 690 but he said no I know he wants a window & I believe he wants it to match his car[white exterior w. red/black interior]

I'll put the cheaper ram on his list because it's nothing major. I also agree with the SSD bit maybe he can snag one for black friday for cheaper and not have to pay so much back to her. I also believe he wants the h100 to go higher in OC'ing later on, but I will try to convince him to save anyway he can

Id go with this mobo $200 and will do everything you are needing it to.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131730

I would also agree to go with a better single card rather than two 460s.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127564


Also I would look at this RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231455

if he's really stuck on wanting a higher end cooler might look at getting an XSPC RASA R240 kit for around 130-140 will outperform the H100

would also look at ditching the keyboard and go with a mech keyboard like the Razer Blackwidow. I got one after using a G15 v2 and I prefer the mechanical keys of the Blackwidow so much more.

Get a single better GPU, get a smaller PSU unless you know you will SLI/CF with your single better GPU later on. But he probably wont. 8gb memory is all you need.

$80 for a dvd burner....Ouch! Lets shoot more for $25.

Also, looking at your dual monitors I'm guessing you mean to run them in surround. Which means much higher res, you need more memory out of your gpu then 1gb. Getting a single 2.5gb gtx 570 rather then 2x 1gb 460's would do you better as you start getting higher and higher resolutions. Especially if you plan to grab a third monitor down the road!
He says he wants to do SLi in the future since he'll go with a better GPU for now. I tried convincing him all he needed was 8gb, Now he believes me

The burner is also a Blu Ray burner, but if there's a cheaper one out there that's reliable please post it here I'm more then glad to help him save
