Hello everyone! First time poster here. Was wondering if you guys could check my build and give me some feedback. I definitely want the i5 2500K. Everything else can be interchangeable, based on your expertise. I am looking to play BF3, Skyrim, and Star Wars The Old Republic. Keep in mind I already have an SSD and a hard drive, so I will be purchasing the following:
CPU: Intel i5 2500K - $189.99 - NCIX
MB: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 - $124.99 - Newegg
Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) - $29.99 - Newegg
PSU: Mushkin Enhanced Volta MKNPSVT650 ATX 12V 20/24PIN Power Supply - $29.99 - NCIX
Total w/ tax and shipping = $738.12
I tried to compile this from various builds around the Intel and AMD forums. As always, lower price and better performance builds are appreciated, but I'm trying to keep my budget around $750 - $800.
