Read the rest of the thread. OP has already said he will probably overclock.

Well Hyperthreading is used in many games now but I do agree, get a 2500K.
For gaming and 90% of what people use their PC for the LGA1366 boards are just as fast as anything out there.

Based on andrew's build, heres my suggestion.
Anw, if you are getting a H61 mobo, I would most definitely get an i3 and a P67 board instead, then get a i5k/i7k in the future for more performance as a CPU upgrade is way easier than a mobo upgrade w/ CPU cooler (probably cheaper by that time too). Plus an i3 wont affect games that much anw over a i5/i7. Heck, the i3 1155 does better than AMD's offerings in certain games when clock for clock matters more.

Plus, GTX 460 > 550ti.
this is the best advise you got in this thread. i3 is more then enough for any, and I repeat, ANY game today. It's a great CPU for gaming and regular desktop work. You won't need anything better for quite some time. GPU power is so much more important, so invest the difference in money in a better graphic card. Down the road Ivy Bridge is coming, so your upgrade path is good too... if you ever need that much CPU power with a single 1080p monitor and a single GPU.

some good suggestions,

if not overclocking then go for the Pentium 1155's (G850)?

Here is my suggested build, everything (No OS)



500 is very cheap, but this is a good start!

One of my fren told me that i3 and i5 is not good. Otherwise I would've gone for i5 gaming built.

Your friend does not know what he is talking about. There are so many comparisons between an i3 and i7, they are equal in most game with one graphics card.
