Thread Starter 
Hi guys here is my first rig:

Case: CM Storm Enforcer

Mobo: ASUS P8Z68

CPU: i7 3.4ghz 2600 I would have gotten the 2600K but they dont sell them in the philippines

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V8

RAM: Kingston 8gb (2x4gb) 1333

HDD:Toshiba 500gb

PSU: Thermaltake 1000w PSU

Graphics: GTX 550 Ti

Optical: Random LiteON

I was on a very tight budget so I had to save up and buy parts one at a time.

Can you get the 2500k maybe? in games the 2600k wont have any performance benefit.

A 650 will be fine for SLI 460s.

Just out of curiosity why the 1000w PSU for that rig? Seems like you could get away with a cheaper one. Also, if you're tight on budget what do you think about an i5 2500k instead?

Either way the rig will look pretty badass in that case

I think he's already bought the hardware and is just asking for opinions about his choices.

i5 2500K would have been a better choice than i7 2600. The 1000W PSU is overkill. Would have been better off saving up for the 560Ti.

Sorry for being harsh but you rushed the build instead of researching more.

Well... the good news is... if you ever decide to do SLI GPU's in the future the 1000w will most likely be able to handle it

I'm not sure what all is available in the Phillipines so it's hard to judge.

I got the 1000 for future upgrades (dual sli, water cooling)

the videos I watched said not to skimp on the psu

and it was pretty cheap (4500 pesos compared to 5000 for a cooler master 650w, thats about 85 dollars and 100 respectively)

I agree instead of 550 ti get a 460 direct cu and OC it further

2500k would be better for gaming.

The problem is that you can't buy directly from the factory, I tried.

I might get a 2500k in a few months as my friend is building a rig for video editing and I might be able to sell it to him.

Why is the 2500 better than the 2600?
