Building i7 2600k for 700£ ish with monitor/everything

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
EDIT: ALL I need to know now is if the Z-Gigabyte GA-P67-DS3 Intel P67 can handle a decent 24/7 overclock, can anyone answer that so I know it won't like fail/break?


Ok I don't know that much about computers and I would like some advice especially about the mobo.

Here is what I'm planning to order (ordering today within next few hours), tell me if I'm missing anything:

CPU - I7 2600K (will overclock for running 24/7)
230£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/...ource=googleps

Motherboard - Z-Gigabyte GA-P67-DS3 Intel P67 (REV B3) Socket 1155 - Will this survive a 24/7 overclock on quite a bit of load?
70£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Barga...roductId=46337

Graphics Card - Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 6570 1024MB GDDR3
55£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=46271

Memory - 2x 8GB Corsair Vengeance Black (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit
(16gb total)
90 £ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=45493

Cpu Cooler - Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler
25£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=39577

Power Supply - 550W OCZ ZS Series ATX2.2 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply ranges from 550-750 watts, can I go less than 550 with my setup or should I do this as a minimum?
50£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=45457

Hard Drive - 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive
31£ -http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Hard+Drives/SATA+(Serial+ATA)/500GB+to+1TB/500GB+Western+Digital+Caviar+Blue+WD5000AAKX+3.5%2 2+SATA+III+Hard+Drive+?productId=43780

DVD Drive - I need one of these right? They don't come with case I assume? - Sony Optical DVD Writer, AD-7260S-0B, SATA, Black, OEM
17£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=40871

Case - Does this come with a case fan or do I need to buy? - Coolermaster Elite 430 Midi Tower - Black - WILL THIS FIT EVERYTHING?
35£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=41176

Monitor - 22" Arianet MN22AOCF22+ Widescreen LCD Monitor
80£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/...roductId=41892

Keyboard/Mouse - Gigabyte KM7580 Wireless Mouse & Keyboard Bundle
22£ - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Perip...roductId=46192

total price:
£720

This computer will be used to run many instances of a program so it needs the 16gb ram and the graphics card isn't particularly the bottleneck. In this system for what I'll be doing the processor will be the bottleneck (doesn't matter I won't need that much power though) IF I did it to the max.

I was wondering is this a complete set of components and will this be able to connect to the internet or do I need another part for that?(with wire) Also is there anything missing and can the mobo and everything handle a 24/7 overclock as this computer will be running 20-24/7 on quite a bit of load.

Thank you for help!

EDIT: ABOUT TO PURCHASE DOES EVERYTHING CHECK OUT GOOD?

Everything looks pretty decent.

You may want to consider a Dvd-RW drive if you plan on writing to discs.

From personal experience I would advise against a seagate hard drive and go for western digital if you can.

The cpu cooler should be fine, if you want to OC quite a bit I would grab a bit higher end cooler.

The case should be fine, the heatsink may come close to the side window however.

To connect to the internet you need to have a modem and router set up in your house and use an ethernet cable to connect to the router (unless you have wireless, in which case you would need a wireless adapter).

Ask yourself do you require Hyperthreading with any of your applications? If not you could save yourself some cash and go i5-2500k instead.

and

does it look good now?

And also will I be able to plug in the internet cable in or do I need to buy somethign extra for that.

Umm well I'll be running 20-30 instances of a client that uses lots of cpu so I'm guessing that's useful?

Linux probably unless I can scrounge up a copy of windows 7 somewhere, even then I probably will go for Linux as I won't be doing anything on the computer myself.

And the motherboard includes an ethernet port for the cable to plug into.
