Help with friend's intel build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As now my friend comes over to my house more often to play BF3, he told me that he wanted to build a rig. He said that he really wanted to keep it under 1000, but if he really had to, hes willing to go a little above. I would like to keep it as 2500k/2600k since IVY seems to be quite expensive. Any suggestions?

Here's something I recommended for someone in the same boat just recently. Some of the components are a bit higher end than I would normally recommend, but the build is designed to pick up a another 560ti in the future, and have 0 problems adding it for SLI. Also chose a mATX because I like sff.

There's no need for that expensive of psu. A HX650 would be more than enough. But TX750s can be had for a good deal now.

Does he need monitor/mouse+keyboard?


Corsair 500R Case 129$

Gigabyte HD 6970 2GB Video Card 349$

Corsair TX750 V2 PSU 104$

GSkill Sniper DDR3-1600 44$ 2x4GB

Crucial M4 64GB SSD 114$

i5-2500K CPU 219$

ASrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 Mobo 159$

+$20 DVD Drive

Total: $1138, and get a better graphics card for BF3 than a 560Ti, and you can go crossfire in the future with another 6970, scales better than SLI. And 8GBs of ram.
You will need to scout for a good HDD deal though, prices are jacked up right now on the online retailers.
