The Almost Didn't Happen PC.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Quick story: I was going to buy PC parts from fellow OCN members to hopefully get some good parts at a great price. I became aware that we had some unexpected bills that came in and I was unable to buy them at the time. Come to find out the bill was reduced and my build was saved. Unfortunately the parts I had on hold were taken off because I didn't think I could afford them at the time.

So here it is my 1k rebuild

New Parts:
CPU: core i5 2500k
RAM: 8GB DDR3@1600 G-skill sniper low voltage
MOBO: ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 Z68
GPU: EVGA GTX 560ti 2gb
Key/Mouse: MS x4 Sidewinder and Logitech G400
Monitor: Asus 21.5" 1080p 2ms
OS: Win7 64bit Home premium
Controller: MadCatz 360
Headset: Creative Fatality

Old Parts:
Case: Corsair 800D
HD: WD 500gb
Monitor: Q7 19" for browsing
DVD: lightscribe cheapo
PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower 850w Modular

No CPU Cooler?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 one of the best air coolers you can get for that price range.
You should also take a look at the mechanical keyboards, I've never used one but I've heard that they're worth the price.
Instead of the 560 TI 2GB you could get the 6950 2GB MSI Twin frozr with a high chance of unlocking to a 6970: (also comes with a free dirt 3 coupon)

The PC is already built and running.... I'll never buy an AMD GPU ever... and no, stock cooling is fine for now.
