New 2500k build

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN. been a while since i posted a thread but anyway here it goes.

I recently got an i3 550 which works great, i love it. But unfortunately the mobo was defective. So after 50 minutes and a bit of patience the place i got it from is going to take back the cpu and the mobo for what i purchased it for minus the shipping, whatever im happy. Unfortunately my gpu also died, by a mistake of my own...so now i have 500$ and must completely rebuild. parts i currently have are:

550w PSU with 1 pci express connector.
Monitor.
Hard drives
Optical drive
windows etc.

basically i need a mobo,ram,cpu and gpu for 500$, but im lousy at finding good prices. id appreciate anyone who could point me in the right direction, thanks!

Cant see it through a link. Youll have to post a screenshot.

If you are near a Microcenter, definitely buy your CPU and mobo there. You could get a 2500K and a good board for a bit over $300. You dont need a super high end board.

Also, http://ncix.com/. They have pretty nice deals every now and then, often better than the Egg's so called sales anyway.

For CPU+Mobo see this combo deal @ 340 CAD (-$10 MIR). If you are not overclocking heavily then this is a pretty nifty board.

Have a look at OCN's favourite RAM. This can be had for as low as 38.92 CAD. Yau can overclock them to very high speeds or tighten the timings a lot by adding a bit of voltage.

That leaves you with ~120CAD (~130 if you count the rebate) for a GPU. Have it your own way. Or post at what specs you plan to game and someone will be able to recommend a good GPU.
