That's soooo false d00d..960T @ 4.1 ghz..does quite well..A Clarkdale OCed is better than a locked
Sandy Bridge one.Do you have an i3? lets see what it rates in wei/benchmarks.And 2500K @ stock is NOT
better than an overclocked Zosma.There's no way something clocked lower with 2cores+hyper-threading would be(Such as an i3 2100) typer.gif2cents.gif

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68 $110
Processor: i5 2500K $225
RAM: 8gb G Skill Ripjaw $39
Graphics Card: EVGA 560ti 448core FTW $289
CPU Cooler: Hyper 212+ $27
Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB HD $115
Case: Corsair Rosewill Destroyer $49
Optical Drive: Samsung DVD-RW $17
Monitor: Hannspree 23" 1080p Monitor $149
Total: $1,047.06
There is $30 of MIR, and this doesnt account shipping. If you need to get closer to/under $1000, get a regular 560ti $229
or a used 6970 from the forums here for $250-$260

Best build suggested yet. Only thing I would change is the case to a NZXT source 220. +rep dude

I would also suggest saving money on the HDD and picking up a used one with a warranty still on it. Its so hard to justify paying full prices of HDDs these days.

Wait.

My stepmom has two of these and they are impressive. She has one right next to a 1080p acer and the hannspree looks considerably better. She got them for $110 ea at costco about 4 months ago.

I wasn't really expecting you to put that case on your builds lol. Your NZXT 210 has 1 fan included, the Destroyer has 3, a black interior, rubber grommets for the hdds. We bought the Challanger, SmartOne, Destroyer, and my 400R all at the same time. The destroyer is close to as nice as my 400R honestly, it was very surprising especially for that price. The Challanger and Smart One were not nearly as nice, but still OK for budget builds.

The Source 220 has 2 fans and much better build quality. My dad has that case, I would take the 220 any day over that Rosewill case. The 220 also has much better cable management.

Have you used the destroyer? Cable management is very good actually. The 220 actually does look considerably nicer than the 210. Lots of the newer features in cases. The 220 looks to compete with the Destroyer much better than the 210.
