Help with a Build - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Argh..I truly recommend p8p67 pro and a 2500K
but ..for a cheaper mobo..
there's the biostar tp67xe
tz68K+
and the asrock extreme3 gen3
They have good used boards @ geeks.com
hrmm..
or maybe a sabertooth/chV
and a zosma? tbh It's about 90% of a 2500K (both OCed)

First off all, you should include a copy of Windows 7 in your budget. (Based off the "This version of Windows is not Genuine" on your desktop).

But the 2500k is a great CPU. You wont find anything that it cant do, and it will be MASSIVELY quicker than your 2.2ghz Phenom quad. And your "future proofed" in case you do get into overclocking. (s a non "k" cpu).

The catch is, you cant use any of our old base hardware (CPU, MOBO, RAM) in your new build. So you will have to buy it together (socket 1155 cpu, and board, DDR3 RAM.)

The ASUS motherboard that Schmuckley lists is a great board, but i still maintain that the ASRock z68 gen 3 is the best board on a budget.

there isnt any "this copy of windows isnt genuine on my desktop"....
but yeah i figured that. is there anything i need to know before swapping motherboards/cpu/ram at the same time on my computer when i do it in the future? like a simple brief step by step of the prep and after work? (software not hardware wise)

I purchased the 2500 and I have overclocked it to 4ghz with the BCLK. saved some money to put towards Ivy when it comes out.

Hey, i tried to edit my previous post to remove that picture, but its not letting for some reason right now, grrr.

That combo is ok. I still maintain that the ASRock z68 -gen 3 + 2500k is the best buy at $~$335. The ASRock has a newer Chipset, PCIE v3, more RAM slots, more expansion, and some PWM cooling. I know it doesnt mean much to you, but its also a potent overclocker, for the money.
