You may consider getting a GTX 580 since its only like $100 more, maybe less after rebate. Depends if you'd need it tho (size of monitor).

What's your Budget? Any Overclocking? Stock Cooling?

I don't want to go over 1000$ for the rig... And if I can downgrade a few things that aren't necessary (Ex: motherboard / Power Supply) since I don't really know if I really need a 600W or if there's another motherboard cheaper that would do the job as great as this one, etc.

I'm really beginning into PC building that's why I'm asking myself these questions about the motherboard and power supply.

I'd like to experience some overclocking but right now I'm not that deep into that subject... And what do you mean by stock cooling?

Thanks again for you reply smile.gif

EDIT: forgot about the monitor... I'll probably buy a 32" TV 1080p and connect it via HDMI for my monitor... There are some great local deal for that.

If you go any lower on the motherboard the quality of the parts (capacitors etc.) will go down as well; tho Asus is one of the better brands. It may also limit overclocking via bus. Since you have an unlocked multiplayer you may not have to worry about that.

600 watts is the lowest I'd go also for the psu. That 570 takes a bit of juice and if you overclock the processor you may be getting too close to your limit. Be aware that you won't get all 600 watts promised. Usually your can find the actual, or "true" wattage by multiplying the amps across the 12v rail by 12v ( so in your case 12x40 = 480 watts. Which is a lot less than the advertised 600). At a true maximum of 480 watts you'll be fairly close to your limit of power with little to no overclocking of the processor.

If your looking to save some cheddar, the only thing IMO you could go cheaper on is the case. Maybe look into the Cooler Master storm scout or Antec Nine Hundred. Those are great cases for the price, but it ultimately comes down to features and esthetics.

When I say stock cooling I'm referring to the heatsink+fan that comes bundled with the processor. I'm sure it can handle light overclocks (any thing 4ghz and under) but anything higher to u may want to get a better cooler. If you want to go higher than that, thats a whole different thread lol.If you do overclock just be midful of your temps (stay below 75 degrees C). The Hyper 212+ or Hyper and the Hyper 212 EVO are two of the best and cheapest cooler on the market ~$20-30.

Sorry for the typos, typed on iPad. May auto correct die a slow and painful death!

Just so I understand are you saying you have the I5 2500K and 570 already? Or are you saying you do not want to change them?

xnuw gets a bump for the build he did. Looks like a winner. Newer card on a 600W PSU is a much better choice.

Fair enough. I was being hassled at work to hurry up on the computer so I just kinda shaved some money off lol. Good for you though for having the time to do that. Reminds me of when I was on here a few years ago.
