School Computer Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
So in school we have this list of parts to choose from. We have a max of 450 dollars to spend. So I was thinking of doing the 2500k with the Gigabyte Z68 board and the Antec 300 Case and the 4 gigs of RAM. We do not need to build a full system.

I was thinking of getting my own powersupply. I am willing to spend some money myself, but at the moment my plan was to make this a media server/XBMC machine. I also have the option of ordering the case, processor and RAM and getting my own Motherboard or other parts.

Thinking about 500 dollars on top of what is here as options would be a fair price. So with that would it be worth it for me to get a Z77 board? I have my "sig rig" below and an Alienware laptop used for gaming. But I was thinking this would be my new gaming rig and task the 920 with the HAF 922 case as my server box. Any help would be appreciated as I need a final order decision by Thursday!
Thanks guys!

You do realize that you're getting a board that can't OC, right? Either get a P67/Z68 board or drop the i5-2500k to the i5-2400.
