Cheap Build...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay so i will be retiring my GTX 580 soon, it was a good run but when daddy kepler shows his face i will be upgrading...

However i will be putting the 580 in a build for the rest of the family most of whom are still rocking IBM think pads from 2002. So here is what I am thinking.

CPU- 2500k off of Ebay for cheap
Motherboard - EVGA z77 board (IVy may or may not come later)
RAM - already bought (unwillingly, darn little kids) 16GB G. Skill 2x8GB @1333MHz with 1.5V
GPU - my 580's retirement home
Case - once again a retiree, my THOR v2
PSU - ripped out of a current tower 650W
HDD - taken from a laptop with fried CPU (800GB)


what do you think for somthing that will probably at most see 1080p 60hz and at most play BF3 but probably only things like minecraft and a bit of video encoding. (not much any more than a little and we just use the monster i am on now)

any thoughts?
