Unfortunately I keep second guessing myself and end up starting from scratch, I looked online and made some comparisons between the i5-2500k and the i7, and with plans of overclocking I decided I'd rather go with an i5 since I won't be using any applications that will require more than 4 cores, or hyper-threading. If anyone has better suggestions that are in my budget that'd be nice too.
So far this is what I've come up with:
CPU: i5-2500k Sandy Bridge
CPU Cooler: Hyper 212 Plus
MOBO: ASRock P67 EXTREME4
GPU: 2 GB EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB @1600
PSU: Corsair Builder Series 600W
SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB
HDD: (None, I have a few already)
Optical: Lite-On DVD Burner
It's probably not the best, I haven't done a build in a long time. So if anyone has anything they think would be better/cheaper I'd appreciate it a lot for some input. Is there any other options that would be cheaper and or more beneficial for gaming?
