i5-750 build help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I posted an i7 setup yesterday I was considering building for a friend. Now that I reconsidered his goals, I think I might go with an i5 setup. He doesn't want to overclock so I think the i5 750 will be just fine for him. Am I right in my though process?

I'd go for a different set of RAM, you can get 2x2GB kit of 1600MHz for the same price (like these) the low-pro set for $95 looks nice.
(Just picked up the CAS7 ECO set myself for an i5 build).

Everything else looks fine, though I'd get 64-bit Windows over 32-bit if you plan on using all your memory
Didn't see a HSF in there though; you said your friend won't be OC'ing, are you?
