Need advice on i5-2500k build

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey so I am currently in the process of making a computer it is my first time so go easy on me. Anyway I need it fot gaming/media and general use like Microsoft office. Also I will be having ncix assemble it for me anyway here is what I got so far.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64BIT DVD OEM $123.77
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=45271

Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan $129.99
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=26415
Will this power supply last and do the job?

Coolermaster Haf 922 Mid Tower ATX Case Black 5X5.25 5X3.5INT Front Audio USB eSATA No PSU $129.99
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=38996

EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Fermi 732MHZ 1280MB GDDR5 2XDVI Mini-HDMI PCI-E Video Card 369.99
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=57361

Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus Direct Touch 4 Heatpipe Heatsink AM2 AM3 LGA1366 LGA775 LGA1156 120MM $29.99
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=41337
This heatsink and fan is compatible with my motherboard and won't get in the way with ram?

Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM $98.37
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=50895
If there are any better choices for the hard drive tell me please.

NCIX Gaming Bundle ASUS P8P67 LE ATX P67 2PCI-E16 Motherboard + Intel Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU $349.99
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=58356
What is the difference between the pro/deluxe and regular board here?

G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL Ripjaws 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 240PIN DIMM Memory $82.67
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=44264
These are compatible with the motherboard?


Liteon IHAS124 24X DVD Writer SATA Black OEM $25.99
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...facture=Liteon


Total $1340.75

Alright so I plan on price matching everything to try and bring it down to at least 1250 or so. Also everything I listed is compatible and worth buying?

Why not build it yourself. It saves you money and is a great learning experience. There are so many threads on here that can walk you through it not to mention most people are more then willing to help and / or answer any questions you may have.

I agree with Frankie, build it yourself - I am so glad I built my last system, I was nervous at first but I really am glad. I learned a lot about my system and it was fun, I'm looking to build a similar 2500k system now too - I can't wait.

Just order the parts and put it together. You managed to sign up and register on a forum, not to mention post a thread. Your skills are far advanced for putting a PC together. Granted it's intimidating but it's easy. JUST DO IT.

You did a good job, there is nothing there that is a bad choice. If it was a 1366 build I would tell you that the Hyper 212 is a good price buy but not not give you the temps you want at 4.0+ OC's but since Sandy is decently cooler you should be fine.

Order it and put it together!

Then post pics!
