Rebuilding!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just ordered a GTS 450, Intel X25-V 40GB SSD and Corsair 650TX.
So the only parts to replace on my current rig left are, my mobo, my cpu and my ram.

My budget is 300$ for those 3.
I've been looking at something like Intel Core i5 760, a Gigabyte H55 mobo and 2 sticks Kingston HyperX DDR3 2x2 GB RAM.

I'd like your suggestions/opinions about my choices.
If you have something better to suggest, go on. I'm not willing to spend more than 300$.

Keep in mind that my CPU has to be an Intel 4 core one.
Planning to overclock to 3.2GHz no more, no less.

Thanks and sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.
It's fine :)

I know you said you were strict on the $300, but if you want the 760, another $50 or so would go a long way for you. That chip is ~$200 by itself which only leaves ~$90 for mobo and RAM .

It's actually 180 here. I found some Kingston HyperX DDR3 1333MHz 2x2 GB RAM and a Gigabyte GA-H55M-D2H.
Are those good enough to achieve a 24/7 3.2GHz overclock with stock cooler?
It's fine :)

3.2GHz with stock? Sure. Might be a little warm, though. It would help if you had good ambient temps.

Will I have to increase VCore or anything else?
