Need advise on p67 build - Page 2

post #11 of 15
That looks like a killer rig. Everything seems to be in working order, so no worries there. As someone recommended though go with the 2500k it's cheaper.

listen OP...it's a gaming rig..you don't need a 2600k...its excessive, I assure you..while it may satisfy your perverse need for power, it won't be very smart financially..I've owned/tried the UD7, maximus iv extreme, sabertooth p67, and have settled with the p8p67 deluxe...all the motherboards are the same more or less (efi/power phases/pci-e slots etc)...

If you plan on going with a multiple monitor setup I could understand your need to own a 2600k and a ud7, but put the money where you'll benefit from it the most...what games are you playing? What resolution? Don't spend more money on parts where you won't even utilize it's power..The M4E and UD7 are sexy boards, but a p8p67 can do what it can do as far as overclocking is concerned...but, if you insist on getting a ud7..get a 2500k, a gtx 560 (oc it to stock gtx 570 speeds if possible) and call it a day

You don't need to spend a lot to get your computer performing like someone that actually did spend a lot

good advice

get the 2500k and stick the extra money in for a gtx 580 you would have gained 20% more performance than a 2600k with a gtx 570

Hmmm... you've got a nice point there.

I will just be gaming with a single monitor only at 1080p res but I want the the details as high as possible. For games, it would primarily be FPS and RTS . I just had chosen 2600k in the thought that some future games may still be CPU intensive/bound (like Starcraft 2).

My goal also for the rig is for it be scalable with future game releases but yes, not to the point that I have so much extra power than what I needed for today. That is why I am very keen with the UD7 because it allows for three way SLI.

ok great...get the UD7...it's a very capable board and despite not having the fi bios (for now) it is probably my favourtiew p67 board out there...I play medal of honor, black ops, mw2 (not that graphically demanding) , deadspace 2, etc...and I max it out completely with my gtx 560ti...all eye candy on high!!! And I game at 1080p as well..actually, I game an 1920x1200 and couldnt be happier with the card..

keep in mind that if your monitor is a 60hz monitor you willl not benefit from getting anything with more power than a gtx 560 or 570 for now..I have my 2500k @ 4 ghz right now and i think its too much power for anything I need right now.. best thing to do is pick up a gtx 560 or 570 and sli a couple months later if you need to...I thought I wanted to sli..but this single gtx 560 plays everything I need with full eye candy and I couldnt be happier..
