how am i doing with this build?

post #1 of 5

i am working with around a $750 budget

i5 2400 $165
asrock p67 pro3 $105
both bought from here

msi twin frozer 560ti

i already have 2 wd caviar blue 320's from an older build that i will raid, but eventually i will get an ssd

i realize the 2400 is locked, but the key was the board. getting a p67, despite having the sata 3.0 flaw,for $100 and being able to upgrade the processor in the future whether to an i7 or 2500k i thought was a good risk. i could be wrong, but again i am on a budget. yes i could have went for the 1st gen i5's and 1156 chipset, but they are not upgradeable. so what do most think of this build. i will be doing moderate gaming and other daily operations. i appreciate any feedback

I really think you should have gone with an unlocked processor right from the bat, that is what makes sandy bridge so appealing imo ,but other than that everything is looking good and I really recommend this RAM over the one you picked as I have had great experience with them and pretty nice overclocks (6-9-6-24-1T @ 1600MHz 1.65V).

i agree with you about the cpu. my heart was set on the 2500k, but it was a choice i had to make being it wasn't part of the bundle, only the 2400 was. you win some, you lose some i guess. thanks for the suggestion on the RAM

that is my thinking exactly. it's not that important for what i use the computer for to get to 5ghz. i am sure i will want to at a latter time, but not in the immediate future. if and when i decide to, the board allows me to upgrade to a better cpu, so long the board doesn't die by then or even worst i mess it up installing the thing. lol.
