The 2500k is sufficient for a gaming rig.
Put that saved money for a good modular psu, you're going to need it with that case.

The RealSSD is faster read but slower write. I guess once you install the OS then its ok. Plus, if its just a boot drive - you wont need more than 60GB.

the reason to go OCZ is because of the support and updates and ssds tend to fail so if you dont go ocz you wont get the support and you gonna have issue's go ocz you can see that everyone on this fourm is ocz or corsair on SSD"S

Thanks for all the responses but, I think I'm going to stick with the C300 for it's read speed though. Also I think we're going to go with a full tower case and pretty set on this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129087
Mainly going with this case to make sure there is plenty of room to fit a 570 (and in the future maybe 2) and the fact that it has filters.Also it isn't too expensive.

Going stock cooling for now. The guy isn't real big on OC anything so... hence why I bought a pre-OC GTX 570. Not sure if I should use stock cooling or not because I don't know which heatsinks fit on 1155. The only one I found decent is this Tuniq one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835154014

I didn't research any compatibility stuff yet as far as if a 1366 or 1156 socket heatsink fits.

Not overclocking?????
WE DON'T TAKE KINDLY TO YOUR KIND HERE!


I'm just kidding! in all honesty,
the stock cooler on the 2600K is pretty decent...
but something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-065-_-Product

would be great if you want a simple drop in replacement. that will help your temps stay low.

I like the i5 2500k I have. I know your friend isnt a fan of OCing... but its nice on the SB processors because its not a constant OC... its only under load.... at idle the processor only spits out a GHz speed.

Since games do not take advantage of hyperthreading... the i7 is kind of a waste. Also the extra 100 MHz is totally not worth the price jump for a gaming rig.
