Intel 2500K Budget Gaming Build - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
I'll get a Radeon HD6870 then.

They only sell the MSI P67A-C43 (B3) and the MSI P67A-GD53-H (B3) here. I' not exactly sure if the GD53-H is the same board as on here - not sure if the missing H in the name will make a difference.

The only differences that I see between the two boards (1, 2) are the 1394 ports (Rear), which is Firewire (Which I don't need, since I don't have any devices that can connect this way.)

Would the MSI P67A-GD53-H (B3) be good then?

For the PSU, I only plan on adding in hard drives later on. Would I need 800W because of that?

If the GD53-H is the same as a GD53 then go for it. It's got pretty much the same features as the GD55.

A good 600W will power that rig + HDD's easily.

I'd say get DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 1.5V if you can. Probably G.Skill Ripjaw X's. They're cheap and good.

Anything more won't be noticed, anything less is thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

You will need those heatsinks on the North Bridge if you plan to overclock at all 24/7. Get the GD53 if that is the only other board available.

What is your location?

Difference in RAM speeds actually don't matter too much on the 1155 socket since the multiplier is unlocked. DDR3 1333 1.5v RAM is fine unless DDR3 1600 1.5v RAM can be purchased for about the same price.

Alright. I've chosen the Corsair Gaming CMPSU-600G (GS600). Would this be fine for my build?

Would the G Skill 4GB (2x2) F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL be fine?

Doesn't the heatsink come with the Intel CPU? I don't plan to overclock though, so should that be fine?

F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL is good.

What about the PSU?

Corsair Gaming CMPSU-600G (GS600)
post #19 of 25
If you can't spring for the CMPSU-650TXV2 then the CMPSU-600G should suffice.

Besides the increase in amount of Watts that the PSU can power, what else is there that differentiates the 650TXV2 from the 600G (GS600)?
