$1000 Intel Build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Need a little help here I haven't been up to date on my hardware in a while so I don't know what the best bang for my buck is.

I only need a motherboard, memory, cpu (intel) and a graphics card.

Are you going to use the computer for gaming? If so, I'd recommend:

Intel Core i7 2500K $220
Corsair H70 $105 plus a $10 MIR
Asus P8P67 (Rev 3.0) $165
Galaxy GTX 570 $330 plus a $40 MIR
G.SKILL Ripjaws X 2x4GB PC3-12800 CL8 $130 plus a $30 MIR

Total cost is $950 ($870 after MIRs)

With a $1000 budget for just CPU, motherboard, RAM, and GPU, you can definitely get a nice Sandy Bridge setup. But, the stock of motherboards is limited right now. There were indications that they would be available in quantity at the end of this week, but don't be surprised if you have a little trouble finding a motherboard immediately.
