JTM's i5 Build Preview

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone could go over my build and recommend any changes. The build is primarily going to be used for gaming and virtualization.

I already have a case(Antec 1200), PSU(750w PC Power Cooling), Zalman CPU Cooler, and HDD.

Mobo:

GPU:

CPU:

RAM:

Thanks for looking! My target budget for the listed components is 700-ish. The build as it stands is around 700.

well, your cpu is best choice for gaming and if you live near a microcenter you could save some money purchasing it there, guess if they have the MB you could save even more.

I dont see a cpu cooler listed, do you plan to OC?
