help in buliding my first pc

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
HI!

What I wanted to ask is: will these parts all fit together, like the motherboard will fit in the case etc. and if it is a good build for its price? Also whether the PSU will be able to power all of this, keeping in mind that I will want to overclock the i5 2500k a bit.

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K
Mobo: Asus P8P67 PRO
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 460 OC 1GB GDDR5
RAM: Kingston 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz HyperX
Case: Casecom 6788
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
TOTAL: £553.51

There are some things that I already have that I can carry on from the PC that I have now and I don't intend on replacing these atm:
HDD: Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1T
PSU: CiT Extra Value Gold 600W
and some dvd drive

(All links lead to www.ebuyer.com for convenience, I found better deals for some of these on different sites.)

http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2lm1hdd&s=7
This is a picture of the side of my PSU showing all of those things that I have no idea about
I know that the gtx460 needs two 6pin connectors, but my psu already has one and has a molex connector which I won't use, so I could add an adapter for a few pounds.

This is meant to be a build that will allow me to play games for a bit at good quality (note: not the best, good is enough) and is meant to be kind of a cheap one and for this reason I am not looking for people to say "oh get a different <insert part> cus its bad" and I would rather not swap out things out unless they will not work together or there will be some other issues. However suggestions with proper reasoning behind them are always welcome
My budget is around £550 for everything.

Also I read somewhere that it is actually better to have 2x2gb or 2x4gb of ram to make it dual channel. Is this true?
What I often do is that I have a game running and I tab out to browse the interwebs, have skype running, maybe some music and things like that.

I probably forgot something that I wanted to ask so if I remember anything, I'm going to add it later on.

Thanks
firstborn

if im not mistaken sandy bridge is dual channel not triple channel, so you can save yourself some money on the RAM straight away. i would DEFINATELY get a new psu. that thing is a pile of crap. it probably doesnt run at that wattage. unless you fancy risking the rest of your system.....

Just a quick scan - triple channel memory won't work with your computer, go with dual channel (2 x 2GB) or (4 x 2GB)

Everyone else is correct. You need dual channel memory.

Everything else looks pretty good, besides the PSU. To be honest, I've never even heard of CiT, so I can't really comment that much on them, but I would recommend a 650 if you ever want to OC.

Okay, so just the psu and ram.
I would probably go for 2x2gb, because I don't know if I will use all 4gb while gaming with browsing the net a bit.
For the psu, http://www.ebuyer.com/product/200491, something like this?
I just hope that the one that I have would run it for a few weeks, because now I REALLY do not have any more money to spend, especially on a more expensive gpu as someone suggested.

Thanks for all of the replies though

EDIT: Also could you suggest me some good RAM? 2x2gb for around £40-£50

And don't bother getting a different GPU, the 460 is fine. Now if you can find a used 6950 for under 200, then I would recommend that.
