The intel Move

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So as Im picky in performance and wanting to Overclock and also have a nice looking PC as well I decided to hop on over to the Intel side instead of upgrading an outdated AMD PC.

Over the next few months I will be buying the parts for this PC

The Build Parts:
Case:COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1
PSU:
CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-850HX
Note: (Might sleeve it after I gut my current and try it before the corsair)
HDDs:2xWestern Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS in Raid / OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G (For OS)
Mobo:ASUS P8P67 WS REVOLUTION
CPU:i5 2500k
Memory:G.SKILL Ripjaws X + Turbulence II Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Cooling:XSPC Rasa 750 RS360
Video: Depends whats out at the end lol

Suggestions are welcome and will take into high consideration (Just dont suggest crazy parts that I dont need lol)

First things im getting though are the CPU and mobo so I can run it and make sure it runs fine and then sell my current mobo and cpu. My bother might be the one who buys them off me lol, he's been itching to get new PC parts to break him away from his dual cores

Unless you are planning on going SLI/Crossfire I recommend you get a cheaoer HX650w, great for a single card setup and its even capable of running 2 GTX 570's or 2 HD 6950's, although its obviously not recommended.

Crossfire or SLI is planned for this setup. Looking at the 560ti videocards with much interest. It also will allow some headroom for future upgrades.

Well either you can buy the RX240 now or just get the RS240 and sell it when the time comes to where you would need a RX240. Up to you....
