$2000 build ... this oughta be interesting - Page 2

post #11 of 18
the 2MB extra L3 cache may benefit him; but as far as value that motherboard is not a great value imo. I'd choose the Asus WS revolution, Deluxe, or Pro over the Maximus; the ASRock Extreme4/6 or Fatal1ty would be good choices as well
Edit: or the Sapphire Pure Black Mobohttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813154018

I would say go for either 2 or 3 560Ti, or a 580, or a 6950 2GB reference and unlock it

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K $220
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 PRO $175
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1866 MHz 2x4GB $125
GPU: EVGA GTX 580 $500
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+ $30
SSD: Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB $247
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB $100
PSU: Corsair AX750 $190
ODD: LITE-ON CD/DVD Burner $22
WIRELESS: TP-LINK USB Wireless Adapter $20
CASE: Corsair 600T $160

Total comes to $1789. The GTX 580 will be much better for gaming than the 560ti. Also, the Hyper 212+ is a cheap but decent cooler that will let you overclock the 2500k to 4.5GHz comfortably.

If you want to keep the 4-way SLI ability open, I'd try this.

It's one step down from the Maximus IV, and just as reliable.
The only real big difference is the SUPER VRM components, the Maximum IV gives you super-overclock potential... but since you are going with the i5 instead of the i7, the WS will be more than enough.

The WS revolution is also $100 cheaper. Like someone else mentioned, the P8P67 PRO is also nice, I'm about to buy one in 6 hours actually. If you plan to use 4 graphics cards, get the Maximus IV or the WS Revolution. If you are going to stick with the one card, or maybe upgrade to two cards later are not going to go 3 or four, then stick with the P8P67 PRO

I'd go SLI on the 560's rather than getting a single 580. SLI 560's outperform a single 580 in every way.

I would get this list with a OCZ Vertex 3. Its twice as fast as the other SSD.

I'm in Canada! Parts themselves should be around $1770 max before taxes. BTW, I mean't to say 2x 560 Ti ... and possible 2 more in future!
