I was hoping to get some second oppinions on this 2500k build i've been working on. Budget is 1100$, although the monitor may push it over budget a bit. Also these are in CAD, and all products need to be from Canadian sources.

Here is what I have so far:

Motherboard:ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard 189.99
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core 229.99
RAM: G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 45.99
Video Card: SAPPHIRE 100312SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity 289.99
PSU: Coolermaster GX 750W 80+ Power Supply SLI ATX12V V2.31 24PIN Active PFC PCI-E 120MM Fan 86.99
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB SATA3 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache 3.5IN Dual Proc 62.99
Case: Thermaltake V4 Black Edition ATX Mid Tower Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 EXT 4X3.5 INT Front USB Audio No PSU 39.99

Total is 965.93.

Remember there needs to be room for a monitor. So does this look good, what should I change or add?

You should talk to these guys. They built a 5.0 GHz i5-2500K

How in anyway would that help? Just because they got a 2500k to 5.0GHz doesn't mean that they can do it with any chip. Each chip is different.

Anyway, newegg has a combo deal where you can get the 2500k and the P8P67 PRO for a good deal (I forget the exact price). Also go with the F3, faster and cheaper drive.

Well the i5-2500K system they are selling complete (tax and shipping included) here http://www.liquidnitrogenoverclocking.com for only $2000 is faster than a 5.27 GHz Intel Gulftown listed for $5500, so that is what I call a bargain.

I'll take a look at the combo deals, but by F3 do you mean this? It's actually more expensive and only 3gb/s, the Cavier black is 6gb/s.

Yes I mean that drive for the price it is worth the extra $7 for the extra 360GB's. Sure the Cavier black has a 6Gbps interface but that doesn't mean it will ever come close to using that bandwidth (in fact no HDD ever will, its a hardware limitation).

EDIT: Your link for the ram goes to a deskjet printer page. What is the cas and voltage on that kit?

I agree with that. Had been contemplating a Sata3 HDD for my new build, but no HDD will ever use all the bandwidth of Sata3 so went with the Sata2 F3 1Tb unit instead, large capacity and fast as well
