So I'm planning on building a PC for gaming, and since I know almost nothing about computers, the only thing I have on my list to buy is the Intel i5 2500k (plan to overclock)
My budget is $600-$800
So my questions are what are the recommended motherboards, cases, graphics card, power supply and RAM for my build. Sorry I dont understand much tech terms, but anyway I plan to run CPU intensive games like Minecraft at 100+ FPS. Any help is appreciated.
The video card should work fine with the 3570k or 2500k; it's a question of which driver package will work with your favorite games. Sometimes the original driver that comes with your video card cd has fewer problems than an updated catalylist. I prefer an ssd over a large sata drive; I can't stand waiting for a conventional drive to finish loading all the windows files. I've been spoiled. My little ssd is only 32 gb; and the backup system has a 60 gb ocz.
