Hii guys

I bought a sabertooth p67 motherboard for an amazing 47 $,

But i dont know what other parts i should buy, and becouse i am 15 years old i dont have much to pay do u have any sugestions, the things i plan to buy are

2x 8 gb 1866 g skill (separate 8 gb 1866) for total 157 $
3770k on ebay for around 280 $
1000 watt coolermaster psu 180 $

What can I improve on these or are cheaper/better options?also is the 2600k or 2700k a better option than the sandybridge?

I already have 3 hdd's (2 250 gb and 1 500 gb) that will be a upgrade worth over time , maybe wd black, but not right now becouse that would be too much in price right now

I also have an antech gx700 case now should i change?

and a 650 watt psu i will probably sell to a friend.

And i have an broken 590 gtx card (condensators broken) is it repairable? And should i sell it when it is repaired or use it myself?or buy a new one?

I am planning to use a pentium 4 cpu untill i got my money for the expensive cpu.

what is your oppinion about this all?

You can only use 2nd Gen CPUs with that sabertooth p67. aka Sandy Bridge.
I can tell that you have a little understanding of what you are doing.

Please state your Budget and what you already have that you do not need Like OS, Mobo, monitor, etc

Best solution

That motherboard is OLD. You only need 8gb RAM for games. 16gb will improve nothing as games use 4gb or less.

Get an i5 not an i7. For gaming there is no difference between the two. The i7 would be a waste.

1000w is STUPID overkill. And it is likely a low quality unit. Ditch it and get a 650w unit.

You cannot use a P4 on that motherboard. It is not possible.

True, you probably want to check bios first, make sure it's up to date.

oke thx (: but what should I do with the broken gtx 590, should i repair it? (Around 100$) or trow it away and buy a new videocard (which one?) Or should I repair it and sell it?

If you can't fix it yourself, sell it. You can get 7850 for $110 right now so fixing it for $100 isn't worth it.
