  1. I would go with the Intel® Core™ i5-750 over the i5-655K for your purchase. Do you have the option to upgrade to a ATI 5770 instead of the GTS 250, which isn't the best of gaming GPU's.

    Also, have you looked at building one yourself versus buying on from CyberPower?
  2. What is the difference between the two i5's? And yes, I can change to the ATI. I don't know much about GPU, but I thought Nvidia was better for the price?

    I haven't really looked at building myself one. I don't know enough about the compatibility of hardware, and I don't trust myself enough to make it correctly.
  3. Here is a comparison of the two CPU's, as requested ( http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/145?vs=109 ). The Nvidia card maybe better priced a little but the 5770 is the better product for the price!! Worth the upgrade over the GTS 250... IMO

    Read through the thread listed in this sticky to get an idea on building a PC. It isn't as difficult as one thinks!!
