First time over here, but seems like I got a lot of answer. I am building a new computer and i needed some advices about it. First time builder btw. I still have to choose between 2 motherboards (still haven't decided yet). So if anyone could help me with it that would be great. I need to know to if you would change anything in what i'm looking to buy (all of my parts), as long as it is around the same price (got a limited budget.)
Processor : Intel i5 2500k (will oc) Motherboard : P8P67 pro or Sabertooth p67
Ram : Corsair vengence 8GB (2 x 4GB)
Video : GeForce gtx 260 oc (Will eventually change newest card and i will sli)
Power Supply : Thermaltake TR2 650W
Tower : Antec three hundred black steel
Hard Drive : WesternDigital 6gb/s 1tb 750rpm
Windows 7 Home premium 67 bit.
1.) The extra PCIe x16 slot.
2.) The Sabertooth's Thermal Armor seems kind of cool, but it worries me. Seems like after a while dust might get trapped in there.
3.) The P8P67 is $50 cheaper. Probably the biggest reason.
Also the P8P67 has bluetooth if that matters to you at all.
For the power supply I recommend at least considering the Corsair Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W. It got excellent reviews and is in the same price range. Plus there is currently a $10 rebate. (Price after rebate is $84.99)
