And if it is for gaming, the 2500K is a better choice for a CPU. The 2700K is more for video editing, transcoding, and computing than games. It is still a fine chip, but less bang for the buck. killerfreak0 December 3, 2011 3:47:26 PM It's for playing games like skyrim and battlefield 3 Max settings with 50 fps killerfreak0 December 3, 2011 3:49:06 PM I'd rather have a "Jack of all trades" Then a one hit wonder Raiddinn a b V Motherboard December 3, 2011 4:15:40 PM The i5 2500k doesn't suck at everything except gaming, if that is what you mean. It is more like the 2500k is a couple % better for gaming and a couple % worse for everything else, and the 2700 is a couple % better for everything else and a couple % worse for gaming. No motherboard you would ever want for this would be anywhere close to $700.

The 2500K is a very good all-around chip, but not as good as the 2700K for other things. If you want to get a mobo that you can use multiple GPUS in sli (and sort of future proof your rig) this is a great buy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... & this is a power mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
