  1. I'm not very good at deciding things like this. The max price i go for it is 700 dollars
  2. Oh yeah I also have water cooling so I want to overclock to at least 4.5 GHz
  3. Do you intent to sli your video?

    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.
  4. It's for playing games like skyrim and battlefield 3 Max settings with 50 fps
  5. I'd rather have a "Jack of all trades" Then a one hit wonder
  6. 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.

    Just get something like this and you should be fine

    - Edit - What you really should be asking is what PSU you should use to power all this.
  7. As I said the 2700K is a lovely chip, just a bit extra expense for gaming. 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=N82E16813157265 & this is a power mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157269
