so i was thinking something along the lines of this
cpu; i5 2400 @ 3.1ghz
motherboard; gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3R
ram; gskill 4gb ddr3 ripjaws @ 1600mhz
hardrive; samsung spinpoint F3 1TB @7200
GPU; evga gtx460 1GB
PSU; corsair HX-650W
totally open to improvements, also was thinking of getting it made for me and get the warranty provided with a proffesional build as i havent really done much in the way of building (apart from replacing ram) and am wondering how difficult doing a build really is.
More aboutsuggestions build
I'd choose the Asrock or Asus mb over the Gigabyte, recent reviews see it as a bit overpriced compared to the afformentioned competitors. (Normally Gskill ram is a tad overpriced as well...)
Also, the GTX560 is due out very soon....
also, if going for the P67 series of MB, the 2500k costs more, but, is faster, and....UNLOCKED (well, up to 57x multiplier).
yeah id probably prefer an asus board. all im wondering if the gtx560 will be a bit of overkill for what i need and if i can really justify paying the extra money
