I decided to build a new gaming computer, although I never have.. I've been doing a lot of readings and researches about the ways of building a computer, but i just can't be too sure if it will be a working computer or not.
Would be great if you can tell me if it'll work, and any feedbacks/comments would help Im especially worried if the motherboard will be compatible with the processor. Thanks
Processor: Intel i5-2500k 3.3GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D-E LX LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s
Memory: 8GB DDDR3
HDD: WesternDigital CaviaBlack 7200rpm 1TB 64MB
GPU: ASUS nVidia GeForce GTX 460
Case: Nine Hundred Two
the i5-2500k is fairly new, and has LGA 1155 while the motherboard has 1156,
so im unsure if this would work
LGA1155 CPU in a LGA1156 motheboard will not work. Also, before buying Sandy Bridge (LGA1155) be sure to understand and accept the risk of the chipset failure that has recently been in the news. It is best to stay away until the new chipset ships with new motherboards in March / April.
Hmm, i see.
I was at first putting i5-760 and i5-2500k on a scale and read that the 2500k would perform better, so i half-blindly chose the 2500k. Didn't know that it had chipset failure issues as well
I'm thinking to finish building one by february
hmmm, it does look like it's definitely worth a wait of couple of months.
tough choice because looks like the motherboards are going to be somewhat more expensive at the same time... i have to concider it
