I've been searching, and decided to go with an i5-2500k build for my first build. This is the parts list:
Core i5-2500k 3.3 GHz
ASUS P8H67-M PRO
G.Skill Ripjaws X 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333
CM Hyper 212+
WD Caviar Black 1 TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache 6.0 GB/s
ASUS 24x DVD Burner
Antec 902 V3
Need help on graphics (Choose between Sapphire, XFX, or Asus on a Radeon HD 6850)
Need help on PSU
Any suggestions would be useful, as this is my first build.
Looking around 180 for the GPU, the PSU probably not upwards of 90, but could go. Again there were 3 models of the 6850 I was looking at, one from Asus, one from XFX, and one from Sapphire. I just wanted to know what the best company was.
I had thought we had you on a P67 board in your other thread. Pre-Sandy Bridge Build I guess that P67 board went out of stock.
If you want to cut some costs you could go with a i5-2400 & ASUS P8H67-M PRO H67 when it become available. It won't overclock like a 2500K & P67 will but you could still the nudge the i5 2400 from 3.1Ghz up around ~3.8Ghz.
