msi twin frozr II gtx 560 ti
April 6, 2011 2:22:54 AM

^for MMOs Id definetly agree.
The 2500k is worth the extra 20$ IMHO. You will be able to overclock if you ever need it
To make sure its a solid build, go with an aftermarket CPU heatsink

This hard drive is better for the same price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The PSU you chose has some DOA reviews so i might recommend a trusted brand, such as this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Yeah i was think about it, just didn't know if its the best option, i know it runs really cool, which is why i liked it. That also why i got the 200mm fan, so that i can add it to the top so i get better cooling on MOBO/CPU. Which CPU do you recommend if i do OC its only going to try to get to 3.5ghz. any suggestions

Thanks in advance

As for the hard drive, what makes it better?
b/c the one i picked its 32mb so maybe i just don't understand why the one you offer is better.
April 6, 2011 2:48:03 AM

I don't agree that the spinpoint is better than the caviar black. I'd say they are pretty even and it just comes down to personal preference. Any GTX 560Ti will be the best performance value followed closely by the slightly more expensive 6950. Antec makes good psu's but I personally prefer corsair. I also think you should spend the extra $30 for the cm690II case. Mine has been a pleasure to work in and it comes with 3 fans and blue leds....

Thank you for your input, as for the Graphics i'm kinda leading towards the one i post. as for the case 3 reasons i picked it

- It finds in the space i want to find it in (as of right now i'm in a apartment, and the floor in the room i will be placing it has carpet (that is pretty thing, so i need to set it up on this nightstand that like 22" L 20'' W, so i had to pick this desktop.)
- I need a small system, because i've owned huge desktop (antec 900) and found that yes they are great at airflow, but it jsut so big its a monster.)
- I like the designed( the removalable spaces makes it really appealing

What do you think 2500k or 2500 for the CPU i know that 2500k is better (both in stock cooling and OC) but i'm only going to boost it up near the end before i upgrade for better (2years from now hopefully)
Will 650W be enough power, i wont being going sli, i just need a solid power supply (Post which one you will recommend, just found out the one i was going to order has had alot of DOA this month.)
April 6, 2011 3:23:11 AM

Also as for the hard drive, i plan on getting a SSD for my birthday. Heard SSD= faster graphics load rate on MMOS so thats def going to be on my upgrade.
April 6, 2011 3:53:23 AM

i actually have the 912 and i really like it. The 2500 and 2500k are exactly the same thing, except that the multiplier on the k is unlocked, allowing you to overclock more than turbo boost does automatically. You will easily be able to overclock to at least 4ghz with an air cooler. I would say it is worth it for 20$ if it fits in your budget. You can only guess if you will ever want to overclock or not

650w is good. It would still be enough if you were going to do sli. This was the one i recomended. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The same thing, but modular http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
April 6, 2011 4:10:40 AM

I wish, i live in west Texas, so no microcenter but thx for your input. i plan on 2500k, the 20$ is worth it.

Can i add the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible later, cause as of right now i wont be overclocking till later.
April 6, 2011 5:03:30 AM

yea, the price should be lower anyway. you wont need the thermal paste either if you dont get the fan. the stock fan will have thermal paste pre applied. The stock fan will not be all that quiet either

Hey man I don't really have any advice for your build, but I did see that you had a Win7 64-bit OEM listed and I just thought I'd share this deal from neweggs April fools deals were you can save $10 on it.

Now I don't know if you have to be subscribed to their newsletter for the code to work, but if you do then I guess you could just sign-up anyways and it'll probably work. The code is EMCKFKJ48 it's valid through tomorrow the 7th.

Here's the link to the newslettter (don't know if it'll show up properly) incase you're interested in looking at the other deals they have.

Anyways I know it's not a lot you're saving, but every bit counts right ;)  Anyways good luck to you.

On a scale of 1-10 I'd give it a 6.
