The 2500k gives 98% of the 2600's gaming performance at $100 less cost; that last 100 MHz or so (along with Hyperthreading) just isnt worth a 40%+ cpu price hike, IMO.

The 6950 is a VERY solid performing card in it's price range....

The XFX Core Edition is $10 cheaper and is a better PSU.....

XFX Core 9.5 Perf. Rating http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=...

GFX - Assuming you plan on SLI / CF as a future upgrade. Guru3D uses the following games in their test suite, COD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Total fps (summing fps in each game @ 1920 x 1200) for the various options in parenthesis (single card / SL or CF) are tabulated below along with their cost in dollars per frame single card - CF or SLI:

$155.00 460-768 MB (314/592) $0.49 - $0.52
$155.00 6850 (371/634) $0.42 - $0.49
$190.00 6870 (434/701) $0.44 - $0.54
$250.00 6950 (479/751) $0.52 - $0.67
$285.00 6950 Frozr OC (484/759) $0.59 - $0.75
$240.00 560 Ti (455/792) $0.53 - $0.61
$335.00 6970 (526/825) $0.64 - $0.81
$225.00 560 Ti - 900 Mhz (495/862) $0.45 - $0.52
$335.00 570 (524/873) $0.64 - $0.77
$500.00 580 (616/953) $0.81 - $1.05
$725.00 6990 (762/903) $0.95 - $1.61
$700.00 590 (881/982) $0.79 - $1.43

AT 1920 x 1200, I'd take the 560 Ti (900Mhz) ... leads the 6950 as single card but really pulls away in SLI vs. CF. At 2560 x1600, I'd take the 2GB 6950. The 900Mhz Ti's better coolers allow them to be OC'd to 1000MHz no problem, mine went even w/o voltage adjustments.

RAM - drop the tall heat sinks which will hit many 3rd party CPU coolers.

$120 for CAS 9 is a bit extreme ... these are $84 and won't hit anything.

These CAS 7's are $145 .... I put them in all SLI builds
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case - The HAF-X is a significant improvement on the 932.

CPU - If just for gaming, the 2500 will be fine; it also runs cooler w/ no HT so may be able to be OC'd higher. Of course can turn off HT.

1. PSU is bit overkill for the setup. aomething round 650W should be enough.

2.the HT on 2600k will hardly be used in games. better to get the 2500k. use the money saved to get a better GPU.


wait so thats mean that it will not work?
and what do you mean by "overkill"??? it will hurt my system???

so if i remove the heatsing of the CPU and stay with the normal, my ram will fit???
