  2. I'm gonna make Sli/CrossfireX in the future when I get my new salary :p so i'm gonna buy high-end components for now.
    (ready) = for future.

    Thnx for the advice but do U have any other suggestions??

    Note : Need an advice on CPU cooler too , I'm interested in the Thermaltake frio which costs 50$.
    CPU cooler is NOT included in the 1250$ budget

    If looking for a board that produces a higher over clock then the only thing I would change on that build I posted would be the mobo (Asrock extreme4) and cpu h/s.

    ASRock P67 EXTREME4 B3 LGA1155/ Intel P67 B3/ DDR3/ Quad SLI & Quad CrossFireX/ SATA3&USB3.0/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard

    For cpu cooler...that frio...or one of my favs...the CM V6.

    And then combo that 2500K with 8 gigs (2x4gb) of the G.Skill Sniper RAM (1600hz).
