  1. If it's for gaming and photoshop, you should consider buying a new monitor as well! Also you have chosen incompatible motherboard, wrong memory and big psu which you won't need!
  2. ?????Is the Sabertooth...nt worth it.................
  3. big psu fr the reason tht I would be either sli or crossfire feature in future...............
  4. It's a socket 1366 motherboard and you processor works only with socket 1155...
  5. Memory.....I left corsair bcoz........G.Skill....is famous..specially..the ripjaws : ) ...........The vengeance...its nt available here....ny good ones.......
  6. with a good 750W psu you will be ok! I'll post my suggested build in a while!

  11. what is your budget in Rs then, since that site lists prices in Rs
  12. 75000
  13. superb cmarid...man ur awesome....u pulled out a perfect....rig...but i would ...go with 6 ram slots.....bcoz....i would update 4gb i evry 2 monts......i t is expandable to 32gb but 8gb/slot.....plz suggest ram.....good one i will manage here......isnt i5 2500k good ........... :??:?
  14. that website has a VERY limited selection of RAM.. I would suggest getting 2 4gb ram sticks

    fits the bill I guess, but most websites I'm familiar with offer 8gb kits of 2 sticks that have been tested together
  15. as far as 6 ram slots goes, the i5 2500k motherboards are dual channel, not triple channel, so you will be limited to 4 slots
  16. for what you are doing i7 2600k. asrock p67 extreme4. motherboard 16gb ram. haf 922 case. tx750 psu. intel 510 120gb ssd. samung spinpoint f3 1tb. this monitor- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236117&cm_re=asus_23-_-24-236-117-_-Product
