he doesn't want to oc

Still better bang for the buck.. in a year or two when it starts to show its age a better heatsink could be added and a light OC will give it a boost

I agree, those extra 40$ on cpu/mb together are worth it because OC'ing is so easy and the performance boost is big if done properly. But yeah, if he goes out of his way to mention that he doesn't want overlocking then I think you need to respect that.

still no ram in the post, should 4gb ddr3 be enough?, damn these pc parts costs alot in the eu, and i have a budget of 700€~986$

I came up with this:

Core i5-2500K/3.3GHz 6MB LGA1155 » Tietokonekauppa.fi 192€
EVGA GeForce GTX 570, 1280MB GDDR5, 320-bit, 2 x DVI-I/MiniHDMI » jimm's pc store.fi 283€
GIGABYTE GA-H67M-D2-B3 » multitronic.fi 94€
CORSAIR MODULAR POWER SUPPLY 750W » Tietokonekauppa.fi 167€
Cooler Master Elite 334 Black » multitronic.fi 53€
Samsung 1TB SpinPoint F3 3.5", SATAII, 32MB, 7200RPM » Jimm's PC Store 53€
A-Data 4GB, DDR3 1333MHz, CL9 Bulk » jimms pc store 39€

881€~1243.89$, wich is still too much for my budget...

wonder if i can decrease the components for the budget but i dont know how...

you can literally overclock by pushing a button on your motherboard if you get a MSI motherboard with oc genie these days

The gpu is most important, id recommend op drops down to a 2500, and gets a non GX750W psu...

To the OP: PSU is important. It will fry your whole system if you get a crappy one.
Heres a review:

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=...

By the only trusted guys in PSU reviewing (aside from 2 other sites..)

Summary

Coolermaster has a decent 600 watt unit here. The unit does pretty well for stability and efficiency, doesn't get very loud, and... what? It's a 750 watt unit?
Facepalm.

Past Coolermaster units have done pretty well here in the lab, and I'm puzzled that this one has done so poorly. I hope that next time, if there is a next time, we'll have something worth getting excited about.



The review tells us the PSU is actually a 600W unit with a 750W label.. thats what cheap PSU's give.. less than they say!

Buy any of these power supplies (to power a GTX 570, and a single one).

get a... 500W-650W psu from... Antec (EXCEPT NOT BASIQ series from antec), Corsair (anything except for CX/VX), XFX (any), seasonic (This ones expensive and not better).


750W of any psu from antec/corsair/seasonic/xfx if you wanna sli (recommend 850w tbh)..

560ti price/performance is a better buy than a 570
