Hello everyone,

I haven't built systems in a very long time and I would like some advice towards my new system build. Can anyone verify if these type of components combination works? Thanks (about to order from amazon/newegg in about 2days)

In order, processor, cpu fan, videocard, motherboard, ram/memory, powersupply. (will be using an existing atx case, hdd, dvd/cdrom drive, intergrated networkcard, intergrated soundcard)

$224.20 - Intel Core i5 Processor i5-2500K 3.3GHz 6MB LGA1155 CPU BOX80623I52500K
$29.99 - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler, RR-B10-212P-G1
$249.99 - MSI GeForce GTX560 1 GB DDR5 2DVI/Mini HDMI PCI-Express Video Card N560GTX TI TWIN FROZR II OC
$168.99 - ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard [OPEN BOX]
$94.99 - Corsair Vengeance Blu 8 GB PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit
$94.99 - Corsair Enthusiast Series 650-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply

Thank you very much for your responses and sorry if I sound noobish :) 

EDIT: By the way I wanted to run the processor at about oc 4.3ghz ish... and oc memory at 2133mhz

System looks great. Looks exactly like mine except for mobo and psu. I would recommend at least 750W if you plan on adding another 560ti. 4.3ghz oc should be a sinch and I don't know about oc the memory to 2133. There isn't a whole lot of leway on voltage (mine only goes up to 1.6V unless you tweak one of the cpu voltages can't remember which off the top of my head) so if you can get it stable great.

Hah, wow crazy similar build. Do you think it can at least go 1866 oc for the memory? I do plan on adding another 560ti but in like a year (not too crazy about rediculous gaming, just bf2 bf3 crysis 2 etc etc). So if I get this 650watt and I add the 560ti, will it not work? or what will happen?

Thanks for the quick response! :)

You need enough amps/wattage to power the 560s. If you need the power and it's not there the computer crashes.

All memory is different. They did have some 1866 ram on sale for $90 bucks a few weeks ago which would have made it easy for you :p It's $100 now. For 5 dollars you can just buy the RAM you want instead of hoping it's stable.

edit: $100 for 2133Mhz although the timings start getting worse
