  • Budget Range: 600-650$
  • System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming.
  • Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor, operating system.
  • Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Not sure.
  • Country of Origin: Lithuania, but I'll have all parts delivered to UK.
  • Parts Preferences: I would like an nvidia video card and a intel processor.
  • Overclocking: No.
  • SLI or Crossfire: No sure.
  • Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024 (will upgrade to 1920x1080 in the future).
  • Additional Comments: I would like a quiet PC.

    I'll suggest my personal build: i5-2400, H61 board, 4 GB of RAM, 1TB HDD, HD 6850, High quality 400-500W PSU (antec, Corsair, xigmatek, SeaSonic), and a cheap case with at least a couple 120mm fans.

    $600-650 total cost.

    I'll look up to it. But for now, I'll head to sleep.

    Looks prtty solid to me. If you have the K, do you plan to overclock? If not, you can save about $20 with the regular 2500.

    I'm not sure if I'm going to. What are the differences between them?

    the 2500K has an unlocked multiplier (meaning it can be heavily overclocked) and an HD3000 on-die GPU.

    the 2500 multiplier is locked and it has an HD2000 on-die GPU.

    Looks pretty solid. And yes if you don't plan to overclock, get the non K processor and a H67 board.

    Dropping down to a 2400 might even allow you to fit a GTX560Ti in your budget. Check the $800 build on my sig.
