i5-2500k is a beast with good overclocking potential while the i5-2400 isn't. If you plan to overclock, then the i5-2500k along with a P67/Z68 is the way to go. If you're not ever going to overclocking, then you can save money by going with the i5-2400 along with a H61/H67 motherboard. You didn't list a hard drive, and people here go with the Samsung Spinpoint F3. This seems to be it in msy: http://msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=2519. Both power supply are from Corsair which is good, but the HX-650 should be better. Here's a review of the GS600: http://www.overclock.net/power-supplies/736001-corsair-...
Thanks for a reply!
Ahh, so i'll go with the 2500k then in that case. I plan on just using my 2 hard drives i have atm which are http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7993, i was thinking of getting a SSD drive but they're quite expensive in australia for a large capacity, and with the PSU, can either of them handle the parts i have mentioned? or do i need more watts?
Just about a few hours from going to get my parts and I've edit some of my parts but i'm stuck between the GTX570 or Radeon6970, i do plan on using SLI/crossfire in the next month, or should I get a GTX580? (but will have to wait more then a few months to do SLI) and is my PSU enough to run SLI/Crossfire with any of those cards?
