Thoughts on Pre-build Computer

I am thinking of building a new pc and here is my pre-build hardware: Budget $600 - $700

Would like to have everyone's thoughts on this build?

  1. Unless you'll be doing pro-level video work, not much else will benefit from the i7 CPU, so get an i5-2500K instead.
  2. I think it is a great overall build
    I would suggest looking at this case

    just as an option

    also like jtt283 said
    2600k is kind of over kill

    it would help to know how you plan to use your computer

    as far as video card goes
    what is your budget for card?
    everybody's idea of mid range is different

    I would recommend a GTX 460 1gb at around $150 as a good deal
    they are in the process of discontinuing the 460
    have dropped prices
    Great card for the money

  4. Thanks for doing this for me. I am new at this and my friend mentioned to me that I should ask all the guys from Tom's to get feedback on a pre-build.

    I appreaciate you doing this for me.

    Are these for RAID 0 or RAID 1 ? Your MB gives you intel matrix storage manager.

    Aside: If the full gtx460 is going for $150 (noted above) that is not a bad price. Just avoid the 1GB SE version (crippled vs. non SE) and the 768MB version. While both are great cards, they are not the same as the full gtx 460 and a $150 price on them wouldn't be the same great deal.
