Thanks for the quick reply! Initially I was considering P8H77-V LE, then I saw there is a P8H77-V but I don't know the difference. I don't play games.

I checked into the link you gave me http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and read all the users' comments.
I guess I'll have this one you suggested ASUS P8H77.
By the way, could you help me find the item # for a 8GB (4X2) RAM? Kingston or Corsair? Nikkor, thank you very much for your objective answers!

Hi! I'm going nuts with my building a new pc! Ok, here is what I have:
* Processor => Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost)
* Power Supply => Corsair HX650W
* Motherboard => P8H77-V OR P8H77-M/CSM
* Memory: Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 OR CML8GX3M2A1866C9R
Will you help me decide on the last two items? Compatibility is a must, of course.
I want to place an order today. Again, thank you very much for your help!! :)

OK, Nikkor, here's what I'm planning to get:

* Processor => Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost)
* Motherboard => P8H77-M/CSM
* Memory: Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9
* Power Supply => Corsair HX650W

Do you think it is a good build? Are they compatible?

AFTER YOUR REPLY, I am going to place my order with NewEgg, the best prices I found in just one place. Thanks for your help and concern about my getting good prices. You're nice!!

---------------------

The i5-2400 costs $189.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And the i5-2500 is 209.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Where did you see $104.99? at newegg. U still didnt say what GPU do u have?
And why do u want that PSU if i are budget minded : )


2500K will make u much happier.

U don't need to buy all in newegg.

Yeah, milion of them, but that is why I asked for the GPU, as u most likely going to waste some $$$, because it will be too much.

At the moment I have Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.40GHz, 3.49GB RAM.

I didn't know us.ncix .
OK, if I get this i5-2500, again I ask: will the other parts be the same as for i5-2400? And how about the PSU I chose? Do you have a better suggestion?

Hello, Nikkor! I'm back again.
I thought it over about getting an i5-2500 and decided to buy it, following your suggestion. As for a graphic card, I might as well have the video on board that comes with the processor, I am not interested in game playing.

Motherboard => ASUS P8H77-M/CSM

Memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820233186

Power Supply => Corsair HX650W

I wrote to www.US.NCIX.com but unfortunately they said that all payments must be via US issued credit card, so they won't accept my card from Brazil. Too bad!

Anyway, I have to place my order today, otherwise my friend in the USA won't get the items in time to bring them to me.

"As for a graphic card, I might as well have the video on board that comes with the processor, I am not interested in game playing. "

OK, than get this PSU, and its still way more than u need. Way more.

If u will not use any GPU, u are perfectly fine : )

instead of Corsair HX650W ? I use my computer for 8 to 10 hours/day, not for gaming though... Wouldn't it be better to have 650W? I'm so stupid in computer hardware issues... I'm relying on your help and thank you very much for this!

Also, if I would be you, I would get this mobo instead of that other one.

Better deal for your CPU, u can overclock nicely and have a great mobo.

I know where u are coming from : ))

But if u will get that other PSU, it will use only 35% of the power.

Than, that PSU has great features, but those are most important for gamer's only.

Its easy to pay for nice PSU, but in your case is just waist of money and u can use that elsewhere.

U don't need 6 cylinder 4.0 Liter engine to power up your lawn mover : )

Take a look at this chart. It shows how much power the GPU's are taking from the PSU.

And your system don't have any, just the one on CPU.

And that takes very little, much less than any of those listed in this picture.



The lowest power is drawn by HD 7750 @ 43 Watts.

That card looks like this.

It seems you're an expert on what we'be been discussing, but this picture is like a
hyeroglyph to me... can't understand it. Just in between, how about having 500W Real?

Funny what you wrote somewhere: "U don't need 6 cylinder 4.0 Liter engine to power up your lawn mover : ) " You also said "I know where u are coming from : )) " Do you? I'm from Brazil, you see our map+colors. And where are from?

That mobo was made for the CPU u getting.

Z77 is not needed at all, as it doesn't bring nothing new to the table.

It used to be $150 or so.
