Hello all, I'm looking to upgrade my pc with $1200(Canadian) and i need your help. This time though i want to do it smart first i would like my CPU to be intel i5 2500k(as i heard the 2600k is only slightly better for 100 bucks more) and i want to overclock it to atleast 4.5ghz i also would like to have sly support so i don't have to upgrade for whole lot of money later on. So my question to you is how is my gaming rig so far and would the mobo that i have listed be very good for Overclocking and sly support? and please help me with the things i left out
things i don't need: Keyboard, Mouse, OS
CPU: Intel i5 2500k(Plan to Overclock this to atleast 4.5ghz)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 570(would going 580 be worth it? or should i stick to 570 and get another 570 one day(way later on probably 1 year later), i want this rig to last atleast 4-5 years. Basically would the 580 be really that much better then a 570. And would getting a SLY GPU be a smart thing to do for a future upgrading path. Or should i stick to a single 580(no sly 580 as that would be 2 much money)
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 PRO(Is this a good mobo for overclocking and sly? what other mobo for this CPU that is cheaper but has SLY support as well as good overclocking abillities are out there? would this be the best board for me?)
Cooler : Coolmaster Hyper 212+ (heard good things about it)
PSU: (No idea what this should be as it depends on the GPU. it depends on my GPU
Solid State Drive(no idea this even is )
Case I know very little about good ones, a red one would be cool but it doesn't have to be)
RAM: I don't know at all
Harddrive: I don't know
please help me with as I'm pretty clueless unless they are the main things on the board and even then im not to sure. Sorry for any grammar mistakes or spelling.
Thanks for the suggestion this is my first time building a computer 100% on my own(ooohh man big man lol) i researched that going sly 560 ti's would be good now but my upgrade path would be nothing.
So i plan to go with the best single card i can offord which might be the 580 at this point of time and ya hopefully sly it like 6 months later or something.
I have a new question for everyone am i done in making this computer? these are the pards that i came up with. Also i have a question do i have to buy a new hardrive with this new computer? and soundcard? or can i use the old ones(sorry if thats a noob question) these are the parts i have decided to get. Also i have another important question i have decided to go for a psu corsair tx 950w will this be enough for a i5 2500k oc'ed to 4.5ghz along with gtx 580's in sly?
Case: Coolermaster Haf 922 Mid Tower ATX Case Black 5X5.25 5X3.5INT Front Audio USB eSATA No PSU
what else do i need? i have no need for a moniter, OS, Keyboard, or a mouse, i can use my old speakers for sound right? and what do u think of this? i researched that the 580 is about 15% better then the 570 and since my budget for this pc is 1200 why not. I calculated this to be about $1191 canadian(with 1 gtx 580, not sly yet) would that case work with my 950 watt PSU? there would be no issue with this gaming rig? do u think its a decent one?
