Proccessor-i5 2500k
Ram- Corsair Vengence 8GB/16GB
HDD- 1TB/2TB HDD from Seagate(Barracuda)
GPU- MSI GTX570 OC Twin Frozer III

CPU cooler- CM V6GT / Thermaltake Frio / CM 212 plus

These are the things that I am thinking of.........any of your addition or subtraction or replacement will be appreciated.......
I have this query that....does SSD actually decrease the boot up time...if yes then i would like to consider a 40gigs model as a boot drive only


Thank you in advance n please suggest n help

1) SSD will boot windows much faster than HDD
2) If you dont want to SLI or Crossfire, you wont need more than 500w PSU with a single GTX570
3) HDDs - Samsungs 1TB SpinPoint F3 is recommended over SeaGate's Barracuda (although personally i own a SeaGate Barracuda and have no issues with it at all).
4) What motherboard do you plan on buying? (your link doesn't work)

ASUS is a good manufacturer. However, z68 boards offer more features than a p67 and at a very comparable price. So id take a look at an ASUS z68 (unless P67 IS a fair bit cheaper in which case go for the P67).

Measured power consumption with a GTX 570

System in IDLE = 181W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 369W
Difference (GPU load) = 188W
Add average IDLE wattage ~ 25W
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 213 Watts

The most power drawn from the system was 369w. Although you want to use as little stress as possible on the PSU (60% i believe is optimal) 500w would still be enough. You could always bump up to a 550w/600w if you wanted to for peace of mind at a small price increase.

Processor: Personally id stick with the i5-2500k over an AMD. In terms of gaming performance, im not sure which would give more between:
Phenom2 x4 + GTX 580
or
i5-2500k and GTX 570

Maybe someone else can advise you there :)

Well first of all Thank u for ur reply.... :bounce: 

well d price of Z68 is about 90-100 US Dollars i.e Rs 4-5000 INR more therefore i considered P67.......act i was on H67 first......Btw can u pls tell me what are the the advantages of Z68 over P67 over H67??

Nd about the PSU Hw will be Corsair GS700 I want to keep some good Headroom for I will be using the PSU for the next 5yrs b4 any change.......
And lastly

Do u think d 1.25GB will be enough for 1080P HD resolution......Or shud i Get a 2.5GB version from EVGA...... :D 

Nd will dis much of Vram(1.25GB) bottleneck the GPU?? :o

H67 - only GPU can be overclocked, not CPU
P67 - no on-board video but CPU can be overclocked
Z68 - combination of both boards + SSD Caching feature.

More detailed comparison here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155

PSU - Personally id push to get a 850w PSU, it will be a fair bit more expensive, but it gives you loads of headroom and will allow for a second GTX 570 to be added in SLI if you ever choose to upgrade. (if this is a route that appeals to you, make sure your motherboard choice supports SLI - some of the cheaper ones only support crossfire).

1GB is more than enough for 1080p.

i5-2500k wont bottle neck a 570. They will actually run very well together.
