Get a samsung spinpoint 1tb. Unless you have 2tbs of pictures worth of yourself, there is no reason for getting 3tb even WITH a $25 off. Harddrive prices are always going down. By the time you max your 1tb, prices would have gotten down by a bit.
that's right. you would see no difference in gaming since both CPUs would bottleneck the nvidia GTX560. the i5-2400 / gtx 570 would give you better performance, if you lack the intelligence to see that then that is your noobish issue.
I have a GTX560ti and it's closer to the gtx560 then it is the GTX570, so you are wrong there also.
Check it. If you lack the intelligence to see that then that is your noobish issue. Also, I really don't get the logic in your reasoning IF the i5-2500k bottlenecks a 560ti then why would you suggest a WEAKER CPU i5-2400 with a STRONGER GPU GTX570. I know bottleneck sounds cool for you but you shouldn't just throw it and throw that without checking the facts.
