Here's a basic build that gets thrown around a lot on these forums: -$220 2500K -$50-60 case, maybe this Challenger (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) -$20 CD/DVD, whatever model -$55 Ripjaws 8gb 1600 RAM (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) -$70 Corsair TX650 PSU, after rebate -$30 Hyper 212+ -$100 Windows That's $545ish, leaving a bunch of room for a GPU. That could be an EVGA 580 at $470 after rebate (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) You're looking at a pretty nice machine. You can find a Sparkle 580 for only $450 if the budget is important, or go down to a 6970. Overclocking is getting your CPU, and possibly GPU (the GPU won't always OC much) to run faster than their stock settings. With a 2500K, it's a necessity, as it overclocks really easily. flyboy86 September 6, 2011 6:39:29 PM Do you need a monitor as well?
