Hi everyone

I wanted to build an office pc and I need your help to choose best configuration
As I said it’s an office pc so no games, I’m gonna use it for web development/designing (photoshop, dreamweaver, etc) and watching 1080p mkv movies.

I had this in mind
CPU: core i5 2500k (*)
Mobo: ASUS P8H67-M PRO (**)
RAM: Kingston 2x2gb 1333mhz (***)
GPU: integrated

* I’m not going to overclock but I chose K version because of its integrated graphic (HD 3000) which is better than i5 2500 (HD 2000)

** at first I chose ASUS P8H67 but it seems it doesn’t have any dvi/d-sub port and no usb3. So I think I have to choose P8H67-M PRO

*** I chose Kingston 2x2gb 1333mhz for 2-3 reasons
- The H67 mainboard doesn’t support more than 1333
- I think 4gb is enough
- crucial 2x2g 1600mhz is double as this price (please somebody tell me why?)

Well maybe i5 2500k is too much for my work but I want to keep for at least a few years but my budget is a little tight so if there are other better options please help

Thanks in advance

What's your budget?

I would prefer a serious Z68 motherboard along with a silent gpu and 8GB of RAM. Also I would stick with i5 2400 to save some money

thanks for answer

well I can pay around 400$ but now I learned that I have to buy a new PSU too

actualy I thought about your config before but as I need more cpu power than GPU I thought i better cut the GPU and spend the money on 2500k. am I wrong?

please tell me about Z68. what benefits does it have in comparison to P8H67?

Intel isn't an option with that budget (if you need a serious pc without crappy parts). The best option is maybe an AMD LLano build but you will need around 20-50$ more.

well I think intel works much better with multitasking but please gimme an AMD config and a budget intel config

maybe I should buy core i3. don't you think it would still work better than AMD in multitask?

No way...AMD' Quad Core Llano is way better at multitasking than i3 (Dual Core with Hyperthreading). i5 is better of course, but you spend so much on a CPU and not in a generally balanced build..
