More about : building gaming rig comments AdrianPerry September 15, 2011 7:46:54 AM The i5-2400 isn't an over-clockable processor making the z68 motherboard effectively useless unless you want the SSD Caching feature. Either, switch to a cheaper H67 motherboard, or upgrade to a 'K' series processor (i5-2500k being the popular choice). RAM is good, but possibly consider 2x4GB (8GB total) if you can fit it into budget. PSU - Overkill for a single card. 500w would be plenty. HDD - Take a look at the Samsung SpinPoint F3 - it seems to be the HDD of choice currently. Filling in this template: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/261222-13-build-adv...
