Which Pc build should i get

Hello,
I was going to make a custom mid range computer when my friend suggested this computer from this shop called MLN.
My build is:
Intel CPU Core i5 2500k, 3.3ghz
AsRock Extreme 4 Gen3
G.skill ripjawsx 8gb (2x4gb)
Coolermaster Storm Enforcer
XFX Ati Radeon 6850 1GB
Seagate Momentus XT 500GB
costing around $1,130

MLN's build:(wasn't that specific)
Intel CPU Core i5 2400
Chipset H55
8gb ddr3 ram
1TB hdd
2gb dedicated nVidia GeForce gtx 560

More about which build
  1. Ok, apart from the graphics card, where his is better, your build is far more solid.
    First of all, H55 is not a great chipset.

    Second, your cu will oc well and easy, his not so much....

    Also you dont metion what PSU you want to get or monitor and resolution :D.
  2. Without a doubt id take your listed build. Id possibly look into spending a touch more on the GPU (6870) or maybe even sink a little more and stretch for a 6950. But other than that, nice overall build.
  3. well, i'm planning on overclocking my graphics card so it can run as fast as the 6870, the psu is the Coolermaster GX 750w, and the monitor i have is a LG E2340 which runs at 1920x1200 resolution
  4. oh, and apparently, they can swap chipset from h55 to z68 with no charge
