Total is about 950$, without rebates. Like 900 with rebates.
I need some advice on the power supply which I already have that I posted above, will that be good enough for this system? Its 650W but I've read on forums about how some brands won't do the job at 650W for the GTX 580.
Also, I need some advice on an SSD... I have a little bit more cash, but that will be purchased at a later date. Don't give me something TOO expensive.
AND finally, a cooler. As I said before, this is my first build and I'm not an expert on this stuff, but will a cooler be absolutely necessary for me? This computer will be used for gaming, and I will need it for upcoming games like BF3, Skyrim, etc... Want to run these games maxed out.
Well I hope thats all the information needed, please any advice is welcome... thanks!
You have a $315 2600K that gives you ZERO advantage over the 2500K in regards to gaming, and you have a $200 board meant for dual vid cards. Also seeing how you have no plans on o/c any unlocked (K) cpu is a total waste of money.
Personally I'd have a bigger PSU for a 580, but then again It might not be needed i usually just stick a PSU i know is more then powerful enough for my system, I'm under the impression a good 650w (80+ certified) might do it but i don't know if your PSU is a good one or not. You don't need an additional cooler if your not overclocking. For SSD i think crucial M4 is a good buy atm, i found a 120gb one local for $250 to replace my OCZ agility 3 that was constantly BSOD'ing.
Alternative to the 580 imo would be crossfire 6950, amazing performance similar cost. Though the 580 is an absolute beast and doubt there's a game it can't max out. Also as mentioned if you don't wanna overclock ever, drop the 'k' model, and for gaming i5 is as good as i7 but $100 cheaper.
