The 2500 is the part you want You also need 1.5 volt RAM so the sticks you have chosen should be off the menu even if they are cheap . m 0 l rvilkman September 26, 2011 11:56:35 AM Or even i5 2400, depending a little bit on the prices. Currently the sale at newegg makes i5 2500 better choice, but if the difference is $5-10 it's ok to go higher anything more, stick to the i5 2400. I would get PC power and cooling Silencer Mark II 650W which is still on sale until the 28th. $69.99 ( with CC before $20 MIR ) And Antec 300 Illusion for case on sale until the 28th. $44.99 ( with CC ) G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) $25.99 Should work ok for memory, it is 1.5V. Also if you still have money left. Change the HDD to Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB $59.99 Faster and more reliable. MSI GPU's have been working great for me. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
