New ~$1000 Build Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: September 28, 2011 5:38 PM in Systems Share promethium3000 September 28, 2011 3:40:36 PM Hello, I'd like to get some comments on a new build I plan on putting together. The computers main use would be gaming. I will be doing some OCing, especially the processor. Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My main question was with the Motherboard, I figured the Gen3 board would be cool for some future-proofing. I wasn't sure though if I should bother upgrading the Z68 chipset. The power supply is probably overkill, but better safe than sorry. Thanks.
