1K Build

Okay so I'm finally getting a new computer for myself. I've been building computers for other people, and I finally have enough for a $1000 budget gaming rig.

Specs
Processor i5 2500k

MotherBoard MSI P67A-G45 (B3) LGA 1155

Ram Patriot G2 8GB (4GB x 2)

GPU Asus GTX 560 Ti

PSU XFX Core Edt. Pro 650w

Heat sink Xygmatech Gaia

Case Still deciding leaning towards Corsair 500R

Hard Drive Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

CD Drive Asus 24x DVD burner

  1. great build . that xfx psu is expensive . here is a cheaper psu wich is reliable ive got it in my system.

    im dont know where you are getting your parts so i just went to pccg
  2. That one is more expensive. The XFX one on Newegg is 89.99 while the antec one is 99.99.
    Would a 650 be enough to run 560 ti in SLI, because if it can't I will probably opt for a 750w. Also Cases, cases anyone. What is your favorite case.
  3. The 500R is pretty nice and reasonably priced. 650W of power should do it if you have a reliable PSU but I'd go for 750W for extra room.

    Sexiest case ever made

  4. Looks sick, but it is $200 dollars and I am not looking to spend that much. I'm going to get the XFX 750w but I'm debating on weather or not to get the modular for an extra 15. More cases please. I want to see what people like and what is good, you can only go so far with top rated cases on newegg.

  7. Seriously Hiya, I think I've followed that format like once and I have like 6-7 other threads where I didn't use the format and No one said anything because they aren't lazy and can copy and paste stuff in to Google.

    WTF? Are you for real? You ask for build advice, don't use the sticky at the top of this forum, and mention someone other than you being lazy? I hope peeps on this thread start linking crap to Chinese newegg for the the fck of it.
  10. I'm not going to have this conversation with you In a forum. If you have a problem with it you can leave. No one said you HAVE TO comment on my thread. What was with the crazy newegg link? And I like both those cases so I'm going to do some research now.
  11. Okay so I changed my case to the 600t, My love overcame my wallet on this one. and I changed my gpu to the MSI N560GTX Hawk, little more expensive for better hardware, cooler and, factory OC. Does anyone know if I will be able to run 2 of these with a 750w PSU?
  12. Oh and really quick if you have any cases that you think are just better than the 600t I'm still open for suggestions.
  13. 560 sli will run well on a 750w psu
