Okay good now we got something to work with, first everything looks good so far but if oyu want to save some money go with the 2500K, and have you ever though of getting maybe a SSD for better load times on your games?

Also 800W battery is overkill unless you are using SLI or CrossFire

Hey :)  thanks for your response :) 
I was thinking about SSD for windows 7 and maybe 1-2 games, so about 60 GB.
I will go do some research on that after i get back from work tonight.

Does the I7-2600k add not to much?? compared to the 2500k.
or can you better buy 2500k and after 3 years buy a new processor?

How much power do you suggest? 700?

i5 is better for gaming as we have seen so far, the i7 is good but not worth it. Yes after 3 years it may need updated, the 800 should be good just incase you plan to OC

Go for the M4 crucial 124gb. 64gb will be easily filled up.

The 560ti would easily be powered up by a quality 500w system. If you want more headroom a good 600w would be best.

He won't need 300 more watts just to OC.

but if he wants to add another 560 it will be needed, plus he can use it on another build in the future as well

Yeah, if he would be going SLI then 800w would be best.

i wanna go sli in about 1-2 years
Is 750 W also enough? or 800 better??
October 19, 2011 3:07:19 PM

750w is just enough. 800w is best.
