I5 2400+gtx 570 or i5 2500k+gtx 560ti

hi guys :hello: .
I will buy my new pc sooooon :bounce:
but here is a trap ;)

IS THE i5 2400 is enough for games for 5 years or the i5 2500k ( overclockable ) ????
if i get the i5 2400 i would grab one gtx 570. AND if i get the 2500k one i would grab the gtx 560 ti << SO what to do??

i do play games alot :p
btw the mobo would be either ASUS P8Z68-V LX or MSI P67A-GD55 ?? which is better???????????

for the GPU this edition of :

gtx 560ti (( Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 Ti SuperOC White Edition)) or
(( ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP )) I heard that the galaxy one is about the same as gtx 570 stock
my monitor is 1900x1080p and xfx 550watt pro core edition
I REALLY NEED HELP FROM EXPERIENCED PEOPLE PLS :??:

More about 2400 2500k 560ti
  1. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/363?vs=288

    difference in gaming is negligible

    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/363?vs=443

    even the 3960x gives barely any performance increase in gaming

    EDIT: i always preferred msi, but the z68 chipset is better
  2. If you're going to be using it for five years then get the 2500K. The ASUS motherboard you listed has a better chipset for Sandy Bridge. Both of the graphics cards are pretty good but the 570 is around $100 more (I think) and it's only a little improvement. So in conclusion I think the best would be the 2500K, GTX 560 ti and the ASUS motherboard with the Z68 chipset

    Hope it helped! :)
  3. Or wait for a few weeks and go IVB or hope that it unsettles some SB prices and you can get a cheap 2500K
  4. i5-2500k, msi 560ti hawk
  5. the 2400 and 570 is going to be quite a bit better in gaming.

    Get the 560ti hawk, galaxy cards aren't that good. Also the twinfrozr iii cooler is much better and will offer much better overclocks.

    ok thanks I will get the hawk :)
    but what about the mobo :)
    and 4g is enough for gaming . Is there a difference if i get a one stick or dual (2*2g) . do games that will upcome need that much of rams??? :D
  13. Just mind you that if someday in the future you go for SLI these cards.
    The better VGA model to SLI is the reference design one, ok?

    wont sli dude ;)
  15. 8G if you can get it, my system using 5.5 out of 6G running BF3 after several sessions, although this has gotten worse recently.
  16. i think that gtx570 and i5 2500k will be best
    but in ur case i5 2400 and gtx 570 is better option just get a good mobo like z68 with sli option
