@bigmack70-great advice- if the OP is looking for max settings right now then the 2100/560Ti would be a better option-
personally I would trade more CPU muscle in favor of the GPU since I do alot of stuff besides game (video editing and encoding etc)
One thing I would say is that the Hyper 212+ while a great cooler for the money is large but I think the V3 can fit it but I would make sure before buying the 212+
which would be better than the 101
edit- also be careful with tall ram with the Hyper 212+ or any bigger cooler-I am not sure of the ram the OP has but ram with the tall heatsinks isnt worth it IMHO-low profile HS ram with a memory cooler is a better option in alot of situations and only needed if you are doing serious OCing or in a really hot climate

Brett928S2 - Nice! a man of few but harsh words- I like that LOL very simple and true statement-you wouldnt happen to be buddies with Malmental would you?-Mal is known for answers like that LOL

nice work bigmack70
and as long as his ram wont interfere with the Hyper 212+ Evo then the 212 is definitley the better choice from all reviews
even an older 212+ non evo which has dropped in price would be a good idea

for now, maybe i just use 6870 instead of other because the price is quit low compare to GTX560Ti which i need to add more $50.. but maybe after this i will upgrade to more better graphic card. thank you guys!

but as bigmack says you can go to a I3-2100 and save money towards the 560Ti
if gaming is all that matters then a I3-2100 will work great as a CPU
gaming is much more about the video card than the CPU
but overall I think you will be happier with the 2500k/HD 6870 build
on a single 1920x1080 screen it will play very close to max in most games
you wont be able to do ultra everything maxed out on the harder games
like Crysis 2/Metro as bigmack said
but will still be on some pretty good settings
on Metro 2033 DX11 1920x1080 with a Phenom II x 4 925 Deneb at 3.4hgz and a OCd HD 5770 I can play at very high settings just keep my AA/AF low
so your system with the HD 6870/2500K will be even better
and as far as using the computer for other things than gaming the 2500k will really be better

It'll max out all ultra in 1440x900.

unless you drop a 7970 in there, then expecting to be able to crank everygame up to max settings is totally unrealistic at 1080p.
Anyway a 6870 will make everything look plenty good enough anyway

you know I dont think the OP mentioned his resolution
without knowing that there is now way to answer that question LOL
if he is gaming at lower than 1920x1080p then the answer is yes
if he is gaming at 1920x1080 or higher than the answer is no
amusing....

ok guys, now, give me the best solution.. which one is better for gaming? either 2500k/HD6870 or 2100/gtx560Ti 448?

if i choose 2100, which one is better, 2100T or just 2100?

thank you!
