  1. you could save hundreds of dollars by tuning your selections .

    A $70 case will perform as well
    you dont need a 750 watt psu
    There are good Z68 mb's that cost $70 less
    Even the processor is available cheaper

    HOLY CRAP!! $14.00 an hour at Walmart?? What are you...The owner?..My wife is an LPN at an Orthopedic surgeons office, and only makes$15.00 an hr!
  3. I guess nurses don't make much then?

    Do you plan to SLI later? Overclocking? What's your resolution?

    Yes when i get some extra money and can a CM hyper 212+ handle my i5 up to 4ghz?
  6. the stock cooler can handle the 2500k up to 4 GHz
  7. Looks pretty good but as an owner of the Graphite 600T, I will tell you - it's a great case but it is BIG. Really big. Plus the fans are a bit of a hassle to get working - you'll need a couple of Y fan connectors to connect them to your PSU instead of your motherboard.

    If you wanted to stick with Corsair try the Carbide 400R instead - it's about half the price and still an excellent case - well worth buying.
  8. the i5-2500k is a good alrounder for a CPU. i would go for somthing along thes lines of a "p8z68 mother board from asus" i have the Corsair graphite 600t and i can tell you its like a fridge in there! well worth the extra cash..... (tho i paid £220 for mine in the uk about 3 weeks ago and i can tell you i would of rather paid $170 lol!....

    can you go for a small and cheeper hard drive? just with prices so high your better off buying a smaller hardrive (250/500gb) and investing into a solid state drive.... with all these floods in thailand your better waiting till around march for when they SHOULD start comming back down in price again
