However, i hardly buy new computers and i want to be able to use this cheap system for 4-5 years. So in a few years i would like to enhance performance is i need to via overclocking, which the 2400k isnt good for in the build above.
So if it's possible to go for a overclockable 2500k within budget i will go for that build.
