  1. Anyone?
  2. $800 is enough for 2500K, yes. For you though I'd recommend a cheaper setup so you could buy a new screen. 1024 is so 1990s :lol:

    If i buy 2500k can i still buy nvidia gtx 5xx? Oh yeah and new screen? :D
  4. For $800 you can buy a 2500K and 500-series yes, but probably not a new screen. At least not a quality screen. I recommend you use $600 on the computer (not enough for 2500K), and $200 for a new screen.

    Ok i use my old pc screen
    But for $800 with 2500k and gtx 5xx I still some money left? if yes what do you recommend for ram,psu,MB and other?
  6. At this price range you´d be better off with an AMD plataform (CPU & Mobo), so you could invest some more in graphic card, and a brand new monitor.

    This is the best you can buy make sure you buy the monitor for $99. If you don't make it to the monitor bundle then get a cheaper monitor.
