Hello, sorry for my bad language - it seems i registered to the worldwide community instead for the german...
I want to get a new computer soon and read some forums and want to get this system: (its for gaming/SWTOR)

Asrock P67 Pro 3
Intel I5-2500K
G.Skill RipJaws-X DIMM Kit 8GB PC3-10667U CL7-7-7-21
Gainward GeForce GTX 560 Phantom, 1GB



What is the max clock i will get with air cooling, 3.6ghz?
Don't know what cpu cooler i should get, maybe Mugen 2?
Is my Tagan Easycon 530W good enough?
Whats about the RAM? is there something better than this? or is the ram these days just style :D  (cause in germany the communities often say "just take a cheap one - doesnt matter with I5-2500k"
Is there a better ATI card than the 560 GTX Phantom for the same price?
I already got a Samsung HDJ642JJ 640gb - should i get another 640 and use raid0 or is it better to get 2 new 1tb for raid0?


best regards, rcy

I would get a z68 motherboard, pretty standard overclock for the i5 with a good aftermarket cooler would be about 4.5Ghz thats the highest safe overclock for the long run, but there's insane overclocking videos on Youtube of people taking them up to :pfff:  5Ghz, but they cant last long at that rate. I have an i5 with a Cooler Master V8 heatsink overclocked to 4.5Ghz :D  and it only brought the idle temperature up 2-3 degree's to 33 degrees and at max load running prime 95 it run's between 65 and 70 degrees, very stable, ran it for about 16 hours.

As for the RAM I think something more like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
its a little faster. '

As for the cooler i would go with the 212+

And I would stay with the Phantom

Good enough? Possibly - I don't know anything about that brand and I don't think I would trust it to newer equipment - you might want to look at upgrading.

General guidelines for any SB build are usually 2-4GB per slot, 1333MHz (PC 10666) - 1600MHz RAM (PC 12800), 1.5V, with timing 9-9-9-24. As long as your RAM meets those specs you should be good to go.

The 6950 and GTX 560 are both very excellent choices. Either one will work just fine.

That first hard drive should be plenty - you should look at getting an SSD instead of going for a RAID setup - with RAID you're more likely to have something fail.

The Mugen is good, but if EVGA is available where you live - try their cooler, it's supposed to be one of the best on the market in the sub $50 range.

As far as getting a new system you should fill out the form and what your budget is, preferred place for parts, etc, and then we can help you better.
