Best get a 6870 if you can afford a i5-2500k. Games are more on GPU power than CPU power. Just make sure you squeeze a 6870 on your budget. You won't regret it.
Okay, I'll go with the 6870. But I may have to cheap out a little bit on the MOBO.
What do you think of this mobo? -- ASRock Z68 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157251
I'm also debating the i5 2500k or just the plain 2500 because idk if I will actually OC. (then i can also save a bit on the mobo). But I'm leaning towards the K just in case and for better futureproofing. Your thoughts?
Thanks a lot!
