New Build, slightly flexible budget.

Hi everyone, I'm after opinions on this build i am considering. Let me know of any changes you would personally make. I do intend to overclock in the future but this isn't a major part of my decision. I've got the following in mind:


Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3Ghz $230.0

G.Skill Sniper 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 1333 F3-10666CL9D-8GBSR $48.0

HIS 1GB 6770 PCI-E VGA Card $101.0

Corsair CX500 ATX Power Supply Unit $77.0

Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3PB3 P67 DDR3 Intel 1155pin Motherboard $109

Total is $565.00. From MSY in Australia.

Will be reusing my case, dvd drive and HDD. Looking forward to your opinions!

  1. You're getting a processor with the series K in the title yet you're going to get a motherboard that doesn't support that feature you need a P67/Z68 motherboard to support the overclocking of K from the processor.
