  1. Your build doesn't make sense. Why get a i5 - 2500k if you aren't going to overclock?
    Secondly, at that resolution, I'd want a better GPU.
  2. What is wrong with the i5? Most games can take advantage of the i5 even if its not overclocked.


    Ah I did just realise I was getting the 2500(K) haha.

    I could go with just the 2500
  3. If you're not going to overclock, get an i5 2500/2400. But i really think you should get an i5 2500k and OC it, it's amazingly easy to OC and with that cooler you will have no problems at 4+ GHz. If you want to save some money get the haf 912. Everything else looks fine to me.

    EDIT: Oh... I just noticed the resolution... You might want to SLI that 560 ti...
  4. Yes thank you everyone for your comments and help, I would of never noticed I was getting a K version haha. Anyways im fairly new to building and I would be kind of scared to even try to OC my CPU in worries of damaging something.
  5. One more thing, I would like to lower my GPU to around a $200 price range GPU but all of them only have 1GB of Memory. Would this cause a problem in games like BF3? I have a few buddies that only have 1GB of memory and their game constantly crashes because of memory space filling up.
  6. Dude like I said, the at the resolution you are playing at, I don't think you should go less than $300 on a GPU. Really, a GTX 560 Ti retails between $230 - $270 and handles games at 1900 x 1200. Your resolution is at 25

Really, a GTX 560 Ti retails between $230 - $270 and handles games at 1900 x 1200. Your resolution is at 2560 x 1600. At that resolution a single GTX 580 won't even be enough! Get a smaller monitor or you'll be left playing games at 1900 x 1200 on a monitor that runs at 2560 x 1600.
