  1. alot better then most the people i help out configuring there hardware, If theres something that would be lacking slightle i would say graphics but thats not gunna be an issue unless your playing 1920x1080 and your talking gams like bf3, but even then ull playing it fine on just high
  2. thanks for appreciation mate

    any changes? or suggestions?
  3. Change the PSU to OCZ on the cheap or corsair or Antec.
  4. I love my 2500K, it's awesome, but the stock cooler kind of sucks, so I'd recommend splurging on a nice one - especially if you want to look into overclocking.

    If you find a good deal on hdd's - a 6 gb/s connection should show improvement over a larger 3 gb/s hdd if you can deal with lower capacity.
  5. Here is my suggestion:

    Core i5 2500k
    Asus P8Z68-V DELUXE
    Corsair VENGEANCE DDR3 8GB-1600
    Msi N560GTX-Ti Hawk 1 gb (why don't you get a AMD 7000 series card)
    COOLER MASTER CHASSIS CM STROM ENFORCE
    Corsair TX650 or Antec equivalent
    OCZ 64Gb SSD
    CoolerMaster 212 Evo CPU Cooler
  6. hmmm ive heard that amd produce more heat and it lose performance after some time?

    thnx for the suggestion i will keep in mind going to buy next week :)
  7. Its their Bulldozer CPU's people are referring to. Their flagship, the FX - 8150 if I'm not mistaken is $50 more expensive than the Core i5 2500K, while the Core i5 2500K performs better, runs cooler and is cheaper.

    AMD's graphics cards are great (from what I've heard), but I will ALWAYS buy Geforce, before considering AMD.
