I'm working on building my 2nd computer and wanted it for mostly gaming purposes. Here is what I've ordered/proposed so far. If you have any better ideas or suggestions please let me know! Or know of a better place to order from that is cheaper please also let me know. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Are these the only components that you need, because I see a HD, & DVD Burner missing?
I would also say that you are overkill in the CPU department for budget gaming build. I would go with the i3 2120 (if you stay with Intel CPU's) and use the 560 Ti or AMD 6950 for the GPU, it would be close in price.
I would also consider a z68 based mobo, just to get Quick Sync options and the better platform, IMHO.
I was figuring to go with the i5 2500k so I have something to build off of and will be good for awhile. I plan to overclock also but the main goal is a gaming PC. I was also thinking of using SLI and getting (2) of the GTX 460's since they are a good price with the rebate? I have the hard drive and DVD Burner from an old comp so I was planning on using those to lower costs.
I would still recommend getting a z68 based mobo. This way you have all of the options that you would need and not be limited by the p67 based mobo. The 2500k is a good CPU, but your system isn't balanced for the budget, that is why I suggested the i3 2120 and a 560Ti or 6950 GPU. This setup would net you the most gaming for the $, but if you want to stick with the 2500k that is fine too.
I wouldn't bank on the rebates, because they more difficult to cash in on them, so keep that in mind. I try to get items that are solid and are rebate free (promo codes are the best, IMHO). It's up to you, but most rebates are 1 item per address, so getting 2 x 460's w/rebate will probably be out of the question. You should be able to get the first 460 w/rebate, but the 2nd you might be out of luck (I haven't checked to see if this is the case, but I'd research it to be sure).
I'm not a big fan of your case selection, because it only comes w/1 120mm fan. I'd opt for a case w/2 or more case fans for similar $, IMHO. I like some of Rosewill cases around the $50 price range. I do like the Cooler Master HAF (High Air Flow) 912, because it has lots of flexibility (placement of HD's can be changed) and it also comes w/2 x 120mm fans. It also has room for good cable management and also room for a water cooling setup, if you go that far with it. It's usually around $50-60 and well worth it, IMHO.
And listen about his case recommendation. I've worked with the V3 and the thing is just cheap. Awful build quality, just feels flimsy. I just got a chance to build a system with the Cooler Master HAF 912 and that is a really solid case.
