Hello everyone ^ _ ^;

I'm between I7 2500K, 2600K (with hyper-threading) and I5 3570K (which supports pci-e 3) but i 'll most propably take a pci-e 2 graphics card because it is cheaper and almost the same) What do you reccommend??

  1. Least expensive option.

    edit;
    and spend a bit more on the graphics card.
  2. do you think that i should take a pci 3 graphics card
  3. Maybe.
    But do you want to spend that much money on the graphics card and get the i5-3570K too?
  4. i have found a guy that sells me a 2600k for $250...it also overcloacks better than
    3570k doesnt it??
  5. What CPU cooler did you buy?

    spend more on GPU an less on CPU if you need to keep to a budget.
  7. i just found that 3570 costs 229$ on amazon...it is cheaper than 2600
  8. Does that open the door to PCI-e 3.0 for your budget?

    probably a Corsair Hydro H80 or H100...Is it good??
  10. Spend less on the CPU cooler and more on the graphics card.
  11. any other suggestions??

    What models of graphics card are you looking at? What have you selected for a power supply?
  13. i want an nvidia 560 and i ll probably buy an 850 watt psu
  14. 2600k would be perfect, ivybridge hasnt proven itself for the long haul and its temps with overclocking are worrysome. photoshop will take advantage of hyperthreading. i suggest you grab that 2600k for 250 and overclock the pants off it. sandybridge has proven itself to be a fantastic cpu
  15. GO with the cooler master hyper 212+ and buy the i7-2600k.

    Be sure to buy a branded power supply. For hard gaming I would go with at least a GTX 560Ti or GTX 480, the GTX 560 will be slow unless you are playing at 1280x720.
  17. what, the GTX 560 would be slow?? i dont see much difference with the Ti
    except the price....Ok,so I buy the 2600k and a coolermaster hyper cooler??
    AND would an nvidia be good to connect it into a led TV??
  18. amd and nvidia both make excellent cards
  19. AMD 7xxx, does better in general purpose graphics which would be good for the photoshop.
    if your looking at the GTX560 then the ti is just a factory OC of the base card that you could probably do yourself
  20. im pretty sure the ti is actually a whole different beast. has the arcitecture of a gtx 570, whereas the 560 does not
