This is my third incarnation of my first build after taking some advice from the forum. I don't plan on gaming but am trying to build a future proof system that can also handle photoshop, surfing, office work, hd video streaming with ease . I may or may not even add a GPU outside of the Intel Integrated (thoughts). I have a microcenter near me so am choosing to go with the 2500k because of the great price and capability, I am aware it may be overkill. I have a external 300gb hardrive that i will use for storage until prices fall. I did however add a 64gb ssd to add speed on start up and running windows. So i am basically trying to build a super fast system that will blaze through normal usage, is futureproof, can add a decent GPU if I decide to game.
