Need some more help with a parts list, this is a pure gaming computer nothing else in mind for it, I want the best graphical quality/performance I can achieve for my price 1500$ is my limit, probably wont be overclocking anything unless its a large gain, newegg for reference to parts, dont need monitor (24'' is what I'm going ot be using) , mouse, keyboard and peripherals, already have them
Now heres where I need the advice, on a good motherboard, will probably use a gtx 580 for my card, for when I get the money I can drop another in. Will buy a cheap Dvd writer, and a SSD if its worth it, need more opinions on them. Is there any good upgrades I can do to the list above, thats cheap and will give me a good bang for my buck, also is there any extra basic cords/cables I have to buy too?
It would depend on how much you overclock it. The i5-2500k comes stock at 3.3 ghz and if you take it up to 4.3ghz then your adding 1ghz to the cpu speed which will make a noticable difference. Also Intel just released some new Sandy Bridge cpu's and one of them is a i5-2550k with a stock speed of 3.4ghz.
