Just wanted someone to look over my build and see that everything is good. I'm not planning to overclock at the moment so that's why I didn't include a CPU cooler. So let me know what you guys think! Any recommendations or criticism welcome.(Already have a case and hard drives)

  1. Microcenter will give you $50-60 off a Z68 or P67 Motherboard with the purchase of your 2500k.

    I bought my Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 for 109.99 when I bought my 2500k there. Much better motherboard than the ASRock Extreme 3 Gen 3. Mine booted first try and had all the options I wanted to OC mine very easily. Mine is running perfectly stable.

    Oh really? How does it work? Do I just add a motherboard to the cart with the i5?
  3. yeah Micro center gives you $50 off your motherboard with your CPU, upgrade whwat you have to the Extreme4 its 185 so it will come to 135 for you, i have the same setup, just picked mine up today
  4. and ive heard a lot of bad reviews about your GPU, try this one out, for 190.00
    a small step down but from what i hear a more reliable card, and comes factory overclocked as well still

  5. ^ That card is worse than the one in his OP. 560ti is much better than just the fermi.

    Yea I want to stay with a 560ti, which one would you recommend azeem?
  7. Well it depends on your budget. The 6950 is cheaper (sometimes) and better performance.

    I can spend around $240 on the GPU.
