  1. Your build is compatible, but not the best in one respect.

    The 2500 will run in that Z68 based motherboard, but you can not oc the 2500, like you can the 2500K
    It is definitely worth it to buy the 2500K and pay the smallish price premium. Your 3.3 cpu can then easily be a 4.0-4.5 cpu.

    I agree - pay the difference and get the K. Also that video card isn't the best for the price. If you get the 560, get the TI. The regular 560 isn't worth it in that price range - go for this instead: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948

    You will save $30 on the video card and that will make up the difference allowing you to get the 2500K.
  3. will this build be able to run skyrim with that video card and 2500k

    What resolution is out TV using?
    Is it 720p or 1080p?
    If 1080p, it will be fine.
    If 720p, consider a monitor.
  9. its 720 what size of monitor do u think i should get
  10. Get a good 1080p monitor.
    Maybe one that is at least 20 inches.

    would it make much of a difference if i changed the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) to EVGA GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi)

    The GTX 560 is slightly weaker than the GTX 560 Ti.
    However, the GTX 560 can overclock to GTX 560 Ti performance, maybe more.
    If you can overclock it, it's a reasonable choice.
    If not, I guess you can live with it.
    It's a good card at the end of the day.
  12. would it matter if i took the hard drive from this computer and used it for my build its 500gb and i have a 1tb external

    Absolutely - if you can you should definitely reuse your HDs right now - the shortages have caused HD prices to skyrocket.
