  2. Thanks for your reply, i have looked through your guide and do like it a lot, only thing im looking at changing is putting the graphics card down a bit in order to get a better processor such as I7.

    I will look more into it sometime in the next week when me and my friend can go through the list in more detail.

    If any1 else has any suggestions i will take a look into that as well.

  3. no no no dont get i7.

    I7 is nothing but i5 with hyperthreading.

    Games dont benifit from ht but they suffer in some cases.

    Even if u see a diff it will be of 2-5 fps.

    Ask anybody on toms they will point out at i5 2500k.

    If u are not going to over clock then 2500k is waste.
    Thats why i suggested 2400 as k suggest a unlocked processor which means they can oc .

    The build i suggested is perfect for u.

    If u oc and or put dual gpu then change the mobo to asrock z68 extreme3 gen3 and if ur budget permits then extreme4 :D
