I would get the i5-2400 instead of the i5-2500. IMO, $30 is not worth 100 MHz.

For 6 dlls more you can get a Gigabyte z77 motherboard. This motherboard will allow you to overclock your cpu '

For 8 dlls more you can get a Core i5 2500k which is very well worth the extra price.

I also don't understand why this forum recommends newegg, they charge for shipping on most things and taxes in some places, newegg zombies. Don't come up with the argument that newegg has better return policy because I've dealt with amazon and it was fantastic.

He said he isn't OCing. If he had wrote maybe to overclocking, then the i5-2500k would have been fine to suggest.
