Final Gaming Build - Opinions pls -$800 Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: May 20, 2012 1:07 PM in Systems Share judius May 20, 2012 6:08:23 AM Looking for a very solid gaming rig to last for a while, mainly playing Diablo3 and possibly a few more demanding titles with light web browsing. Wont be overclocking or using crossfire. Is this a really solid build to go with? Is everything compatible? the total was about 800. Wasn't sure on motherboard. -Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -Western Digital RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -Coolermaster 430 elite case I know this is a little overkill for diablo3 but is it smarter to go with the i5-2500k and gta 560ti instead of say an i3-2120/gtx 550ti for about 170 dollars more?
