Hi I'm about to buy a PC and I'm wondering if there is any changes that could be made.

I don't want to go any higher on price so if anything needs to be pricier then something else has to go down. Thanks in advance

You Could Maybe Go Down in the Cpu and Get an I5 2400, and get Atleast a 6850 or an Nvidia Gtx 550 ti. And you need a Quality Psu. You Shouldnt Buy that low end psu.

Cant you use this website?

Cheap power supplies are time bombs. It's not a question of if, but when they fail, and how much damage when they do.

Also, if you want to game on this, get a better video card. The 450 is pretty weak.

Also, the B75 chipset does not support overclocking. You will not be able to overclock your 2500k with that motherboard. Either get a better motherboard, or get a locked processor. You will get nothing out of it being unlocked with any B75 motherboard, because they can only modify the base clock, which can be done to any chip.

Looks pretty good. The i5-2400 is a very respectable chip, and OCZ might not be the best brand, but they do make reliable hardware.

It was either the i5 2400 or the new i5 3450, is the 2400 the right choice or does the 3450 out perform it?

The 3450 is a bit faster. There's about a 5%-8% performance difference from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge, all other things equal. The 3450 and 2400 are clocked at the same frequency, have the same amount of cache and same number of cores, so you can expect around 5%-8% more out of the 3450.

It will also draw a bit less power, but not much.

Right, Ill switch it over to the 3450 and get that. Also Im going to switch the GPU to the GTX 560 SE.

Thanks for the help!
