hey there :D 

im new here and i need help with my pc build im soon to buy, i wanna be able to have the option to play games on high with a good framerate and from the price ive seen its cheaper to buy parts/components to put together yourself rather than buy a already built pc.
the games i'd most likely look to play would be guild wars 2,

would you advise:

Intel i5 2500k CPU | MOTHERBOARD BUNDLE | 8GB MEMORY (already assembled cause im newb :D ) (nice OC)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intel-i5-2500k-CPU-MOTHERBOAR...

gtx 570 (maybe bid on one to save cash)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PNY-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-570-PC...


i have a cooler master gx 750w but the wires seem abit much for my pc case.

reason for new build is my pc aint really up to scratch (BIOSTAR n68s3) the cpu max's at phenom ii x4 955 which would bottleneck the gtx 570? xD

is there anything ive missed that i need to know?

i know this is abit newbie and stuff but help is appreciated thanks,

Not that bundle

The mb has a p67 chipset. Its the first chip set that could run sandy bridge processors and has been improved a lot with added features on Z 68 and Z 77 boards

The mb is m-ATX which might or might noit be an issue

The cpu cooler is not a good unit

and the RAM is probably rated foe 1.65 volt operation . Anything above 1.5 volt voids your processor warranty

The gtx 570 is a good card but there is sometimes better vale in the newer 7XXX series radeons
