  1. Do you live in INDIA, if yes, that the cost of computer parts there is quite above normal.
    About your build:
    you should buy a dual channel RAM instead
    Graphics: Maybe a HD6670 from ATi
  2. thanks for the reply aaron..
  3. An HD6670 would bottleneck your 2500k massively. You would be better off buying an i3-2120 and an HD6870.

    That's pretty much true, nacos.
  5. i was planning to buy the i5-2500k to be future proof, i had planned to change the mobo to Asrock z68 pro3 gen3. Your thoughts please..

    Sorry for the noob questions, cause i am a noobie with this new build ;)
  6. you may wanna try on checking the ivy bridge equivalent of i5 2500k :) as for the board you plan on upgrading in the future, i've read some reviews/comparison and ASRock z68 pro3 is among the best z68 chipsets :) for GPU, hd 7770/6850/6870 or the equal nvidia gpus
