NEW PC Build (Super confused with parts) NEED Help PLZ!!!

Approximate Purchase Date: 1-2 weeks

Budget Range: ~800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching movies, internet

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, OS

Preferred Website:

Country: US

Parts Preferences: none

Overclocking: maybe

SLI or Crossfire: maybe in the coming months but not now

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 would be great

Additional Comments: Now the problem here is with the CPU and MOBO.. I want my PC to be running a GTX 570 without any problems.. Since the mobo of my choice doesnt have any PCIe 2.0 slots will the GTX 570 work on the ASRock extreme3 gen3 without any problems?? Also if it does, will I be better off buying an i5-2500K or i5-3570K?? Those are the two main problems with me.. Need some answers on that ASAP, thanks.

Here is my current build order: (Please criticize or suggest if you think anything is wrong)

CPU : i5-3570k or i5-2500k (whichever one works better with my build)

MOBO: ASRock extreme3 gen3 or ASRock pro3 gen3


RAM: Any 8GB DDR3 RAM (please suggest some)

CASE: CM Storm Scout

HDD: Any affordable 1TB HDD (please suggest some)

PSU: Any affordable ~750 Watt PSU or lower if possible. (suggest plz)


I would also want to do liquid cooling so suggest some cheap ones too :b

So my main problem is with the MOBO and CPU, if i go with 2500k and ASRock extreme3 will GTX 570 work with these parts?? If not could you suggest something that will go with this build which is not very pricey??

Thanks Alot! Please reply fast :)

EDIT: I found a link to NCIX and they are running a deal for $219.99 for i5-3570K which is the same price as i5-2500k on amazon.. It ends in 24hrs I really wanna buy it but is it better or not??

Thanks again

    Really sorry about that man.. For some reason it wasnt showing in my threads on my profile :??: So I thought that it wasnt gonna show up so I made a new one..

    Yes my budget is around 800 bucks and thanks for clearing up the PCIe 3.0 for me!! Also what would u recommend 3570K or 2500K?
  3. Anyone??

    If I go with the Sandy Bridge 2500k - will the GPU still work?? Some people saying yes some no??
  4. If you go with 2500k, the GPU will work EXACTLY the same as with the 3570k. It's really personal preference.
  5. Ok thanks alot so I think I will go with the i5-2500k then!
