More about need please
  1. If you're not going to overclock, get the i5-3450.
  2. only reason i picked the 2500k was i read ( boost up to 3.7ghz when gaming) so though it would be better? plus are other specs good? and what motherboard
  3. No. If you're not overclocking, the 3450 beats it.
    Here is a solid H77 board:

    Overkill on the PSU, so get this instead.

    Bad choice for an SSD; this is a better one:

    Also, you may want to consider getting a 7850 over the 560 Ti, as it beats it in most games:

  4. so i wont need any psu over 600w? even if i wanna upgrade later on to 680?

    will that mother board support 1 x SSD(the one you said) and anthor 1tb HD(could you name few good 1tb harddrives to go with my SSD.
  5. You don't slot the HDD and the SSD into the mobo....

    Western Digital Caviar Black/Blue drives are very good, though if you need to go cheaper, Seagate Barracuda drives are also decent for their price.

    Nope, 600 watts is more than enough for any single GPU card.
  6. ah ok what about this mobo ASRock Z68 Extreme3 or is that to much for what i need?

    im new to building pc's i just want a fast new gaming pc, they plug in to dvd writer do they?

    The Z68 allows overclocking, which you don't need. It's easier just to get the 3450+H77 board.
