Hello,
I'm trying to build a new gaming PC

Specs I'm looking for are:
Mobo: H77 chipset gigabyte board
CPU: core i5 2500K
GPU: GTX580
RAM: Dual channel DDR3 1600mhz 16GB
HDD: 3TB SATAIII

how does this sound? Are the components compatible with each other? I'm gonna buy all my parts from ebay. So, does this system sound good for $1000USD(Monitor case included)? Also, is there a too big performance difference between the CPU and GPU and RAM?

Looking forward to your answers

Thanks

Muujig

No, you have a non-OCable MOBO with an OCable CPU. Get a Z68 chipset motherboard, like the Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H. SATA III is yet to be saturated; SATA II isn't even fully saturated yet by HDDs. Modern HDDs only saturate 1.5GB/s.

That was a big help, didn't really know much about OCable chipset and stuff till now. Going for the Z77 board
Is there anything else to add?

Thanks
