Hey everyone, some of you might know I posted once a build that consist two EVGA 550 Ti in SLI, now I wanted to change everything on this build. I want the power and performance for lesser budget, this build is on tight budget so I may consider some additional request or recommendation. For now, I'm using GTX 670. Here is my build, any recommendation or troubleshoot like that psu don't fit in the mobo psu connector, something like that.

NEVER get a Green drive as your boot drive. It will be a huge bottleneck. HDDs are the biggest bottlenecks in systems. Get the Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm drive for only $20 more.

You are using an h61 MoBo (non-overclockable) with an overclockable CPU. Get the i5 2500 (non "k") or even the i5 2400 instead.

You can also check out the CoolerMaster Elite 430 for a budget case.

I'm getting the CPU from NCIX, so the price of i5-2500 and i5-2500k may vary, the k cost about $200 and the non-k cost about $210, since there is a special code of some sort. Can you recommend me a mobo that will be best for my specs and can be overclockable somehow? I might consider if $21 more than but not less than my current mobo.

Oic.. if the 2500k is cheaper then go for it. I only said that because I was assuming the non "k" series is cheaper.

Unfortunately, overclockable MoBo's will cost more than $60 so can't recommend anything in that price range. I can be mistaken though and someone might know something I don't.

You can also check out the i5-2400. Its 189 I think in the US NCIX site. In terms of gaming you would not lose that much. Maybe a couple of FPS but that is it. Gaming is GPU-intensive. Since you have a very good GPU I don't think it would be an issue.
