I'm planning to build my own Mid range gaming PC, this is the 1st time in more sophisticated era. My last built PC was on 2005.
What do you guys think?
Processor: i5-2500k or Ivy I5-3450
MOBO: P8Z68 – V LX or ASUS P8Z77-V LX
GCard: ASUS GTX550-TI TOP
RAM: CORSAIR 8GB 1600MHZ
If i5-2500K + P8Z68-V LX vs i5-3450+ P8z77-V LX, which one will perform better? Based on stock performance?
I am in doubt and don’t know which one I should choose between those two combination. For the graphic card, I prefer to use GTX550-Ti TOP which is cost me around USD170 in my country.
I5-2500K is around USD200 and i5-3450 is slightly expensive.
Both MOBO would cost me around USD120 z68 - USD135 z77..
