If there is anything that won't work or you would suggest changing, please tell me.

More about : thoughts specs Anonymous a b B Homebuilt system July 12, 2012 10:51:32 AM if you are not video editing and just gaming or internet browsing ect. get a i5 instead. if you are going to overclock you will want a cpu cooler other than the intel stock; like a coolermaster 212+ or EVO and a 750 watt PSU is unnecessary, a 600-650 watt PSU will cover that. Intel Core i5 2500K CPU - $225.00 Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO $39.00 inc. GST Corsair TX-650 V2 Power Supply $115.00 then take the difference and get: MSI Radeon HD7950 $419.00 m 0 l jumbolkna July 12, 2012 11:03:33 AM I agree with looniam, a 270k seems overkill. A SSD may be another option with the remaining cash.
