http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dIkK ok so this is 627 which is lowest possible just on the bottom chose lowest possible merchants and then if you want 550ti 2 gb try this for 130$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 750 but can overclock but will need once again a cooler like 212 plus so thats 30$ more. the reason your not getting as many responds is because you want i5 2500k and 550ti 2 gb and the os included at around 650$ price range and i think its kinda impossible i think i3/ 550 ti or something like that also why 2 gb? what is your res?
I was going to get that one because at microcenter by my house it is only $10 more and I thought that if it performs better then yay but if it is just a gimmick then i only wasted $10
By the way I was looking around and it looks like a i5 2500k is not going to happen on this budget, and was wondering what you guys thought of the i3 and the amd phenom 2 x4 965 Black edition, keeping in mind that I will be overclocking
If you are overclocking, don't look at an AMD CPU. They are known for having over heating problems.
? What are you basing this on? Amd's are the only choice for overclocking in the sub $200 market. Overclocking in general produces more heat from both intel and AMD. Oh and btw you should check out ivy bridges temps in overclocking vs sandy.
