Hello,

I need help. I am pricing and finding parts to build a new desktop. i have decided i am going to buy the DP55KG motherboard and various parts but i can not decide and or find the right video cards.

The list of parts i'm planning on buying are as is:
DP55KG
Intel Core i5 Processor LGA 1156
Corsair Vengeance 8 GB's RAM

I am how ever looking at a Nvidia GeForce GT430 and a Nvidia GeForce GT550

Not Looking to pay over 200 if possible based on the specs i'm planning on having

Why go with LGA1156 when LGA1155 has been out for a while?
GTX550Ti if you are planning on gaming the GT430 is a basic card with limited gaming capabilities.

The motherboard takes LGA1156 is why i'm gonna be using that. and what's the difference between the two? they both look the same spec wise just ones newer, performs smoother i'm guessing?
and thank you for your feedback.

If you have neither you should go with a LGA1155 setup, it is not only smoother it is faster. For 1080P gaming I recommend at minimum GTX560Ti!
Did not select the fastest LGA1155 I5 but did select the Fastest LGA1156 I5 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/363?vs=191

Thank you for all the help and based on the specs how big should the power supply be? (not too sure on the voltage of all this stuff perhaps you could help me?)

500watt quality unit would be sufficient with a single GTX560Ti. Brands to look for are Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, Enermax, XFX, OCZ and PC Power and Cooling.
Example http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


i think i'm gonna be using the GTX550Ti either the 1024MB or the 2048MB model in this computer so should i stick with a 500watt unit or lower?

500watts is a good size the components pull only what they need and it is good to have some extra headroom.
GTX550 is not powerful to take advantage of the full 2GB and it is not worth paying extra money just for the increase in Vram. It will run out of processing power before running out of memory with 1GB.

so in other words i should stick with the 1GB or just go with a GTX560Ti? If my pocket allows me i will go with the best of the two, but say i did buy the 1GB card, that power supply will power it all even with the extra power?
