Hi guys, i want to build a i5 system as iv'e seen how good they are and how much they beat all the bulldozers offered by AMD. So, this is the build:

i5 2500K @3.3ghz quad.

Gigabyte H61M-S2PV / Micro-ATX.

8GB's Of Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz.

Probably a gtx560 or hd7770.

Good for games like battlefield 3, gta, skyrim and stuff like that?

That's not much of a build yet. Are there other specifications?

Don't get a H61 motherboard with a "K" series processor, as you wouldn't be able to overclock. Either get a I5-35....

On the other hand, what's your budget; it would just be easier for me to make one.

i saw a 5fps increase from 8120 @4ghz to 3770k with hyperthreading off

please include budget, location, parts not required, if you are going to do overclocking and if you are going to do crossfire or SLI
