I’m building a gaming/everyday use/work pc, and need some suggestions. At the moment I already have a few things, the power supply, case, dvd drive, and windows. After all of these parts were bought, I ended up with around 550 dollars to spend.

I need help deciding what other parts to purchase. I am leaning towards the i5 3570k with a Cooler Master hyper 212 evo, but I’m not sure if that leaves me with enough money on other components.

If you guys were in my position, what would be the parts you buy using 550 dollars?

Parts I Need:

Processor
After Market Heatsink
Motherboard
Hard drive(s)
Ram
Graphics Card


All help is much appreciated!

Because you didn't show your Power supply i already put one in and unless you had a decent machine already your going to need to "up the ante".

Processor :¡5-2500k or ¡5-3750k. Get the ¡5-2500k if your planning to overclock.

I might do some small overclocking, but nothing extreme.
