How about motherboard i paying to much for one or is that about right? And any preference on the video card? Austindb95 November 29, 2012 12:30:07 AM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... didnt notice the one i linked did not have a "K" would this be better? TheBigTroll November 29, 2012 12:33:51 AM k would mean overclocking. without the k would mean no overclocking. if you are not to be overclocking this rig, id suggest getting a different motherboard Austindb95 November 29, 2012 12:38:29 AM It wont hurt performence if I do not over clock with this board dose it? I want to have the option but if i never do, I do not want it to back fire TheBigTroll November 29, 2012 12:41:23 AM its just saving money thats about it. if you are going to buy a k chip without overclocking, it would mean 40 dollars wasted on the CPU and another 20-40 on the motherboard Austindb95 November 29, 2012 12:46:38 AM Ill just stick with this so i have the option thanks for the help! No last opinions on the video card? Austindb95 November 29, 2012 12:54:22 AM Quck question (i know socket change) but is this: http://ark.intel.com/products/43556/Intel-Core-i5-670-P... Prossesor better than the one im getting? TheBigTroll November 29, 2012 1:47:45 AM just change the CPU to a i5 of some sort. no i7s and no, the i5 670 wont perform as well. its 3 generations old from what i know Austindb95 November 29, 2012 2:20:31 AM Alright thanks again!
