I am building my first new build and would like your opinions and thoughts. My main uses for it are gaming and media, i would value any input and any potential money saves. I will be overclocking the cpu and also the gpu a bit, the ram i will be leaving alone. My main enquiry is regards to any bottlenecking, overkill or incompatibilty that i have missed.
cheers jimmuh, i have been going between the 2 cpus? The online gaming world seems to be split on which one is better, i originally thought the 3570 would be better but got swarmed on another thread telling me the 2500k was a thoroughbred gaming chip and then swayed to that? The difference money wise is sweeties so may go for the more recent gen 3570.
don't need monitor as it will be connected to 1080 tv, yeah gonna get windows 7 64bit as a birthday gift in waiting. Budget is about £1000 including fans, fan controller, case and cpu cooler which comes to £200. Therefore everything else is about £800 for the budget.
