I was going to go on to say that but accidently hit the post button. I want this build for gaming at 1080p on my 22" HDTV. Here is the rest of the components:

Intel LGA1155 Core i5 2500K, 4-Core CPU 3.3 GHz, 6Mb Smart Cache, 95W.
Asus P8H67-M LE Motherboard
Asus Lion Square Ultimate cooling fan
4 GB Kingston DDR3 1333Mhz Ram. £239.99


Antec Three Hundred Two Case £61.52

Corsair GS600W Power Supply £60.28

500GB Sata Hard Drive £30

Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 £130.81

Logitech G9X MW3 Mouse £49.55

I want to know if the power supply will have enough cables and if that motherboard is good enough for gaming purposes? I am planning to upgrade this build every two years, just I need everything to start it off!

Thanks! :)

Nowadays I usualy suggest going the 2x 4gb route since rams are so cheap.
April 6, 2012 3:10:44 PM

The reason I am going with that is because it is in a bundle deal with the processor and motherboard, currently I dont like the Micro ATX mobo, and would prefer a ATX one. I will upgrade to 8GB in the future

Basically I want to know whats a good reliable mobo for the i5 processor? Thats my main concern along with the power supply,

Asrock z68 pro3 gen3
