How does this look for a $700 build?
sounds fair enough to me
if your not an overclocker then i5-2400 is perfect
for memory you can also think of this deal
Looks good ..i personally don't like Biostar or Hitachi But thats do to old tech so Im not sure now
That's a techpowerup recommend motherboard you are talking about!
BIOSTAR TZ68A+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s ...
Biostar has come a long way lately.
Hitachi is just WD.
v12dock, you can get a NZXT Source 210 for the same price as that rosewill.
ouch, Actually i dont care for WD ether
Looks good, I would beg, borrow or steal for a little extra and get the 2500k. Simply because of the free performance you can get with a simple multi change. Even if its only a simple 500mhz or so. Any of the i5 chips are great though.
Looks pretty good. Try saving a few bucks by getting a single 4GB stick of RAM, like this one: AMD Entertainment Edition 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM D...
You can also switch over to this Rosewill PSU: Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W Continuous @4...
And this DVD burner: SAMSUNG Black 16X DVD-ROM 40X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM ...
That saves you about $20. Take that $20 and buy a Core i5 2500K from NCIX.com for $200 here: http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=57962&vpn=BX80623I52500K
If you don't plan to OC, since you picked up the 2400, you can go with a H67 board and put the rest of the money towards a 6870.
I rather use a WD/Hitachi over a crappy Seagate /Samsung any day.
Another PSU option over the Rosewill.
COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-550-PCAR-E3 55...
I'd rather have an Antec/Seasonic/Corsair most of the time.
I swapped the 2400 to 2500k
If you haven't taken my suggestions above and decided to just spend more money, you can still do what I say and get a cheap heatsink for the 2500K. These things will hit 4.2-4.5GHz like nothing with a half decent heatsink.
NVM I guess the person already bought a computer?
Can mod please close thread
