Im about to order a couple things... Im in panama so shipping is kinda expensive... It put my budget up to 400-500 on the items i pick.
Im ordering a i5-2400 im not going to OC is the default fan good enough?
I have no clue what mobo to pick... I have a 9600gt.. Ill upgrade soon but not now...
I need ram too
I have a 750w psu ill upgrade that too but not now...
Id like a mobo that can stay with me for a while...
Do i need paste to assamble the cpu? If so add it up please
Im desperate dunno what to do... If i buy everything here its way expensive... If i order a pc from cyberpower pc i go way overbudget... I need a mobo for the i5 and ram.. Ill buy my case here since its cheaper... I have dvdrom to salvage since my old pc was a dell... Nothing else might work...

I plan to use it for gaming and streaming... Having some programs open while i do that...
Well first off, what brand is your PSU? It might be able to be salvaged for your current rig, I just hope it's a reputable brand.

An i5-2400 will do great for any task you throw at it overclocked or not, so you won't have to worry. If you get the Retail version of the i5, not the OEM, then it'll come with a Heatsink+Fan assembly with thermal compound already applied, so you won't have to worry.

As for your graphics card, it'll certainly do fine until you upgrade later on.

Have fun and good luck!
