In need of advice for a new config.


Aug 15, 2011
Dear Tom's Hardware Forum!

I have spent 2 days of reading researching counter referencing my research and I came up with this as for my new PC.:

I am going to use it for.:

Starcraft 2 streaming in 720p with the game itself in 1920*1080 (my native resolution)
I am eager to play new games Battlefield 3, Diablo 3 on high graphics.

MOBO Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 £169.98
CPU Core i5-2500K £169.99
MEM G SKILL F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM £69.98
GPU 2x XFX HD-687A-ZDBC £301.64
SSD 64GB Crucial M4 £94.99
CASE Cooler Master HAF X with Coolermaster GX 750W PSU £154.99

This totals £961.57 with VAT included.

Also I have these memories in my PC at the moment.:

Cooler Master CM690 chassis with a 600W Xilence XP600 PSU
2x Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9DHX
2x Crucial CT25664BA1339

Could I use these component until I find the money for the other component above in the config?
Am I spending too much money on something which is overkill?
My motherboard selection is to be future proof. Any thoughts on that?

Thank you very much for your time and answers, please note that this is my first post. If this is not in the right place or format is wrong please let me know.
