Hey Guys,

After 3 days of staring and comparing components on the internet i've came up with this build:
Intel Core I5 2500K
Asus - P8P67
VGA MSI Geforce GTX570 1280MB Power Edition OC
G.SKILL 8GB (2X4) DDR3 1600 CL9 F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
CORSAIR PSU 650W En thusiast Series TX
and the NZXT Phantom case

Will this do the trick for now? Or is there any better options?

Ps. I can get all these parts for roughly 900 euro's

Thanks,

Jeff

Will you be gaming or more for professional use.

Will you be overclocking. If you are you may want to consider an aftermarket cooler for CPU.


All around it seems like a good build and should be able to float everything you can throw at it for at least a year or two.


I have a suggestion though.

If you're not a complete Intel fan and are planning on hi-def gaming I would suggest the Radeon 6970. The ASUS EAH6970 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5 Graphics adapter seems like a good one for the money. It is said to be better at 1080p gaming and is quit a bit cheaper.

If you buy a Radeon 6970. you could probably put the money into an Ssd or something. :p

Dude that case looks awesome.

also you may wanna go with a higher rated power supply so that down the road you can throw another video card on and maybe do some overclocking.

The power supply size is fine for your current build if you do not plan on upgrading it that much in the future. But if you plan on upgrading your computer with dual graphics cards SLI in the future then I agree with nagol567 (^)

I think overclocking should be fine with a 750w.

But don't take our advice on the power supply. Check Intel wattage requirements for dual sli graphics cards if you plan on doing that in the future.
