After looking at the list of games coming out in the next year I'm thinking I want/need a new PC. My current isn't looking like its going to have the power I want. I've thrown together a prelimanry build mostly based off the Techspots PC buying guides, but would like a second or third opinion. I'm planning on using this build in the near future, along with 2 of my friends would be using the same or very similar build. Last time I did a PC build for myself I spent about 6 months researching it, but well I just don't have the time to do that now . So I'm hoping to leach from others experience . So here is the build: CPU - $209.99 Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz I really have no plans for OC so I don't really see the point in buying the "K" version. Case - $59.99 COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case I'm not dead set on this case, just pulled it from the budget build. My last case was an Antec 300 Illusion which worked very well, but I'm not very happy with the fans that came with it. They didn't last as long as I thought they should. Mobo - $149.99 ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard This (and the gpu) is where I think I need the most help. There is just so many choices of Mobo I always have a hard time picking one. If I don't plan on OC do I need the P67 or would the H67 work just fine? Is there a more cost effective choice here? Graphics Card - $169.99 XFX Double D HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 Again another spot where I feel I need a lot of help. Just so many damn choices. PSU - $89.99 CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W Swiped straight from the enthusiastic's build. Looks like it should have enough power and then some. RAM - $46.99 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL With the price on DDR3 RAM being so low, I went for the 8 gigs. Plan on running Win7 64bit on this. TOTAL: ~$750 No HDD listed due to the high price right now and I have one from another computer I can use. Seriously thought about a good SDD, maybe if I can wiggle ~$100 out of the other parts I could go for it. Right now I'm at about the top of my budget tho. Thanks!
