My System Specs

Default

thanks for all the replies fellas. really appreciate them.

Unfortunately, the bundle Intel Core™ i5-2500K Processor Bundle w/ Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 Motherboard for $364.99 is no longer available so i may have to change it to the Asus P8Z68-V PRO for $399 or the ASUS P8P67 Pro REV3.1 ATX P67 LGA1155 DDR3 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI Sandy Bridge B3 Motherboard which is probably about 10-20 dollars cheaper. Is the upgrade from P67 to Z68 boards worth the extra dollars? cause i read somewhere that in some circumstances, the Asus P67 actually performs better than the Z68.

Before i go on any further, i should probably also note that i will not be doin any tweaking/overclocking unless its only with a push of a button which i understand some boards allow. As for the SSD caching, i dont think i'll be using it that much either.

I also will be using the Corsair A50 which i bought a few months ago for a build that never happened.

thanks for reading guys (and ladies if there happens to be any)
