Exclamation I give up! Build my PC for me and the best one Ill buy

Yah I figured I can't make up my own damn mind about what to buy for my new rig, so Ill have you guys do it for me, and ill decide which is the best and ill buy that one.

What I am looking for

1. Gaming and everyday use.

2. Price Range 2200-2500$

3. Ill be buying my computer in BC Canada.

4. I want a 1155 mobo and Nvidia GPU, other than that, not to picky what goes into my case, once they are good reliable parts. The tower has to be sexy, and runs cool. I am not to picky about noise, but I do want to run a lot of blue lights hahaha So I would like a mobo to match that scheme.

5. Maybe a bit of OC but nothing extreme, I saw on the i7 their "k" processors are easy to OC or easier.

6. I plan to build it this month

7. 19201080 resolution, maybe Higher?

8. It will be a completely scratch build, nothing from my current PC.

Yah I need help, I have read hours and hours of reviews, on every single product I thought would be good. Pluses and minuses, but I just can't pick parts, specifically mobo and case.

Please for the love of god help me, I been trying to buy a new PC for 3 months -.-" and I can't decide on anything lol

Thanks

easy. 2500k for cpu,make sure its the k.
or if you fold,2600k. again,make srue its got a k there,mkay?

and for mobo..p67 b3 as they matured a bit or try a z68 so you can eventually use the on board if mains fails?

one 580 because the budget allows

seasonic 650 and up for single gpu

case wise, i cant decide for ya

ak may suggest the c300 or such ssd for os, id say add a 2tb green wd for storage

8 gis of your favourite ram

hr-02 for cooler.

Antec 900 looks cool and has plenty of blue and plenty of cooling. For 1920x1080 you might want to try also a LCD TV. If you are looking for regular monitors the Asus VW246H, 2ms refresh rate 1920x1080, highly rated. The TV as monitor is nice if you stay on the couch and watch it from quite close, for example I am looking on a 32" from 3 feet away other wise it would be pretty difficult. I also have a 50" DLP TV, that is 10 feet away from the eyes, amazing for Blu-rays.

Are you willing to wait for AMD's new lineup?

Corsair 650D

Asus LGA1155 board (ZX-68)

i5 2500k

Corsair H60

Corsair vengeance 8gb

750w PSU

then whatever else you desire for your fans, drive, monitor, mice & keyboard.

Here is what I would go with.

2600k - $330
ASUS P8Z68-V Pro - $210
Mushkin Stiletto 8GB - $60
Corsair TX850 V2 850W - $135
GTX 580 (brand of your choice) - $525
Kingston V100 64GB - $90
Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB - $170
Corsair A50 or similar CPU cooler - $60
DVD drive - $25
W7 Prem x64 - $120
Case of your choice - ~$150 for a good one
Keyboard and mouse of your choice - ~$100
120mm fans - $25

Puts you at $2000 before tax and shipping. If you need a monitor there is budget left for that.

excellent list, for the GTX 580, get an MSI, ASUS or one with those 2 bif fans on the side, my ASUS ENGTX580 is folding on auto setting at 49'C right now.


Newegg.ca - ASUS ENGTX580 DCII/2DIS/1536MD5 GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

+1 for Eldonko's build. The one I was going to post was almost identical. But use shopbot.ca for price checking/matching, I picked up a 2600K for $300 last week.

Yeah my pricing is just ballpark. If you order from ncix and price match everything you should be able to knock off $100 or so. The reason I chose that board and HD combo is for caching. Setup the v100 as a caching HD and run your OS from a partition on the xt and you will have a super fast system.
