Re: I could use some advice for new system.
A 2500K build for even ~$600 is going to be real tight considering the CPU itself is around $200 alone.
What other parts can you cannibalize from your last rig?
The 5900RPM hard drives will be slow, but it will also save you $75-100 up-front if you just upgrade them later.
If you have a CD/DVD drive, Windows license you can use, video card, power supply, Case, RAM, etc.. that would also help.
List any other hardware you have and we'll fill in the rest.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
