Default Re: More parts for Core i5

Regarding the mobos get the Gigabit one, it will allow you to run two GPU cards at 8x.
I would get this PSU so I could get a second GPU later on OCZ700MXSP-UK OCZ ModXStream Pro 700w Silent SLI Ready ATX2 Modular Power Supply The ModXStream Pro Series is the superlative solution for driving today's gaming systems and is both SLI & Crossfire compatible. : novatech.co.uk
Regarding the RAM get these ones F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM G.Skill Ripjaw 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C7 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit 1600MHz RAM Speed, CAS 7-8-7-24 Timings, 1.6-1.65v VDIMM, Supports Intel i5 processors, Lifetime Warranty with G.Skill. : novatech.co.uk
Regarding the GPU try to find this one: Newegg.com - ASUS EAH5850&#47;G&#47;2DIS&#47;1GD5 Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w&#47;ATI Eyefinity - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards Couldn't find it in the site you gave us.

This will cost 522 which will get you 78/120 for case and Optical Driver.

oh that sounds nice though, but do you have any in mind about the case that can decrease the heat (aluminum is the one right) but i don't know which is more suitable.

Sorry, don't know how but I read it Gigabit.
Get this one: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD4P LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards it will support two cards. If you're planning to run only one card then you can choose the asus you've posted.

i'd stay away from the MSI. Toms hardware blew some of the voltage regulator components on a similar MSI board.

The Perils Of Overclocking - Review Tom's Hardware : P55 On A Budget: Five Core i5/i7 Motherboards For $100-$150

also see here,

AnandTech: P55 Extreme Overclockers: Check your sockets!

get a gigabyte or EVGA board, as those are have the lotes designed socket. not the foxconn socket that is prone to failure.
