So after considering upgrading my current system (which I have learnt is just not worth it) I am working on getting together a new build. Am I heading in the right direction?
Intel DH67CL B3 Motherboard - OEM
LGA1155, H67 (B3 Stepping), 4xDDR3-1333, 1xPCI-Ex16 v2.0, 2xSATA-III, 3xSATA-II, 1xeSATA-II, RAID, 1xGigLAN, 8Chl-HD, DVI, HDMI, USB3.0, ATX (here
CoolerMaster Centurion 5 II Midi-Tower Case - 500W PSU, Black
2xUSB2.0, 1xeSATA, 1xHD-Audio, 1x140mm Blue LED Fan, 1x120mm Fan, ATX (this one is local so don't have a link)
1000GB 7200rpm Serial ATA-III-6Gb/s HDD (here
EVGA GeForce GTX560 Ti - 1GB GDDR5 - (850MHz, 4104MHz)
256-bit, 2xDVI, 1xMini-HDMI, PCI-Ex16 v2.0, Fansink (here
8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-10600 1333MHz DDR3 RAM - 9-9-9-24
I have a few questions... when choosing the ram, what is the difference between a 8gb 1333MHz or 8 gb 1600MHz? Will it make a huge difference?
Next question is the CPU. I was thinking of going this:
Core i5 2500 Quad Core (3.30GHz - 3.70GHz Turbo, 850-1100MHz GPU) - LGA1155, 5.0 GT/s DMI, 6MB Cache, 32nm, 95W
But I need some help in understanding what they are all about, I get the difference between a dual & quad core but that is about as far as my understanding goes.
I'm really trying to understand all this, so hopefully I've done ok ;P
