    Looks really solid to me, didn't get into the motherboard specs, but if you're into overclocking I've heard awesome things about the 2500K

        me personally I would bump up the wattage on the PSU....future proof it a bit more. Other than that it's a real solid build. Nice case choice as well

          You might as well go for the 750W. Big enough bump if you ever decide to buy another monster card down the road.

            The P8P67 LE board doesn't have USB 3, and I don't think it allow for crossfire/SLI.

            The ASUS P8P67-M PRO should offer those features and at a very similar price.

              You might consider a decent aftermarket CPU cooler. Other than that, it looks great!

                500GB is a bit small for the HDD. You can pick up the 1TB Spinpoint for not much more.

                  Just FWIW, my 2500K runs overclocked at 4.2Ghz on the stock cooler. Perfectly stable. I'd only use aftermarket cooling if it's running too hot after overclocking it.

                  Your build looks pretty good Kwalc.

                    Yes, but I would advise anyone to move away from the stock cooler as they are terrible for dissipating heat. Even the Coolermaster 212 at ~$25 will prove to be much better and allow him to overclock easily to ~4.6-4.8Ghz without worry. My Silver Arrow allows me to keep my [email protected] with staying under 70C on load and that's with hyperthreading which creates more heat.

                      Had the Fatlity headphones for a year. They were uncomfortable and the sound was okay at best.

                      I'm now using a Razor product which I like very much. They are a little bit more money but considering how often and how long they are used it's money well spent.

                        For that price I'd pick up the Sennheiser 555s or the AT AD700s, which are an overall better headphone in all areas compared to anything that creative, logitech, or razer has to offer. Most "gaming" headphones are gimmicky and you usually never get what you pay for.

                          It's what I need atm. I have a 2 TB external HDD, so it's more than what I personally would ever use.

                          I'm going for fatality because it's decent and very cheap. I dont want to spend too much money on things I could get for less. but thanks for the suggestion:)

                            Well, there are still cheaper alternatives to Creative that are better. JVC, cheaper Sennheiser's are just to name a couple. But some actually like to own things that have "gaming" in their title, and if that's you then by all means buy what you'll be happy with in the end.

                            I just searched those up in about 15 seconds, but those are all better choices than any Creative headphones. Just get a clip-on cord mic to go with it.

                              Agreed. As cool as these new chips are, they are still heat producers especially when OC'd. In anything but a cold/cool room, your processor's going to be overheating on those heavy gaming sessions if you're on the stock cooler.

                              That's what I said when I first built this rig and put in a 320 GB HDD. At the time I barely filled my previous 120 GB one. Fast forward to 1.5 years later and my 320 GB is barely enough to hold my games let alone tons of other development software. At this point, I'm tempted to replace my aging 320 GB with a 1 TB at least. Just games and software would easily eat half that space in a heartbeat.

                              The 2 TB external is best used as a storage drive rather than a main use drive. That way it doesn't wear out as fast as those externals are usually 5400/5900 RPM so they don't offer the same level of performance a typical 7200 rpm drive does.
