i5 combo Motherboard recommendations

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I am trying to build another computer for my friend. Last one I build for him was last year and I am kinda out of my loop on these intel CPUs.

 

During a short search, I think I am going with a i5 2500k cpu along with a Asus P8P67 combo.

 

But I am not sure if there is good/bad thing with this.

 

Any other recommendations?

ASUS P8Z68-V LX INTEL Z68 LGA1155 MOTHERBOARD

 

INTEL CORE I5-2320 SANDY BRIDGE 3.0GHZ LGA 1155 6M

 

Most are client machines w/ dual or trip monitors utilizing Crucial SSD's from 64 to 256Gb. 8 Gb Ram to start. RAM is stupid cheap right now too. I got 30 sets of 2x4's for < $30 each!

 

Building 33 of these for two different clients, after much research. Office looks like a CDW warehouse right now :shock:

Dang Michael, 33 of these lol. Hope you don't get bad rams. :p

 

Thanks for the advise. He's just using it for light gaming, but doesn't want to build something too cheap either.

 

He's also only running 1 monitor too and does not want more.....

 

Already got some rams from amazon the other day for $36 shipped.... just waiting for other deals.

 

How many watts of power supply do you think I need to run 1 GPU card? 550w?
