    Was looking at the new ivy brdige, but i see they say no real benifits from the i5-2500k. But there is always a sucker out there that will buy my rig.

    If you have the 2500K, then its not worth it at all. But my Q9400 is getting on in the years and needs replacing.

    Maybe it will help me aim better in BF3

    Talking of which. I will be on nice and early practicing on our server, we need small scale practice for tonights match not massive 64p action.

    You Vaalies are so funny

    It's that they are on every corner. Nearly as bad as the ones trying to give you free passport holders or lighters.

    Didn't see him last night but I see he was raking up the kills 6 hours ago

    ok well I hope he is sorted for tonight,

    right back to the PC issue.

    low budget so here goes:

    Foxconn H61mxl LGA 1155 board R349.00 special
    core I5 2500k R1659.00 NOT SURE IF THIS IS WORTH IT ON THAT BOARD
    2x DDR 1333 4 gb R338.00
    1tb HDD R799.00 still running 2 x 80gig hdd in old rig
    R3145.00

    Not a 100% sure if the case will work otherwise throw in R300.00 for a Tin can

    psu is a 500 watt, about a year old and gfx is ati 5570 club so that will do.

    Right gents let's hear it, what good/bad with this or should I just go play on my psp hehehe

    Remember all the prices you see at Esquire are ex vat

    Looks good. Getting a cheaper mobo now is OK, you can always get a z77 later on when the prices drop and you need to OC.

    CPU is good. If you dont intend to OC then you can go with a non K version but long term with a nicer mobo you can OC that 2500K to 4.5ghz or more easy and it'll save you from upgrading so soon.

    mem is good. Also have a look at Takealot for some duel sets. here is a good set

    just make sure if you going to be using that 1tb as a boot drive that its a 7200rpm drive.

    Im sure that case will work. That mobo is small

    I see the SWU guys also want to schedule the match next week, possibly Thursday at 8pm.

    They better watch out as I'm going to be packing Ivy Bridge power for that match

    I'd really avoid Foxcon to be honest. Never liked their boards.

    Generally i only buy Asus for myself. I have heard Asrock is also not bad. I tend to stay away from Gigabyte. Maybe because years ago the performance of the boards was not great.

    Nice thing with some of the new Asus boards is Anti-surge Protection built in plus 3yr warranty and lightning strike warranty included. I had my old 500w surge and the board rebooted and told me that the protection had kicked in. So glad, only had the board for 2 months.
