this just isn't going well. that build looks rather dumb as you won't be able to overclock the cpu with that motherboard (if you change to an unlocked cpu, get a board that supports overclocking). you don't have a set budget?

look at this topic. copy the build and get a 2500k for the cpu.

Unless I'm mistaken, a B75 motherboard is no good with an i5-2500k. I also recall that the typical suggested board for an unlocked i5 as around $135, $60 more than what TC currently has in the topic now. That coupled with an aftermarket cooler, and $10 to the unlocked sandy from locked ivy, is an additional $100 (admittedly piecewise) for TC to take full advantage of an unlocked CPU.

I could very well be wrong, but based on previous build suggestions, those were the prices I recall whenever people went to the i5-2500k route.
i3-2120 || HD 6870 || CX430 || NZXT S210E
TZ68K+ (lol) || 12GB ddr3 (lol x2) || 2x 80GB hdd (ssjlol3)

I'm not sure how good B75 motherboards are.
The case may be a bit cheap as well.

For those, however, I'm not really all that up to date, so someone else aught to have some good advice.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

close enough. a 2500k REQUIRES a board at least $45 more to become relevant and a cpu cooler (another $30 at least).

I don't think H77 overclocks either.
Z68, Z77, and I think Z75.
Also, p67 I think?

This board originally costs $125, and that is the figure you should be comparing to.
Dell XPS L501x | Intel Core i5 460M @ 2.53GHz | NVIDIA GT 420M OC @ 700/900 | 4GB 1333 RAM | 500GB 7200 RPM HDD
