    The Final Build

    This is the last thread i will be making about my pc, it is just to confirm that all the parts are compatible with one another

    CPU - Intel Core i5 2500
    Cooler - Corsair H60 Water Cooler or Thermaltake Frio (this one is £20 cheaper, i dont really intend to be Ocing, but i have heard that if i was to go with the i5 2500k it is really easy with a decent cooler ? the 2500k is like an extra £10 so im not sure)
    OS - Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    MOBO - P8Z68-V LX
    RAM - 8.0GB Corsair 1600mhz Vengeance (2x 4GB) or 8.0GB Corsair DDR3 1600mhz XMS3 (4x 2GB) Whats the difference ? they are both the same price so... ? i have no intensions of OCing just yet).
    Hard Drive - 500GB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
    Graphics Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB
    Case - Xigmatek Asgard (Is this case ok to handle all the parts as im not too sure, i could go with one like this which looks to be better Zalman Z9 Plus but it is £20 more but if it is not nesescarry then its pointless)
    PSU - 650W Corsair TX Ultra-Quiet

    So as i mentioned after posting a number of threads i have finally come to a conclusion of what i am getting with just some questions above. Thankyou
    Incase your interested in the price it comes to £820 and they will be making it for me.

    - If you don't plan to OC at all you can skip the aftermarket heatsink. The stock cooler is enough for even small overclocks (to around 4.0-4.2Ghz depending on ambient temp. and chip).
    - Link to the specific RAM modules would help. Difference might be CAS latency, voltage, heatsink, etc. Ideally you want 1.5V 1600Mhz modules. Timings can differ in preference, but I believe 9-9-9-24 is a pretty decent standard.
    - What HDD is that? Maker and Model?
    - Again, what maker and model on the 560 Ti?
    - The case is "just" fine; the Asgard II is what you should get though. It is very budget though, so ideally you should get something a bit better. Check here:
    - That PSU is a bit overkill for the intended build. You can easily step down to a 500-550W and save some cash.
