Hello ive just upgraded to an i5 from an old Q6600. I had to do the build on a budget as I'm also saving to buy a house with the wench. its a mix of bits off the old pc, some new used bits, and some new new bits. I would have liked an SSD to use as a boot drive but my funding run out! maybe in a few years ... The pc is used primarily for music production and a little gaming. Specs are:
Intel i5 4570 Asrock H87 pro4 corsair ddr3 1600 - 32gb Sapphire 6870 Corsair TX650 PSU Zalman Z9 case WD caviar black 500GB HDD - OS & Programs Samsung 80GB HDD - project files Hitachi 320GB HDD - Sample library
will be buying a coolermaster 212 evo on payday to replace the stock cooler And if i had more cash I would have opted for a 4670k but i got the 4570 at a decent price thanks to http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/
and if anyones wondering why i have 32gb of ram and no ssd its because amazon dropped the price so i just grabbed it!
