    hi there, so ive gotten sick of my crappy little can i got now and decided to get a better one now that i have a steady income of cash

    im not looking for something too expensive
    heres what im thinking of right now

    Case: Cooler Master Gladiator 600 600W

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4

    Power supply: included in the case

    CPU: Intel Core i5 2310 2,9GHz Socket 1155,
    im thinking of overclocking the cpu with 10% or more, but then i need a better cpu fan any suggestions are welcome as long as theyr not to expensive

    Grafic card: something in the 500 series currently got a 440 and its not good enough thinking of this one:
    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC HDMI Dual-DVI 1GB 2 of theese

    RAM: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL9 2x4GB

    not sure if i missed something, but let me know if something wont fit with that and so on:p

    my budget for this pc is 10000 swedish krona, so far im up in 7345

    also this is a gaming pc

    The motherboard and CPU don't go together, so you need to change one of them. This Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 motherboard supports the CPU: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3759#

    A 600W power supply may be marginal, especially if you are going to overclock, but depends a lot on quality of the power supply. Look for power supplies made by Seasonic, Zippy, FSP or Enermax.

    Frank4d, you are the first person I've seen list Zippy PSU's in a long time. They were the best PSU's built, but the last time I looked at their site which was quite awhile ago, they didn't have too many available for desktop PC's.

    Those should be fine if the motherboard is the GA-P67A-UD4-B3 I suggested, or another that supports Intel Core i5 2500K.
