Im looking for a decent motherboard, ram & CPU bundle.... The CPU would probably be an i5 2500K. ram has to be good as well. Looking to pay around £300 - £350

My i5 2500k is en route along with 8GB of Corsair 1600MHz DDR3 Vengeance Memory and an Asus P8Z68-V LX Motherboard. I already have a Corsair ForceGT 120 SDD.

YOU WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No way mate, you goto OC the chip, 4.0 easy with the intel heatsink but for £25 quid >> Click here for link<<

Here is the link to the best OC guide which I use. You can get 4.6 with little effort. I get 15fps more by OC the chip.

Nice rig you will have peter ...yeah defo OC it to at least 4ghz..with a reasonable heatsink as heatsinks aren't much ...do buy decent paste like arctic silver as thermal efficiency is far better...and at 4ghz oc which would be easy you would see at least 10 fps more in games ...Let us know how you get on with your build etc peter ...
