Processor - Intel i5 2500
Motherboard - Gigabyte P67A-UD4 (purely so I can have crossfire and SLI support)
RAM - Corsair CMP4GX3M2A 1600C9 4GB. I put the part number in as this is listed as AMD and I am not sure if it works with Sandy Bridge. It is a dual channel kit. (Please advise)
All this including shipping for $553 which I think is pretty good. The Intel 2500 would be sufficient as I don't plan on going over 4.1ghz.
let me know about the RAM please guys.
from what i understand you cant overclock the 2500, u need a 2500K
ram wise, no idea still not really aware of everything
