http://www.newegg.co...essors-Desktops That is a better option for the 2500k its a newer ivy bridge version that is better and newer for like 10 bucks more. If you are a gamer i do not recommend amd to be honest as even the cheaper i3 2100 (sandy bridge) and the i3 3220 (ivy bridge) beat almost all of amds line ups in performance around gaming. Plus intel cpus right now have the best single threaded cpus. And i do not see an operating system so do you need windows?
