Cool!

You talked a bit about the i5-2500k, well, here is a pack also from the same website.
  • Intel® Core™ i5-2500K Processor, Socket-LGA1155, Quad Core, 3.3Ghz, 6MB, 95W, Boxed w/fan
  • ASUS P8Z68-V PRO, Socket-1155, ATX, Z68, DDR3, 3xPCIe(2.0)x16, CFX&SLI, SATA 6Gb/s,USB3.0,FW, VGA,DVI,HDMI, EFI
  • Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 8GB, Kit w/2X HyperX 4GB DDR3, CL9-9-9-27, 240pin

Dollars: 553
Pounds: 351

I really do trust ASUS mobo's.

How's that?
That looks like a very good deal. Sandy Bridge CPU's are great as is the motherboard and memory. That looks perfect unless you can find an upgrade pack with an i7-2600k?

Could you by any chance link this site that sells upgrade packs? We might be able to be more useful if we can choose one from the actual site.

Thanks for all your comments guys.

Yes, i'll put it up. But it's in danish!

Komplett.dk

There is an i7, but the price is quite juicy. The price it says is in DKK, so you can just convert that or either ask me.

I just spoke with the webside support, and they say that they won't have the i7 set back.

For now, this is my target..

Hmmm.... The i5-2600k looks a lot better. It's the new Sandy Bridge which is also a better overclocker. On top of this, the P8Z68-V Pro is quite a good board that comes with the new and improved Z68 chipset. The Kingston RAM is also faster than the Crucial sticks. The P8Z68-V Pro is also socket 1155 which the upcoming Ivy Bridge boards are going to be which should give you a better chance to upgrade.

I cannot wait that long for Ivy Bridge at the moment, all the games will be out before the Ivy Bridge release.

I'm going to buy the upgrade-pack today I think.

Anything you wanna say before I click 'buy now'?

Thanks for all your great support.

What about Sandy Bridge? It's available now (i2500k and i2600k) and is an improvement over the i5-760.

The i5 series is running Sandy Bridge, ain't they? It's also the i5-2500k I want to buy.

Btw, my brother claims that the last performance part is laying in the Graphic Card. I have a GTX 260, and a GTX 280. He says that the technology is weak, and should be changed to something like a GTX 560. What's your guys opinion?

Well, you had me confused.

I thought in your post 13 you said you were going after the i5-760, when you stated "for now, this is my target..........".

Well, now that that's cleared up... The i5-2500k is a great CPU. What I was saying earlier is that if you want to upgrade to Ivy Bridge, you can because the motherboard in the i5-2500k pack has the same socket as IB.

Okay, now let's talk about the graphics. The GPU is pretty much what your computer uses for gaming. Take a look at the benchmarks below, the GTX 280 comes in at 39th. If you were to go with a GTX 560, the 16th, you would get a significant boost in performance in your gaming.
