    That is a very good computer, you would have to put windows on yourself though

      Overclocking is a good thing
      Aria will try there bestest to make it stable as well

      That rig is good if you want someone to put it together for you and you don't know what you want. People will probably post suggestions of hardware here and you could get aria to make it for you if you want! 2600K ain't all that necessary for gaming, with a lot of people opting for a 2500k (me included!).

        yh thx wud you have a choice if u want to overclock or not? because i might consider not overclocking since im seeng all these troubles and stuff ppl are having. also do u know the diff between a normal CPU compared to an overclocked one? like will there be a big performance change?

        again thx and sorry for all the questions.. its just that i need the right information so im confident of buying this system

        best regards,

        edit: hey msparsons. why 2500K not 2600? is a 2500K better than a 2600K?

          Pretty much only advantage of 2600k is hyperthreading, which not many programs utilise. 2500k is more than enough for gaming and could save you a lil

          If you are really scared of overclocking you would probably get a 2500. It's only a little bit cheaper than the 2500k and you are missing out on a fair bit of cheap performance. Aria shouldn't damage anything with the overclock, so you can just remove it if you would feel more comfortable or you are having issues.

          This might be more apropriate, but it depends if you want to do things other than gaming (Think getting aria to make it for you is 50)

            o ok. thx a lot for the information. even if i do buy this sytem, would it hurt if i do other things and game at the same time? or is a 2500k simply a bit better than 2600k? if so i might consider going with your build but ill tweak it a little

              Truth be told the 2600k is the better cpu. It's clocked faster and has hyperthreading. The trouble is, for the extra cash it's just not worth it for 90% of builds unless they have specific apps installed that will take advantage of hyperthreading (3D design stuff mostly).

              The money saved by dropping down to the 2500k would be much better spent on a better gpu or ssd

              The system above is indeed a very good system. If you spec and build yourself you could probably get a slightly better spec rig, but with the above system you're getting it pre-built, pre-overclocked, stress tested and guaranteed

              The choice is yours really

                    Looks like you gotta get somethin else :/

                    Alternatively if you really wanted that build, buy all the components and let aria make it (don't bother with aftermarket cooler if you don't want the overclock)

                      i thought i would have to come to this well heres my build so far

                      Gaming PC 1 https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/_hRZrbknzIU0K7t1g6tKag,, (i7 with 1GB GPU)

                      Gaming PC 2 https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/WFdGpQ9VSmOVSu0wPqnb-w,, (i5 with 1.28GB GPU)

                      i was thinking of adding an extra 4GB ram maybe. is it possible or would it slow down my PC ?

                        Are you never going to overclock? If not then I would get a 2500 and not bother with the extra cooler (CPU comes with one). Alternatively get the 2500k and then at any point you can add a overclock and cooler for some extra performance! :S 560Ti is a great performance/price gpu. I would suggest 8gb of RAM and a 60/64gb SSD. If you plan to do much else apart from gaming then say, as it will change things!

                          2500k with the 570 should beat the 2600k with 560Ti when it comes to games

                            Nearly 1k including OS and it has a single GPU, albeit one that isn't suitable for a 1k price tag.
