What is your budget? Are you going to be doing something else other then play GTA IV and are you going to play other games as well?

*Currently under modification*


$329.99 Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K




Because of the recent issues with the new Intel CPUs, they can't be bought till around March or so. If you are really desperate you could go with the older i5 and i7 CPUs, but they don't perform as well as the new i7 and i5. Assuming the price of the motherboard and CPU remain the same after they are put back onto the market, this build would equal to about $1500 including shipping.


Optionally, I would spend another 20 dollars and add two red LED fans to add to the side of the case for better airflow to the GTX 580
