Well, for $15 more than a blue you get a black... this is my point.
And yeah the motherboard is not Junk, I mis-spoke, but it's not a good companion to a $300 CPU was my point. Id use that in an HTPC build, but not as my main system. Everything you just bought relies on that 1 piece of equipment, don't skimp on the motherboard, ever.
I guess we could all pat the OP's back and say good job, but I was giving what was asked, feedback. If it were my system I would have gone a different route is all.
I'd certainly take the system or his/her hands!
Redistribution of money would have gone along way. Say an i5 instead of i7 would have allowed for more money on graphics, or motherboard, or even $15 for a 5 year warranty black hard drive. With the same real world performance, sure benchmarks are fun, but when i can play Guild wars 2 on a 2 year old system with a better frame rate what's a benchmark prove?
