grr wrote an essay and my intenret took a dump beforw it finished posting.

basically theres no noticeable difference between the 2, and any gains one has over the ither will be undone as you have an aftermarket gpu.

dont max out the ram.. your cpu will take a dump wayyyyy before it can utilise even half of the 16gb you plan.

instead get a small ssd. say 128gb. it will speed thinga up 10 fold and make you think you have a $400 cpu!!

A friend was looking at the water cooling build I have going and got very excited about it. Now he wants a water cooled box and insists it be Intel based. No real budget constraints but don't want to go hog wild either. Most of my build experience is with AMD although I have built a few i5's. ...
