    I Have replaced the the i5 with an i7-3770K
  10. sorry for late reply. thanks for comments though. i'll buy the pc tommorow. hust a follow up question.

    what if i use gtx vid cards?
    what if i use fx 8350?
  11. Hey idk if this post is dead at all yet, but with the introduction of haswell-E it is possible to make an i7 6 core computer at 1k, you jsut have to be willing to give up high end graphics, which by what youve stated before, is not the biggest issue.
