Hi, this will be my first build from scratch and I'm hoping not to bork anything up too bad.. I am looking to spend less than 2000 total including the LCD (1600X1200 min). My general use is somewhat desktop multitasking heavy; running a large spreadsheet, Itunes, a database program, 3-4 tables of online poker and 1-3 other things(may add a TV card later). I would like to play FPS games fairly well too.
Still wondering whether to go ahead and get the X2 or to get a single-core that would be cheaper and better for gaming. Does the X2 really help a ton in desktop multitask use? Also still in the air a bit about the PSU/CASE.
