ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Looking for a very strong single graphics card, no crossfire or SLI, please. Looking for a fan controller. 64 bit vista. I need a wireless card compatible with 64 bit vista. Also want a tv tuner. Would like to have room for a sound card for sometime in the future.
Would an i7 really be that much better for my needs? Im not going to be doing any heavy compiling, just a little. Also, i should have been more clear on the tv tuner, I just wanted something with composite and s-video input, so I can record xbox gameplay, would AVerMedia AVerTVHD work?
