ive had friends whove had z5500, and if its just for 1 room, unless u need the whole range of features the z5500 provides, its not worth it, my x540 annoys my neighbours and the distance between houses here is like 20 feet
I meant for my system. I know you mentioned, hunter, going AMD, 'cause it'll save money and be upgradable longer. Would AMD be the best for what I'm trying to build or Intel...or does it matter in this case?
If going for an i7 is going to limit the GPU you can put into the build i would get the AMD, if you are going to put the same GPU in no matter what, the i7 is stronger. The x58 chipset does have more functionality compared to the 790FX chipset but only if you can afford the price premium, it wasnt worth it to me so i got an AMD build and i am quite happy with it.
