Hi everyone! I hope you guys can do the final inspections for the parts that I will order early tomorrow.
I will use the computer mostly for minor tasks (internet, work, basic gaming), but speeds for loading programs and startup are also important. I will often use the computer for simulations and medium-heavy gaming.
I will overclock the processor and may overclock the memory. I will be running Windows 7 x64.
If you see any compatibility issues, please respond ASAP! Suggestions for other options are welcome, but since I will be buying shortly, I will probably stick the following list.
well first off, the 260 is about the same price after combo deals, secondly he looks pretty set on nvidia, and thirdly nvidia and intel are more closely compatible, so its normally good to keep them together. the i5 system works well with both though. I definitely wasn't knocking your idea, both are perfectly good solutions and offer different benefits. Look here and you will also see that the 260 slightly outperforms the 4870 in the benchmarks, but its nothing major.
