Okay, my main computer use is some gaming, the normal video watching, internet use. Im also a software developer and when I work from home is probably my most resource usage. Typically will have about 3-4 gui windows open, 2-3 IE windows, MS Word and another app or two. I have no desire to overclock or use SLI/Crossfire.
Now, I wanted to keep my budget at $1500 including monitor, but what I have is around $1700. I can certainly afford the $1700, but am wondering if its overkill for me. So my main thought where I could probably save that $200 is going with i5-750 vs i7-860, but Id love your guys opinions. Thanks in advance.
Looks great, just two notes. First, if you have no desire for an OC or Xfire, then I suggest that you get a smaller PSU as 750W is overkill. Also, OCZ has been quite cheap and right now there's a deal on with the HAF 922 case where together the case and the OCZ StealthXStream 700W is $110 after MIR. Along the same lines, if you know you aren't going to be doing Xfire then I suggest the P55A-UD3. It's basically the same, but the big difference is that there is only one PCI-E 2.0 port, which will save you around $40 or so. Other than that it looks like you've done your reading. Have fun.
