APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this week (the closer the better))
BUDGET RANGE: 900 - 1100 After Rebates, but i hate MIR.
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: 3x+ instances of Runes of Magic gaming, low intensity video graphics.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA
PARTS PREFERENCES: Honestly willing to do either, Some of the new AMD stuff looks interesting on a budget, but will it hold up? Again focused on multi-tasking dx applications.
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, But not very much if at all. SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe
MONITOR RESOLUTION: Dual monitor setup, 1920x1200 & 1280x1024 ( Each instance will run windowed in ~ 1024x768 or less )
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like to build a PC which can succeed at running a game ( Runes of magic ) several times, 4 or 5. The quality of all but 1 instance will be low. I believe this should be feasible within my budget. What I am most concerned about is gearing towards multitasking basically.
It is hard to tell but it seems like the i7 may be my best bet? Anyways i specced this out:
@raybob95 Yes the i7 is the fastest CPU no doubt about that...but IMO you dont seem to understand what is the OP's requirements and the best suitable components for his requirements...FYI the i5 750 is faster than the Fastest Phenom II 965 3.4GHz...So its pretty fast even at stock 2.8GHz...
IMO one shouldnt waste money on things that they wouldnt take full advantage of...
