ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: well, the budget is in $$$ but i'm converting it to local currency (about 3.5*)
this will be my work staion only, maybe some web but no games no nothing, it needs to last for the next 4 years or so...
i'm on really short budget
and these are the specs i was thinking of:
Intel Core i7-860 Tray
If this is going to last 4 years, I would go with the GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3P http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It has USB 3 ports that are going to become very useful.
You would want to use the Xtreme Memory Profile to get the 1600 memory to work with this board at full speed.
