I've made up my mind, I'd rather go slightly more expensive for a system that will last and be pretty decent for a pretty long time, rather than keeping it pretty cheap and wanting to upgrade again in a year (like with the computer I have now)
From what I've read, the i5-750 is a great gaming CPU, so I am wanting to go with that (unless there is better for a good price).
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Possibly today?
BUDGET RANGE: As close to $1000 as possible, but really no limit
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (MMO's and such), Surfing, Movies
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor, Speakers, OS, Hard Drive (will be re-using a 500GB SATA)
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.ca (Canadian)
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada
PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel CPU
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like a case with some good air flow. My aim here is to have a build that will feel solid, run well, and last a decent amount of time so I'm not wanting to upgrade soon. Will be playing games like Starcraft II, Diablo III, a little WoW here and there.
After checking reviews and doing a little research, they both seem to be similar and neither is whole bunch better than the other. But the i5 seems to have a small edge (and a few extra dollars more), and may OC better if I decide to do so.
I have my mind set on the CPU. Need more input for a GPU, PSU, and possibly a mobo (like I mentioned before, the P7P55 seems good but im open to suggestions)
