asus Maximus iii formula
i5 750
4gb corsair xms3 1600
EVGA gtx 470 sc
Corsair hx850w
Seagate barracuda 1tb
cheap optical drive
windows 7 home premium 64bit

i7 pc
corsair obsidian 800d

i7 930
6gb g. Skill pi 1600

  1. I would say both are overkill in almost all parts except the cheap optical drive. :) But if you can afford it, then go for the i7 as the i5's 1156 platform has some limitations comparatively. But it is a hell of a gaming platform itself.

    Maybe fill out the Build Advice form in my signature, and we'll have a better base to make our decisions off of.
