the i7 860. or better yet get a x58 mobo. then get the i7 930. which is faster than all of those. for video encoding. core i7 still is the champion. hexaore didnt really give much of a boost. stick with the i7. and that gtx260. change? or a 5770? or do you have this already? i can give u a list of specs. if you give me a budget.
The price diff 790FX vs 890FX is really not big but 880/870 some come under $100 and with some savings here and there TS could land a juicier GPU hehe 790FX also requires BIOS update to support Thubans ^^
Depeding how multi threaded app is: seen 1090T in particular just nipping ahead of Nehalem but true value in a 1055T/800 series entry/mainstream chipset is its OC headroom despite being locked multi chip and features/$$ like native SATA 6GB/s, USB 3.0 , etc $$ no issue all bells and whistles ...add in SSD,,yada yada ^^
Definitely!Nope independent of CPU Stuff loads fast ...lappies become such a pleasure to use ..many view it at times as the single most effective upgrade for systems..but i guess these peeps are too concerned with the $$/GB of SSDs currently ^^
Well I just want to have a system which is future proof for some years, I can stretch my budget to 1800$, but not more than that. Well I am open to i7 930 if it can provide me speed and performance. I don't have 5770, but with core i 7 processor i 'll prefer to have a nvidia card maybe gtx 295 or 480 if not gtx 260.
