CPU - I am stuck between which CPU to get out of these three (I can get them all for the same price):
Intel® Core™ i7 Processor I7-920
Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9650
Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q9550S
Thank you for the reply... I will plan on getting that mobo but wont need the combo deal because I can get the CPU though a buddy of mine who works for intel. I know you said any ram but any suggestions? I think 4gig would be good enough right?
papasmurf12345 you can just look at the Bundle I posted on 05-25-2010 at 04:51:10 AM and don't worry about Dual channel or Triple channel because I already found you a great BUNDLE for your PC. I found you a Gigabyte board and 6GB's in Triple channel.
If you go with the cheaper mobo at $119.99 then your total is: $239.98
I personally don't XFire as I just like to have a powerful single card, so I would likely have the cheaper myself, but many like XFire option.
Either way you should still have saved some money on the processor too so more money for when you get a GPU
