I just want some feedback on how this rig looks so far. So far it's at $994, so I'm pretty satisfied with it. I'd also love feedback on anything that's "overdone". I'm getting that processor because a) I'm not the type of person who upgrades often and b) I want the 6-core for some After Effects/Premiere editing.
Any news on deals/combos that would help me save money would also be awesome.
Alright, so I added the RAM and HDD you guys linked. I also toned down the PSU a bit (edited OP). Price is now at $999.92.
Why would you say the X4 is a better choice? I guess 6-cores is not really needed for gaming, eh? But I do want to render some 3D things once in a while (though I guess quad can handle that pretty well) Regardless, I've added a 'backup' processor so in case I choose not to go with the X6.
Well, anyway, the OP is updated. Is the MoBo solid? Video Card good?
