Hello guys. My birthday is coming up and i want to by a new system because i realised my athlon 3200+ is a bit slow
Anyway, the computer will be used mainly for gaming and watching HD videos but also some editing and programming (perhaps making Android apps for example, not building systems ).
I also want the computer to be somewhat futureproof, for example AMD:s bulldozer and GPU/CPU are being released not far from now and im wondering if the Crosshair IV Formula will be able to take those parts.
If your main use is gaming, you could probably just go with an AMD build. You can save money by bumping that X6 processsor to an X4. The X4 works better than the X6 in games. Secondly, you don't really need a 1000w PSU. A 750 or 850w (depending on whether you'll crossfire and OC) will suffice.
With those changes, you could bump the GPU in your AMD build to a 5870 and you'll be good to go.
