First off thanks for taking some time to Reading my thread,
my question is simply are these parts in your opinion, good for a budget gaming/all-around media center PC?
i intend to do a lot of multitasking on my computer as well as using it for Movies and Games. also i intend to overclock.
my budget is around $1800, and i selected parts that i thought might be good to make it versatile in all areas
(why i chose the i7 860 and not i5 750)
anyway, here is the build: tell me what you think of it. the only thing not listed is speakers, witch i have already...
You could get an i7 930 for $199 with the microcenter (www.microcenter.com) in-store special, which is $80 cheaper than newegg's i7 860 and $90 cheaper than newegg's i7 930. Even if there isn't a microcenter near you, people are often willing to pick one up for you and mail it to you. Just a thought, but I'd consider it, though you'd need a different mobo
