  1. looks pretty good for your uses, though you could drop down to a good 450-500w PSU (Antec has a neo 500w for $50 on the egg)
  2. Thanks for looking. I'd like to get a little more input just because some of these deals expire today. ttt
  3. it's good, you could save by using a lesser psu. If you do not intend on upgrading, a decent 400-500watt will be enough
  4. I am thinking about grabbing this evga board what do you guys think?

    EVGA X58 FTW3 132-GT-E768-KR LGA
  5. $708AR?

    That is a hell of a budget build!

    From the little bit I understand the i7 outperforms in regard to cpu intensive tasks like video encoding.
  7. Thubans and Nehalems/i7 Lynnfields go toe to toe from what i gather but obviously fall short of Gulftown ^^ LGA 2011 to replace LGA 1366, LGA 1155 to replace LGA 1156 and the above price with SSD though is of prime importance hehe
