hmm as i told i would rather prefer taking an i7 930 over the amd phenom with msi big bang power x motherboard which is a lga 1366 mobo, so to keep a tab on the price i was thinking of getting hd 5850 instead of the 5870 with a 650w psu so that in future if i go for crossfire i can easily manage it, can some one kindly suggest some good latest x58 based mobos with i7-930 and i would be going for patriot PGV 34G2000ELK for memory and an after market cpu cooler (any suggestion)

you can never get an i7 build with a budget of 1000 an amd would give much better performance.

here is an amd build with a gtx 460 which preforms sometimes equaly to a 5850 and when overclocked it can be the same as the 5870.

also if u sli them with the mobo i suggest it preforms 2-4 fps worse than 2 5970's in cfx (basicly the gtx 460 is the best bang for the buck)

cpu&mobo: x4 955 & asus m498td evo

at least $1300 (but believe me you will not notice any difference in gaming maybe 1-3 fps better. so is it worth $400??)

as for amd the phenom ii x6's when games start supporting the 6cores
as for intel's 1336 there is only the 980x which costs $1000


oh and also AMD has indicated that they plan to release a new processor called Bulldozer for the AM3 socket next year
