I am putting together a gaming pc and I could use a little advice on choosing the right processor. The i7's are a bit out of my price range so I am thinking of going with one of the i5's. What is best for gaming, Dual core or Quad? also, I would like to add a second video card through sli sometime down the road. Thanks to anyone who can help.
My budget is around $1000.00. right now I game at 1680x1050 but I might buy a new monitor a little bit down the road so I would like to put together a system that can handle higher resolutions. I would also like to use my GTS 450. I was thinking of buying a mobo that supports sli so I have the option to run 2 gts 450's if I feel the need for a performance boost.
