  1. ^ Well if for gaming, then I would suggest the i5 760 or X4 955...the 6-Core doesnt offer any advantage over these CPUs...

    And PSU + CASE - IMO you wont need 1000W and also a better manufacturer...
    Lian-Li K62 + XFX 750W

    Graphics card - XFX and Free game...

  2. For a high end AM3 gaming build instead of waging a finger @ u for spending $2k + this is what

    $1.2k AR

    Your LCD $180AR
    $1380 AR Grand Total buys ya ^^
  3. Bah, Gkay AND Batuchka have answered this thread - there really was no need for me to come here :P

    If going with intel i5 760 you would want an Asus P7P55D E Pro board for USB/SATA III and Crossfire/SLI. You could then go with a GTX 460 and SLI it later, or a 5870 to Crossfire later.

    I cannot see Bat's suggestion at work, but I am guessing he has the AMD build covered
