Im building this setup mainly for gaming. I dont photoshop, make movies or whatever.. Just gaming, internetting and downloading. I also am NOT overclock my system.
Since im from The Netherlands I cant use any tips about ordering some special sale at Newegg or some other shop outside my country. So just use the information im giving .
Originally my budget is 650 $, but I might up it for the i5 if its really worth it.
The questions I got are:
1/ Is the i5 setup worth the extra 100 $ ? If yes, why?
2/ is it necessary to change the stock CPU cooler or are both CPU's doing fine with the stock one? (for example: If the i5 rly needs a different cooler, then the differents between the price is even higher than it is now.. )
3/ If I go for upgrade (1) is the ''Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3'' the right way to go? Or will the ''MSI 770-G45'' be just fine? Which is around 25$ cheaper.
