I am gonna be using this computer in my TV room, I have an aquos 60 lcd tv and could also use a 24inch lcd monitor which is in my closet. I will also connect it to bose surround 5.1, I have all the gaming systems so it would need to compete with the ps3 and xbox and Wii.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week
BUDGET RANGE: 1500
SYSTEM USAGE: gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies/ backing up my DVD and Bluray.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor,
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com preferred
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Texas
PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD or Intel, really need advise wether to get the best amd or an average intel, i dont want to upgrade for atleast 2 years
For just gaming, IMO X4 955/ i5 760 would be very good options...
But the X4 955 would be a better option because of the AM3 platform as AMD's next-gen CPUs might be based on AM3 platform, thus giving you an option to upgrade to them later on...
X4 955 + HD 5870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
