Actually, the Illusion has dust filters, which IMO are worth it.
Just wondering, why the i7 over an i5? What rum are you looking at?
I chose the i7 only cause I can get the 930 at Microcenter for $200 which I think is a good deal. And I figure the 1366 socket would provide greater upgradibility in the future with the Asus P6x58de Mobo.
Just out of curiosity, were you talking about the i5 760 cause I can't find that one for much less than 200. I also saw the i5 650 at microcenter for 140. But if I got that one, would I just spend the money saved on the processor and mobo (p7p55de pro) on a better graphics card?
And as for the RAM, i was looking for suggestions. Maybe the 1333 type would be the best for value. I'm not sure. I'm open to suggestions.
