I started wanting Amd. Then I decided I like Intel. I recently settled on my build and plan on ordering in about a week... same theory. 1000 dollars. SLI option. starcraft.

I won't force it upon you but if you'd like to see the best Intel build 1000 can buy I'll post it.

If you want to save more money, then even the HD 5850 would suffice, also you can add 1 more later on...

If you want Intel option -
i5 760 + ASUS P7P55D-E Pro
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

GTX 460 1GB + Free game
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

So still should come in the same price range I think...


gkay09 just saved me the trouble of listing several components in my build :lol: 

ALSO:

ANTEC 300 ILLUSION

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

G.SKILL 4GB ECO RAM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

XFX BLACK EDITION 750W PSU. very highly rated PSU. review: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HYPER 212 POWER SUPPLY. cheap and highly rated.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SPINPOINT F3 1 TB. great price for capacity and highly rated.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ASUS DVD BURNER. nuff said.

All of the above comes out to about $960 with rebates. I did a lot of reading up and I love this build. The i5 proc overclocks easily and the payoff is big. Same goes for the 460, which provides GREAT bang for buck. and it kicks @$$ in SLI. One 460 is totally fine for now, and later you can another another for SLI and it will be even cheaper. ;)

As for the PSU, even this 650W XFX would suffice if going with GTX 260 SLI

So should save some more money...
