  1. As many programs as I have open at work, I'd probably prefer angel0fmars' build for performance.
  2. Just a thought, seeing as the Cpu in Hunter's build is discontinued, it might be a good idea to change/remove it from the list. Or switch it for the 445, although that one is up in price a bit.
  3. I think Hunter should make the choice.
  4. I'm just saying, what's the point of having a recommended build if one of the components isn't really being sold anymore.
  5. Agreed. I was just suggesting that Hunter should choose which CPU to select as an alternative.
  6. Isn't the 445 just a couple dollars more? I don't see a problem.
  7. Obviously for only $3 more you swap in the 445 for the 440, the problem was that i made that build over a month ago now so lots of things have changed, but right now the 445 is $78 when the 440 was $75 so its an obvious swap.
  8. Yeah, for me in Canada, its a bit bigger gap b/w the two, almost a whole 10$. (!!!)
    Nice build though. ;)
