Apologies for another one of these threads! but i'm about to spend big on my first custom build and would like some feedback on the specs i'm looking at. I set my budget around £1200 and have been reading around for weeks now piecing together the best componants for my price range....This is what I have in mind.... Will this spec be as awesome as I hope it will be???
I7 950 ( I intend to overclock, again my first attempt at this)
The i5 760 performance is close to the i7 950 and is about 100 dollars cheaper. You will also save money on a motherboard as good socket 1156 mobos are a bit cheaper. The only real difference in performance is because of the 200mhz difference in clock speed at stock settings. You will be overclocking so that will negate that advantage, both chips will clock to around the same frequency.
