Additional Comments: Which build looks better? Price difference is relatively negligible. Some say the AM3 socket is more future proof, x6 is better at multitasking (which is really what I need more than gaming), but I worry about the lack of GPU on the AMD build, especially since I hope to add BD-ROM in the future. Thoughts?

  2. I think TheDuke has the best build there. The lack of DX11 will not hurt you, as the 5750 is too weak for DX11 games anyway. You'll get better overall performance from the 4870.

    I would take the x4 965 in combo though

    It's going to serve you better in games and other apps that are not multi-threaded.
