After doing a bit of research, the I-5 760 seems like it holds up extremely well with modern
games and wouldn't cost me a fortune like any I-7 would. Everybody recommended that mobo
with the processor especially if you were planning on crossfiring, or SLI. Which I may if I can get
another 4780. I trust Corsair as you might be able to tell, so the RAM speaks for itself. And the
H50 seemed like a good heatsink to go with since my case isn't extremely large and the heatsinks
on the board and RAM take up a lot of room.
Thats what I've got so far. If anyone has any recommendations, advice, or if I looked over
anything for the set up, please feel free to say anything.
Also, if you'd wait, at 1st quarter 2011 Intel's Sandy Bridge will have prices as low as i5-750/760, while having performance nearing i7. I recalled there's a Tom's article here somewhere that "Sandy Bridge brings big promises".
If you are in the urgent need of a new and better system.
Replace the proc, RAM and mobo.
Postpone the GPU later and get from the HD6xxx series. HD4870 can still serve you well untill you get the new HD6xxx.
If you can still wait, postpone averything untill Sandy Bridge, Bulldozer, and HD6xxx are on the market.
