Howdy all. I don't stop in here too often, but I last built a system about 2 years ago when i7 was still just on the horizon.
I'm getting the itch again and wondering if some of you would be so kind as to help me get started building a new system using the i7 chipset. Or perhaps I should be waiting for something that is near in the future?
Primary purpose of this system will be gaming, although it could potentially also get some coding use.
As far as budget, it's not a huge concern, but I don't want to be spending huge dollars for stuff that is bleeding edge, when I can get solid performance for dramatically cheaper.
I don't do hardware often enough to even know how to start (though I do rather enjoy assembling the system), so I appreciate any advice you all can offer.
