Too much premium going from 8/8 to 16/16 CF for too little gains for me so
$667 base build

swapping CPU/RAM for 1055T + 4GB Mushkins
$55 top up

Top up for a HD 6870 $60

$782 in total (1055T + HD 6870)

HD 6000 single/CF review

Stick to air cooling and SSD as cherry on the cake so under

Optional Items

60GB Sandforce based SSD $113AR Free Ship

Scythe YASYA cooler $35

will the processor be enough for transcoding with convertxtodvd, the dual core i have right now takes 45min-1hr to transcode a 700mb avi file to dvd. So speed is somewhat of great importance

Sure 1055T unlike 1090T may not have unlocked multi but OCs just as well ^^

do u think that will be better than an i7 930 build

Best solution

if you are buying from newegg then why go for the i7 930 when the i7 950 is going so cheap?

i7 950 vs x6 1090T

i7 950 price

the consideration for the i7 930 is the overclocking

the i7 950 overclocks just as well as the i7 930, and did you read the reviews on the cpu cooler batuchka suggested, it even outperforms the coolermaster v10 and the scythe is $35
