  1. What do you intend to do with the system? For gaming, an i5-750/760 is more than enough. If you're doing something like 3D rendering, then you might want to go with an i7, though the 920 is old news...a 930 or 950 can be had for around USD$300.
  2. Please put it in this format, it makes it easier for us to help you!
  3. Oh, Ill be playing games like: Star Trek Online, GMOD, CSS, DoD, E:TW, N:TW, M:TW, and many others.
