I'm planning on getting this as a Gaming Rig, i would be pleased to hear your options and suggestions for it, i don't have much time right now to review everything on detail, but i have read to get a i5, but prefer the newer i7 as it is more future proof and its not easy for me to replace systems that often.
If there is a better replacement part or something that might be outdated or not fully compatible i would love to hear it, parts not showing are not needed, like HDD or Monitor, and have anyone used that case? seems good but haven't checked reviews on it.
Also i can't use Newegg my credit card always get rejected for some or other reason.. would prefer amazon or something likewise.
because it can handle more threads, and developers are using that more and more, also remember benchmarks are based on virgin OS installs, and since extra applications are always installed in the background, the extra processing capabilities are useful i think. triple channel also adds up a bit. i might be wrong, but i guess i like it 7 more than 5 hahaha.. thanks anyways
Unless games change drastically in the number of threads they require without becoming more efficiently coded in regards to memory access (unlikely), then hyperthreading isn't going to ever become a positive factor for game performance.
