SC2 doesn't use more than 2 cores so I went with a triple (theres a chance this can unlock to a quad) rather than a full fledged quad to get under budget before rebates and save more after.

You should really try to buy your monitor in store so you can check it out first. A lot of the time monitors will have great looking specs but are very disappointing when they arrive at your home.

Both. I'm sure you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between these CPUs and an i7 in gaming.

AMD gets you the best bang for your buck. :D
