Additional Comments: I will be purchasing SSD as an upgrade later on. Since I'm almost positive i'll never overclock is it worth having the possibility or should I just save another $30 and get the i7 2600.
I'm set on using the i7 i want this rig to last me a long time. 3d rendering and gaming are top priorities. I also don't plan on overclocking so if that's the case maybe there's some changes to be made? I'd like to keep the budget as low as possible. If you have any alternatives or changes please post.
Thank you both very much for your input. Also added US prices and removed the monitor from the list as i'll be going in-store myself to check them out.
Is the power supply efficient? I don't mind investing in something more green that would save me money in the long run. If anyone has some insight on the speed of rendering 3d scenes will this produce relatively fast results?
^ The 750TX is a very good PSU and so is the Corsair 650HX, also the HX is modular and is 80+ Bronze so it is little more efficient than the 750TX, also like I said, even it can power 2x GTX 460s no problem,...
Also you might want to consider a SSD for a boot drive or as a scratch disk, would significantly reduce the app load and boot-up times,...
