  1. Well currently I just did a recent build and for well under $1000 you can get the new sandy bridge processor either the i5 2500k or i7 2600k. As far as motherboards that is kinda a personal thing on what you need or dont need. I went with a i5 sandy and a MSI motherboard with G.skill ripjaw 1600 8 gb this combo alone cost me around $550. This is the best cpu on the market besides going to the i7 sandy but unless you need the extra threads then I would stick with the i5 2500k especially for gaming.
  2. Please suggest me Asus and Intel motherboards and I've something in my mind for other things what I don't get is, motherboard. :(
  3. anyone?
