I am soon to be building my own PC. My main priority is gaming. I have a couple parts that would be nice, but there is a lot of people that know more then me on this site. So my real question is what is the best I can make a gaming PC with 600- 700 dollars.

If you have a decent speaker/headset setup and is a serious FPS player then you might want to look into one, if not, then pretty much no.

You might do better with a cheaper processor (955 or 965) and a better graphics card.

Yeah I just wanted to make sure if I needed it or not.


So pretty much if I want average sound then no but better then average yes?

Wouldn't it be better to go for a cheaper processor and go with a better graphics card?

Yes and no, for the cash a 955+HD6950 2GB is another option, which may or may not be better depending on what games you play.
The 955 does have both OC and an upgrade option of a BD in the coming months.

What games do you play, and at what resolution?

Then i5 is for you, as you won't be using the GPU often outside of gaming and both are quite CPU bound also
