Also i realised the i7 960 was a bad choice seeing as the new intel CPUs are much better, but ive already ordered the x58 (socket 1366) motherboard so thats what i've got. if anyone could suggest a better GPU alternative for ($320) i'm always listening..
so far i've only ordered the case, motherboard, HDD and monitor so suggestions for other then that will be greatly appreciated..
^^^ I did ask for advice here mate and for what i want to run, (adobe suite) people recommended the i7 because of the hyper-threading tech, not everyone on this site wants a gaming build. but thank you for your effort.
