  1. 10/10.

    I dont find anything bad in it. :)
  2. it would have been better if you posted it before you ordered it .i think you should have got a 2500k instead of a 2600k there's no noticeable difference for gaming. i would rate 7 for a mid range gaming pc.
  3. Now here starts giving the bad advice to get i5 2500K. Why shouldn't he buy a better processor with hyperthreading if he can afford it?

    There is no noticable difference only in gaming, not in Heavy Multitasking, Video Transcoding and File compression.

    Why mid ? the gtx 580 is pretty much new, cpu too and 8gb memory is more then enough... or I'm wrong ?

    he could use the same money to upgrade something else
  7. I'd give it an 8. Performance would be good, but it has limitations. It loses a point right off for the mobo, which only supports x16,x4. A better choice would be http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157250 which has a PLX chip and can use any/all ports without giving up others, and do Crossfire or SLI at x8,x8.
    It loses another point on bang/buck, although that assumes this is meant as a gamer. For the money, the 2500K is the better CPU choice, if professional video work is not an important use.

    Edit: Just to be clear, this is by no means to say it sucks. It's a nice machine, and would blow the doors off my X4 970 and GTX560Ti in any benchmarks. In actual use, I don't think the cost difference would be worthwhile, and a high-end build should have better multi-GPU options.
