At this point in time I am waiting on bulldozer to come out to see how it will do. If it does well, I will do an AMD build, if not it’s the 2500k. For the sake of argument, I will just put the 2500k on here.
I had originally planned on using an HD 6870 on my build but it would seem that my performance on games would be greatly hindered by the slower GPU (duh). For this reason I am willing to up my budget to get a 6950 or 560TI or readjust the build to accommodate a cheaper cpu to bring in the higher end gpu but I would really like to have a beefy processor. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
