I have always bough AMD CPU's in the past as they always seemed to offer better value I have read so many bad reviews of AMD CPU's recently that it made me look at intel. I have managed to price up 2 systems at a similar price and from what I can tell the intel is likey to be much faster. I plan to add a gfx to replace the onboard on at some point as well as a SSD. My main concern is how upgradable this system will be in 2-3 years time in comparison to the AMD build.
I didn't get much feedback on my AMD post so all and any advice is welcome
Cool I'll keep an eye out for the gfx card, any idea how much it will cost? Have you any idea how the 2500k and this build as a whole will perform for audio processing tasks (compared to the amd build), the main reason for my upgrade is because pro tools doesn't run very well on my current system, gaming is a distant second really.
I'm glad I asked about the sales as I was on the verge of ordering most of this stuff today, I'll definitely hang on a few days now tho.
