I saw the cheap intel build on here and decided to tweak it a bit and i already had one amd in mind but i was wondering which one would be better? the difference is literally 1 cent and i do realize intel is the better brand but it seems like im getting more bang for buck from the AMD build. im no expert and i dont know if ill be bottlenecking or something and would like other peoples opinions. Also i dont have to worry about a case because i have a spare one from my uncle.
Say no to the 550Ti. Either go with a Radeon 6850 for an extra $10 or a 6790. If you want to stay nVidia then find a GTX 460. While the Intel build is a better value I say get either a Z68 or P67 board that supports crossfire (and sli if you go nvidia) so that you can upgrade and OC a CPU latter even if that means dropping down to a I3 for now
