JordanR44 February 2, 2012 7:29:00 AM Can i ask y u picked the i5 4-core instead of going with a 6-core, which i understand is better for multi-tasking and video rendering? it seems to me that the i5 2500k is the answer everyone gives to almost any build on the forums, and i am curious as to why. not that i am saying you are wrong or anything, im actually very curious why this seems to be the case..... and thanks for all ur hard work ebola28 February 2, 2012 7:29:52 AM the 955 should be good enough, get a new GPU and PSU.
