More about wich build
  1. If you have the money go for the first one, water cooling would not be needed and you would have better performance
  2. In my opinion, build 1 has you spending way to much on a CPU, and build 2 has you spending way too much on a GPU. What about meeting in the middle and getting an i7 2600k and a 560ti.
  3. or i5 with gtx570
  4. 1st one. The 2nd one is 2-3 years old.
  5. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
