Additional Comments: this is my build so far, so i hope you experts can spot whatever issues,compatability problems, future proofness, and stuff like that.
NOTE:slighty unsure on the PSU and MOBO.
i think i should get a better Mobo maybe? heard it improves online gaming
yes and, should i wait even longer? because since Ivy Bridge and the radeon 7000 sries are coming soon w and surly that would make the prices on the current one drop a fair bit, mayb ill even snag a ivy bridge Cpu insteand of the current sandy bridge selected.
fingers crossd for thos ridiculous HHD prices to go down
so this is what i have decided... im going to wait till march - april for the Ivy bridge release,so the sandy bridge prices will hopefully drop and ill get a i5 2400 instead.
and also pick up a radeon HD 7850 (is this better than the geforce 560ti?).
do you think this is a smarter choice, as the Ivy bridge mostly is for less wattage and better integrated graphics, or so i heard.
