Paired with a Z68 motherboard, nice 64GB SSD in there for a boot drive (maybe more if can squeeze 128GB into budget). Do not sink $1k into an AMD build, CPU wise, it just isn't worth it. All benchmarks and graphs will show you Intel SandyBridge way out-performs when it comes to gaming. mojorisin23 March 28, 2012 3:24:57 PM Agreed Adrian... i5 2500k, asrock extrem3, GTX 560 Ti or 570 Ti, is how i'd go... abhop26 March 28, 2012 8:58:27 PM Would a solid state drive be better than a mechanical or should I just get one of those hybrids? AdrianPerry a b B Homebuilt system March 29, 2012 8:36:25 AM On your budget, you could probably fit in a 64GB SSD to use as a boot drive with a few other applications on Then use a mechanical as your data storage for like media and games ect.
