Ok the one thing I am stuck with is seeing as I have to wait a few months for the money anyway, would it be worth going with ivy bridge or should I tick with the I5 2500k? AND should i get the i5-2500k or the i7-2600k
Thanks for the help guys I have been asking new build questions on this forum a lot haha sorry about that
my vote is for the ivy version of the 2600k for your Video Special Effects and Editing. Would help with that a bit. gaming alone, Alvine is correct.
Just make sure you can get driver support for your choice in mobo and SDD for OSX Lion. There are a few really good hackintosh sites out there. It's not as easy as building a PC and installing Lion. Have to be smart with your hardware purchases
