Additional Comments: I was leaning towards an ivy bridge since i don't plan on doing a lot of over clocking. Also I can reuse my hard drive however it is only a 3Gb/s and I didn't know if i should upgrade or not. This will be my 3rd time building a computer.
This roughly costs $910 so i have some room to play with. Would it be worth getting a 6Gb/s hard drive instead of keeping my current 3Gb/s? I could also upgrade to a 7950 but is it worth the extra money over the 7870? Or am I completely wrong about everything lol.
Yea I am going to re use it since unless and will look into getting an ssd later this year. If for some reason i can't get a hold of the 3750k how much of a of a difference would I notice if i went with a 2500k instead.
