OK guys, I am here again with a totally new build. It is 200 less than what I posted before. I am using newegg.com this time and only newegg.com No tigerdirect or microcenter ncix us, the lot. JUST NEWEGG.COM
Also, any description of what you are trying to use this system for?
Brand loyalty will cost you money/performance as a consumer. You should aim for the best performance at any particular price point.
With a 1000$ System I would recommend getting a 128GB SSD + a 3-500GB HDD. Let me tell a, 1TB can hold a toooooooooooooooon of porn, but it's otherwise not very practical unless you rip EVERY DVD/Blu Ray disc you own.
Primarily for gaming, watching HD movies on the 52 inch LED which is also going to be the monitor. Ill be playing GTA 5, Assassins Creed, Counter STrike, HL 2, Sims 3 plus expansions and other fun games in the future.
As for not picking intel, I am not paying 120 more for the i5 to have almost the same stats. I went to the graphics section on this site and the 4100 did well, almost as well as the i5.
For the mobo, if it is actually better, ill get that but please give facts to back up the claim. Thanks
