sorry for caps
i need a big ssd 120gb for cheap and would like a GOOD cpu cooler,: i picked the thermal right silver arrow cuz i heard its beast: i dont wanna go noctua d14 cuz its too expensive, if theres anything better for a close $5-10 price please tell me.
These choices would save a few bucks and you could save more if you wanted to go with an AMD setup. Since video is not an option and your looking for processing power then the AMD cpu's can compete very well.
This motherbaord is a little bit more but I chose it because of the 990X chipset and also I just looked at Newegg and you might be able to find it for less somewhere else. It also takes dual channel memory.
The Intel cpu's are known for better performance with video and gaming but the AMD cpu's can compete when it's productivity and number crunching and the 8150 comes at a higher stock speed and can be overclocked to a much higher speed. Plus you have 8 physical cores that are not hyperthreaded and the cpu is a multitasking beast , so if it's just office use and not video I would seriously think about the 8150.
