Deciding between two builds.
Oct 23, 2012, 2:49 PM
Just wanting to find out some opinions on two different builds that I'm trying to pick between.
Both will have -
Corsair 650D Case
Corsair AX1200 PSU
H100 CPU Cooler
LG DVD Drive
2x 128GB Samsun 830 Series SSD
2 x ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU II OC
The only difference is between getting a
2011 setup with -
Ramapage IV Formula
32GB Kit of G.Skill Ripjaw X
1155 Setup with -
Maximus V Extreme
16GB Kit of Corsair Vengeance
The 2011 setup will cost me around $3327 and the 1155 setup will be around $3142. So not much of a difference to really mattter.
Thanks for any opinions you can give.

If your spending >$3000 why would you not spend $200 and not get the extra 2 cores and added PCIe lanes from lg2011. You'd be stupid not to when your already spending this much money.
