If I had the budget for an i5 I would go for it but currently I don't. I can however do an i3 2120.
Here's the Intel i3 build: http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=24611927
And the processor/Mobo Combo:
Intel Core i3 2120 Sandy Bridge + Biostar TZ68K MOBOhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.988736
If I choose to I can upgrade to an i5 or i7 in the future with the LGA 1155 socket luckily.
One Question. If the Radeon 6870 requires 2 6 pin power connectors, will one 6 pin and 1 6+2 pin work to power the card by simply leaving out the +2?
Thanks for the help guys btw.
