Drop your Ram to 8GB I don't really want to compromise on power because although i didnt mention this i want to somewhat future proof my computer that way in not back in 2-3 years getting an entirely new setup. As for the ram choice I want to experiment with some ram caching/ ram disk set up in the near future. | Report abuse Shockattackr July 25, 2012 7:43:27 PM Still with the i7 it would be horrible for gaming, No Game uses HT. also if you overclock the CPU to 4.4ghz or even 4.3ghz it would run faster then the I7 IMO | Report abuse Related ressources New build help, budget of around $1,500 - Forum New build im working on - Forum New Build looking for opinions and advice. - Forum New Build w/ Many Problems Need Help - Forum New Build w/ Many Problems Need Help - Forum Ask the community Publish Invio July 25, 2012 7:45:50 PM Shockattackr said:Still with the i7 it would be horrible for gaming, No Game uses HT. also if you overclock the CPU to 4.4ghz or even 4.3ghz it would run faster then the I7 IMO So besides that everything else looks okay? | Report abuse Best solution Shockattackr July 25, 2012 7:46:53 PM It looks that way | Report abuse Invio July 25, 2012 7:50:56 PM Best answer selected by Invio. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>New Build> Related ressources: ForumNew Build with Old HDD??
