Well lost my job awhile back so had to wait to get a new job. Finally I'm ready for a new system, specs below:
Approximate Purchase Date: Right Now
Budget Range: $1500
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Development, very little gaming
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: Complete system from scratch
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: None
Parts Preferences: Whatever works the best for the price
SLI or Crossfire: No clue
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200
Additional Comments: I need a computer for development. I have a lot of windows open including memory eating programs like photoshop, dreamweaver, eclipse and 20+ browser windows open at once. I need something that is very fast as I will also have xampp installed locally do to development work. Will be running Windows 7
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I currently have an old computer that is very slow for development. Currently have a Intel Core2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz with 4GB DDR2, with GeForce 9500 GT 512MB video card.
People on this forum might chew me up for this, but since you are doing a lot of heavily threaded apps. I am going to recommend the fx-8150 (Although, I would wait for pile driver to be released very shortly).
