Last time, on my other thread:


ive decided since my budget is 690£ i have decided,
this year i shall get:

Intel core i7 3770k | £242.27
Sapphire Radeon hd 6750 | 45.90
Western Digital Caviar Blue 160 GB |£24.90
Corsair 8GB (1x 8GB) Vengeance Performance Memory Module |£34.55
Powercool Modular 650W 80+ Dual 12V V2.2 High Efficiency PSU|£45.00
Gigabyte XKT-1155 Z68AP-D3 Motherboard (Rev 1.0)|£62.36
Acer S271HLAbid 27" Inch Full HD LED Display|£185.00
NEW MARS BLUE GAMING ATX CASE PC COMPUTER TOWER & LCD TEMP DISPLAY & CLEAR SIDE|£33.50
2.4Ghz Ultra Slim Wireless keyboard and mouse|£13.99

TOTAL: 687.47

no aftermarket cooler. no overclock

next year i shall get:

Intel core i7 3770k | £242.27
Sapphire Radeon hd 7870 | ??? (i forget)
Western Digital Caviar Blue 160 GB |£24.90
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1tb |??? (i forget)
Corsair 16GB (2x 8GB) Vengeance Performance Memory Module |£65.00
Powercool Modular 650W 80+ Dual 12V V2.2 High Efficiency PSU|£45.00
Gigabyte XKT-1155 Z68AP-D3 Motherboard (Rev 1.0)|£62.36
Acer S271HLAbid 27" Inch Full HD LED Display|£185.00
NEW MARS BLUE GAMING ATX CASE PC COMPUTER TOWER & LCD TEMP DISPLAY & CLEAR SIDE|£33.50
programmable mouse| £19.50
backlit keyboard|£23.50
Arctic Freezer Pro 13 Rev.2 CPU cooler

TOTAL: 917.47

and then overclock the transistors (geek joke) out of it.

that means i have, kickass single threaded performance and multithreading power to match.
next year i get kickass single threaded performance and multithreading power to match but then overclocked = good. *fibre-optic high five*

this way i get the best of both worlds. like semi-skimmed milk, only completely different.



This Time... the reason i made the new thread is because since the FX-8350 has been kicked out f the mix the title "Is The AMD FX-8350 Good For Gaming" would be misleading so i made a new one. what do you think of my master plan.

i will be planning to throw All types of games, developing, video rendering, developing and browsing, hd video viewing, most likely at the same time.
