I have no intention on saving money, hence why I asked for a 2.6k gaming rig and not a 1.3k Gaming rig . but why downgrade from the Samsung to the intel? I've heard the samsung performs better than the intel and is said to have a better overall quality. and then from the 1tb 10k rpm to the 2tb 7.2rpm why the switch? Any specifc reason why you chose these parts? why you chose the fan cooler over the interloop water cooler I chose? and why the 3570k over the 3770k I would feel like the newer version would run faster no? and for 2.6k I'm pretty sure I could throw that in there just for pure overkill.
