  1. Get a i5 3570k and use the $100 saved towards a 7950.
  2. Agreed with above but also:

    1)Not sure if thats a soundcard or onboard from mobo but you don't really need a sound card unless your a massive audiophile
    2)Make sure your PSU is from a reputable manufacturer, seasonic, xfx, pc power and cooling etc
    3)8gb of ram is plenty for gaming. 1.5v and 1600mhz.
  3. Thanks guys,

    I will look into the i5.....:)
  4. No problem, for gaming you will see little to no difference in an i5 and i7. Don't forget to consider the other points to.
  5. Yeh thanks mate...

    I really want to run max settings with Bf3 and FSX flight sim....It should do the trick yeh?
  6. i5 3570k is the gaming king. You should max those games out with a 7950 and i5 on one monitor.
  7. Yeh great! I only want one monitor....Thats great to know...Will get a quote in the next few days and post up here for feedback....I'm living in Hong Kong at the moment..
  8. Do you really need 2 TB worth of space?
