What's wrong with the suggestion ? i just made the best possible within the maximum limit.
You just keep provoking in all threads, keep your suggestion to the op, when i make a suggestion i make it to the op, i don't care how much you or others listed.
Also there's nothing wrong with the i5 :

im not provoking anything, im stating u should write final price in ur quotes.

and who asked u to care, each to there own suggestions mate.

and the i5 is nice but above budget.

and he wants to overclock u cant overclock an i5 chip that u selected and the h77 doesnt support overclocking.

das how we do mate.

I'm not against any, but you keep provoking, wasn't easy to say that to the op that i got a build under x ?
As far as i know an i5 is more expensive for obvious reasons, i don't see the point.

ur perception of me is= provocation, witch is in reality just a perception and not a fact.

the 6core will do what the 4core can, zambezi plateform is alot better than previous fx series.

There's another thread, i made a cheaper build with 660 ti after several proposes, but in no way did i mention your suggestion, or said directly to you "hey i got a cheaper build", just replied directly to the op, without mention of your suggestions.
Respect above all.

Both of you need to stop with the bickering, just make your suggestions and leave it up to the OP to decide what's best for them.
