Basically Core i3, ATX Mobo with Crossfire / Dual Channel Ram / 1000Mbit LAN / USB 3.0, 8 Gig of 2133 DDR3 RAM, Steel Case, 80+ Gold 650 Watt PS, DvD RW Drive, 500 Gig 7200 RPM Hard Drive, and a Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit for my vid card
Price tag is around $650 after $50 in Rebate Debit Cards and a few Price Codes
I might be able to knock the price down another $100, but I'm taking a better Mobo/Power Supply now with future upgrades like adding a 2nd 6870 + other stuff down the road
Does the setup look good or is there something obvious that I'm missing? Again It's been quite a while since I looked at computer Hardware
My big question is should I pay the extra $100 to get a Core i5 2500K for twice the Cores/Cache + Turbo Technology or is the i3 just fine since it does hyper threading?
