Ok im a noob here first off. This is my first nontheroritical build so bear with me creteic( how ever its spelled), and ignore my spelling. Now on to buisness.

Cpu: amd phenom ii x6 1100T

Ram: gskill ripjaws x 1600 8 gigs ( the red ones at new egg for 57.99-59.99 atm

Mobo: asus crosshair V

Psu: antec earthwatts 750w

Hdd: wd cavlar black 1 tb 7200 sata 6gbs

VC: 6770(or 6570 one of the 2) 800 base clock 1gb 128bit

Case: cooler master 932

Cooling:

Rasa 750 rx360
As5
Plenty of case fans

Once more im sorry for the spelling im typing this on an ipod at midnight so dont be harsh and if any more info is needed ill track down a laptop to give you links.

Thanks soooooo much and btw if i forgot something chances are i just for got to list them as i had a very picky ipod and full head.
 
i5 2500k $219.99
GA-Z68XP-UD5 $269.99

Crosshair V Formula $230.00
X 6 1100T $190.00

The $50 odd difference is marginal when you consider the core efficiency of a Intel vs AMD processor. This isn't a hard choice, a very inneffective 6 core based on old microprocessor technology, or a streamlined sandybridge efficient processor.

I think you can save a hell of a lot of money by rather going for a ASUS P8Z68 v pro or GA-Z68XP-UD4 board and buy a i5 2500k.

Ok based off the 2 responses i feel like i should say that im on a 1120 budget and i really want to go wc i could break even ish with a 2500k and asrock pcie 3.0x16 mobo. But i really liked the features of the crosshair v and the fact that i could get a copy of human revolution for free with the 1100T

Now before i change my mind about debating about intel how much farther can i oc the 2500k over the 1100T and how much farther can i oc the 2600k over them both
