I have always gone with AMD for my CPUs and have never had any heating issues or never had one that's been bad (fingers crossed). I've always been satisfied with the performance and speeds. Recently I've been wanting to try and do my gaming with an Intel CPU. I have some money saved and I'm wanting to build a new rig based off it. I get a discount so I can get ANY part for real cheap so price isn't an issue. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or recommendations for my build. I wanted to go for an i7 CPU, everything else is up for recommendations. Oh yeah, please provide a reason for why you're suggesting a certain part. Don't just say, "Buy this one!" Thanks again.
