Ah okay. Could you provide me with 1 quote from both AMD and i7 please? I am flexible with my budget, so i'm willing to see what you can throw at me that can still not hurt my wallet, ie a $400 mobo or something of the sort.

AMD Processor $211.99 +shipping

Asus AMD mobo $124.99 +shipping

Intel Core i7 processor $303.97 +shipping

EVGA i7 mobo $259.99 +shipping

AMD: $336.98

As you can see, AMD tends to be quite a bit cheaper.

Also, you can go a bit cheaper on the RAM: Corsair XMS3

That should, as far as I can tell, work for both the AMD or Intel builds.

He is right that ram he suggested works great to, but alot cheaper. the system's ive built you, you could say there at the top of the line systems or very close. my signature below cost a little below 2k.

Vinman46 has 2 good builds to look at. you have alot of systems here to go over and decide what your next gaming rig will be. well, i wish you luck and hope everything goes well.

I agree, take a good look at vinman's builds, they seem to be pretty good. But at AMD said, it is ultimately your decision, just let us know what parts you decide on and we will make sure it works!
