Re: question regarding buiding a new pc
If you want a fast CPU, you'll have to spend a little more for your system. For $600, you can get a decent mid range PC build. You have to be aware of bottlenecks too. Having a fast CPU won't make your computer efficient if your other components are low grade. You'll have to balance it out to get most out of it and that means paying more for a fast machine. But if you just want a fast CPU, we can give you some ideas to fit your budget. I'll do some research to see.
For the specs you see in my sig, I spent approx. $1200-$1400. Can't remember actual figures. It also depend on what manufacturer you get for your components.
