Okay, lets take two steps backwards and re-examine the situation......shall we? There are games that run better "using" a single core of a multi-core processor. Do not confuse this with "you need a single core processor". If you have a game that only works well with one core, buy a multi-core processor that runs at a very high clock speed. A P4 is useless for gaming. Seriously, please don't waste your time. Your be really disappointed with the final result. Please...
You need to make sure the speakers you are hooking up match the input impedance the amplifier is rated for. If the impedance doesn't match, your amplifier won't be able to output at full power. (This might damage it as well in extreme circumstances, not sure). If the impedance matches, go for it.

You ALWAYS want a current limiting resistor on a LED, unless you are using a constant current supply. The +5V on USB is a constant voltage supply, not a constant current supply. There is situations where it will work without a resistor, but this is a very bad design practice. Your LED's will be prone to burning out after extended periods of operation. I did research and development work at a LED sign factory, and i designed constant current driver for LED display...
First of all, "C# or C++" or "Which programming language to take" would make much better title for your thread. I took a C# programming class, then got hired at a job that required me to do C++. I was able to teach myself C++ in a week (since both languages are very similar). Go with what your heart desires. Personally, i would do C#, because that seems to be the "future" of C.
This is made of win. I just shared it on my facebook.
And your temps are?
1.) Parallel verse Series has NO effect on LED power consumption. They still dissipate the same amount of power. Series requires a higher voltage, but parallel requires a higher current. Ohm's law, know it. 2.) Umm... current limiting resistor? Don't forget that. With a constant voltage, you need to vary current to adjust brightness. You use a current limiting resistor to control maximum brightness. Assuming those are 20mA LED's, your looking at like 82 Ohms. 3.)...
Can you get it to boot windows in safe mode?
The question is: What games do you want to run, and will you be running in the near future? Your looking at about +10-15 more FPS for a "newer" single video card solution. I personally wouldn't upgrade, but I'm always broke. Is that performance gain worth the money to you? For gaming, a i7 is useless (no games will use all the cores). The i5 2500K is everything you could want for games. If your building a new PC, go ivy bridge. :-) This should bring you up to speed...
