I would wait till mid June so you can have more options in buying a computer that is up-gradable and powerful

Don't get a Phenom 2 build unless you know you're making a 100% Bulldozer ready platform.

I think an Intel Sandy Bridge build would be better and at least be compatible with the upcoming IvyBridge.

Do you plan to OC? If not I think it's even safe to get an i3 2100 over a Phenom 2 965. It even beats X6 in some benchies.

If you're itching, get an SB build now.. if you can wait for another month then that's the time when BD will likely come.

I think that's just a smaller die, modified Sandy Bridge Intel cpu line and the start of Ivy Bridge mid 2012. I wouldn't wait that long



Also in the amount of time till june, the amount of money you may make that you add to your building cost will push your performance levels up. Highly recommend waiting till Mid June.

I wouldn't bet or plan for ivy bridge on any of the current generation motherboards or even sockets for Intel right now.

Dual monitor gaming? not unless you have stuff like eyefinity and such. not to mention there is a bezel down the center. If yo want dual monitors, you'll want one to be for your games, not on both screens.

If you dual, try to get the same monitor model and size or at least the size so they match up well.

It's expensive though so I wouldn't do it till later.

If you want to play on multiple screens, go for AMD graphic cards with eyefinity

basically do 6950 and up. the 7xxx Radeon HD series comes out around August and will be more powerful, less power consumption, and probably more features and include eyefinity
