Well this is the deal I made with my mom. I have 800 dollars right now in my bank account and I am probably going to get interviewed for a job at a grocery store this week. If I get hired for the job, my mom will use the newegg preferred account thing and I'll give her 800 bucks to pay off a bunch of the first bills, and I'd have about 200 bucks in like two weeks to pay the rest off. I'd have enough money to pay it off within a month. It's a pretty good plan, although I need that job to do it :/

What Traches said is the reason why I made this thread in the first place. The i5 would help a tiny bit in gaming, which is fine, and the 1090T would give about the same framerates, although for video editing I'd want the i5.

Idunno, in principle I'm against going into debt to buy anything that's not a a car, a house, or used to generate income. Even the car is debatable; it's much better to pay cash. A computer? Let's be honest, it's just a toy... You should pay cash for toys. Is there any particular reason you need the computer NOW?

I'm just impatient. That's really the only reason I can think of. The reason why I wanted to make the decision tonight is because if the AMD build isn't THAT much worse, I could sacrifice a little bit of performance to get the computer early. Apparently it's not worth doing that though.

Haha well it's obviously your decision, do what you like. Paying $800 cash and putting $200 on credit is hardly irresponsible, I'm just being an old man

Just don't put the whole thing on a credit card and waith 6 months to pay it off.

Indeed. Newegg's policy for $500+ orders is 12 months anyway, and since I already have 800 it would not be difficult to pay it off. Here's the thing: I don't have a credit card. It'd be my parents paying the bills and I highly doubt they want to get any further into financial issues. This computer business is pretty much all on my shoulders until I get a job.

Here is the deal. Save some more money and go with PLAN #2 - Intel Core i5-2500k, ASRock P67 Extreme4, EVGA GTX 560 Ti SC, 8GB DDR3 1600 CS9 RAM. PRICE - About $1014. In the near future you will see why this was better. Besides remember that a 560 non TI is basically like a re branded gtx 460. You made a really good choice by going with EVGA because they offer lifetime warranty. The 8gb and a 560ti will help with your video stuff.

Now the reason you should go with the 2nd build is cause when Battlefield 3 comes out, than you would say, "Damn I should of got the 560ti and the 2500k so I can get some higher settings and higher fps."

Traches is Totally right man. I'm in your same situation except I have 0 dollars and waiting on whether my job applications have been excepted or not. I have the same feeling as you that I just couldn't have this computer that I've been researching for months fast enough.
But I've also been in the situation where I could build an amazing computer in just two weeks work if I had the chance too.
My advice is to wait for the job because if you don't get it (Highly unlikely in a grocery store) you are pretty much screwed with the newegg bills and no money to pay them or your mom back.

(I worked in grocery for 2.5 years BTW)

Also remember, its good to go with the intel chip because it will provide you the power you need and also there is a new motherboard out with LGA 115x socket which maybe backwards compatible with p67 sandy bridge and the upcoming Sandy Bridge E cpu's. For now I am not really sure if it will be backwards compatible but I think they will release more information in computex.

Call me un-American but......I don't play war-based shooters

Although you're right, it would be nice to have a rig that can max out a game as good looking as BF3.
