I was originally planning on getting an intel sandy bridge i7... but now i don't what to choose since the X6 core is cheaper than the i7... could someone tell me why that is?
NO YOU FOOL! DON'T GO AMD RIGHT NOW
I would suggest you purchase the i7 2600k , its a good deal and people seem to be able to overclock them insanely! Plus the G1.Sniper 2 is coming out and it is ready for 22nm tech .. Ivy Bridge I think.. Just saying Intel right now is future proof. At this time AMD will not be in full swing to some time mid or early next year. As much as I love AMD and cheated with them with INTEL because I am bad...
But Intel right now is your best bet for for 1000 dolla you can get enough, maybe 3-4 items and if you have a decent case to fit it all
BTW Leave Newegg.com alone, I would recommend Amazon.com because Amazon is tax free and right now you can get a free month of Amazon Prime. What Amazon Prime does is gives you the ability to do 1 day shipping for freaking $3.99!!! and no tax, so you get it faster and you save money .. where as Newegg... no not at all. I am actually really starting to like Amazon a lot more than Newegg
