Based on that logic, what do you rate your rig?
I give it a 2.2

6 core is more future proof than 4 core, regardless of price. Sandy Bridge is great, x58 is better, unless you just want headers and an exhaust tip on your Honda that is....
Are Honda's faster than Ferrari's?
While I agree a 6 core is more future proof, SB-E is out in Q4. Now, THAT's the 6 core I'm personally upgrading to. 1366 will be obsolete. The 3930K will walk all over the 970 for the same price. Anyway....
This is a gaming rig which includes a 3GB 580 for a 22" monitor.
Why not save $750 plus the $350 in his monitor budget, and put THAT towards a 1600p 30" screen instead. Same money spent, WAY better gaming experience.
Do you know which the better gaming platform is?
Hint: It's not 1366 anymore.
