This.

Also, if it's just for gaming I personally would take the i3-2100 and use the spare cash to get a better card. The 2100 performs great in games and you'll be glad you got more GPU horsepower.

Its mainly for a media center. I know its overkill but it will be used for editing RAW photos and video so I need the power. I'll game on it here and there but its not the main focus.

Id probably go for a llano based media centre and add a separate GPU later if you need it.

This is always good advice. Follow it too long and you have a build as outdated and inept as mine.

Sounds like the 2500k should be good. Like others said though, that 6790's a bad buy, there's a 6870 that low and lots of 6850s at that price point. Might as well get more for what you're paying.

thanks for the advice, never really looked into AMD's too much. I have always been an intel person. But dual video processing onboard seems pretty good.
