But if you are not then you should probably go for a 2500K build. They are better for gaming.

Specs are OK, but WTH is an "XtremeGear" power supply? This is OCN. We build our own computers here and encourage you to do the same. It will be cheaper and better. Also, note that the motherboard that will be in your system is a "D" variant - not the "UD" - so this board will be less ideal for overclocking. I'm guessing XtremeGear is trying to cut costs here...

CPU: AMD-FX-8150 3.60 GHz Eight-Core AM3+ CPU 8MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology


Cooling Fan: Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan

Motherboard: GigaByte GA-970A-D3 AMD 970 Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard w/ On/Off Charge, 7.1 Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, SATA-III RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe X16, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI

Memory: 8GB (2GBx4) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module

Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 16X PCIe Video Card

Power Supply Upgrade: 800 Watts - XtremeGear Gaming Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready

Hard Drive: 2TB (2TBx1) SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Hard Drive)
This guy is a few fries short of a happy meal. Notice in his original post he wants to run Skyrim on max and WoW on max. One single card isn't going to do that.

A minimum of xfire or SLI would be needed. and I am taking an educated guess that it would have to be 2x 6970s or 2x 580s to do that and not crap themselves. Just my 2 cents.

Not sure if troll, because of bad grammar and false information.

Ha good one! I wish it where so but it simply is not.

[For some reason I feel obliged to feed troll]Follow the advice of the others and pick up a cheaper 2500k that will perform better.

Dude, Surpassing the i7? In what might I ask? Look up any benchmark. I'm not saying AMD is awful, but they really messed up with this BD.

Stop drinking the Kool-Aid Brah, you aren't gonna see little green men, and BD isn't going to beat out i7, or the new SB-E processors.

I'm running a Macbook Pro, Quad Core 2.4Ghz i7, 4 GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1GB. I'm looking at either FC or PP for video editing, capturing from the soon to be released BlackMagic Intensity Extreme and possibly some basic graphics creation. I have some experience with Vegas Pro on Windows (which I cannot find on Mac and am not willing to use Boot Camp) and iMovie. I feel I need to move on from iMovie as I think I've reached the extent of it's capabilities. Which one is the more useful program for my circumstance and hopefully will allow me to grow and learn with it?

Thanks in advance.

Back on topic...2500k all the way...there simply isn't any justification for buying the 8150, especially at its current price point

Not true, with my current setup I'm able to run WoW maxed. I'm talking everything maxed. I never dip below 30fps and my card sucks haha. Skyrim I have no idea yet.
