just go with an i7 2600 or the 500$ Socket 2011, I cant see a reason why anyone needs extreme edition CPU unless you havge the cash to burn, and want the bragging rights.
Take the big saving and put them into SSD's and GPU's
Thats how you make extreme Gaming Systems =) By Getting Cheaper Processors, putting them under quality Cooling, andverclocking the Snot out of them. Least thats how it used to be done, these days people have alot more money than me so i dunno..
Im still an nVidia fan personally, have not owned ati since 9600 xt. so whichever way you go, 79** or GTX 5** im sure you will be happy
I just dont see the benefit with Bulldozer currently, Do I think AMD will fix it someday, sure, will it be a new processor though? Most likely =)
Thing Pull wayyy to much power, and does not seem to achieve much with all that power draw.
Compared to Intels Offerings at least, the Bulldozer is just not stacking up. Unless I Guess if you have it Max Overclocked under water then it might be worth something, but then again, that Power Draw bothers me.
Agian, Sorry to all AMD Fanboys, but AMD has not been there for a hot minute.
