The best rig for $1000 is going to be a gaming computer or a video editing machine. You could get a way overkill "general purpose" computer for $500. Like he said, you are blowing money into the wind if you don't plan on gaming.

Bingo. Your building a beastly gaming rig at this point. You should drop the i5 2500k for something cheaper, you don't need the king oc gaming CPU's. If I where in OP's situation I would think about an AMD APU build to be honest with on board graphics. Add in a Hyper 212+ and 8 gigs of RAM. If you want to go spify use a small SSD and you would have a pretty nice rig that would even work for light gaming. If what little gaming you do require's more GPU you can add a second 6550 or what ever it is for $100 later. Would be a much cheaper solution that would work great.

OP if you're not gaming then just get an i3/AMD system. no need power you won't use.

EDIT: Take the money you save and buy an SSD instead, you'll notice a tangible performance increase.
post #64 of 96
Yeah if theres no gaming get something else.... My vote for the A6 3650, it can be found for $105 and has more then enough power for general use, plus the gpu is more then powerful enough to cut though non gaming graphics stuff like movies and what not. It should also have enough power for entery level gaming too if you even get interested. If your worried about longitivty get the 70k version and overclock it in the future. Really thou, if your a gamer the pc (and in that price range by a long shot) kicks the xboxs ass by like x1000

For $500 you could build a pc that kicks an xbox by massive amounts. Sell your xbox and game on your pc you wont regret it.

You can only load Chrome/IE/What ever so fast.... A dual core can surf the internet very fast. even with basic applications its not needed at all. Total waste of money in fact. Now if your trying to drive 2 nice GPU's or want an AMAZING gaming experience, by all means get the i5 lol. This thread is a testament to how overrated the i5 has become here.....

I disagree except in gaming and encoding my htpc with an e-350 is not noticable slower then my sig. A6 is a sweet spot
