What logic are you referring to? Trying to help him pick the best performing parts he can afford within his budget?
There's nothing at all wrong with AMD, or Bulldozer. But face it, Sandy Bridge is faster, especially at gaming, and even more so when you start getting into higher end setups. Why limit his options right out of the gate with something inferior?
If he already had a good and solid AMD board, I'd tell him right now to go get an FX6100 or 8120. But that's not the case, he wants a full build. So why not offer him the best he can afford, rather than mediocre but workable?

So, with that said, im looking for a cpu that will allow me to do some epic duel monitor gaming, And i would like to crossfire/sli later on with a motherboard that has alot of room.
If anyone can post up some ideas, i'll take a look at them.
And if youre still lurking, post up your suggusted rig build for me? and ill see what i can do.
Thank you guys.
Here's what I can come up with.....Asus P8Z68 Proi5 2500k2 of these sticks of RAM (this is not a kit, you have to buy 2 seperate at amazon)Rosewill 530w PSU
This is just a few things to get you started. PIck a nice 23" 1080p panel, a nice keyboard and mouse, and your hard drives obviously that you want. Use whatever is left for the GPU. There should be at the very LEAST $200 left for the GPU, which you can pick up a 6970 off geeks.com brand new for $199.99.
I'll take another look again in the morning. I'm headed to bed right now, so I do apologize for not seeing the build all the way through. I'm positive we can build you high end performance for your budget.Edited by pioneerisloud - 8/20/12 at 1:57am
