Good Luck!

At 1200GHz I would not expect you to bottleneck anything.

Budget - AMD wins hands down.

If you can wait, Intel's Haswell is around the corner, might be worth waiting for it.

Thanks.

I though you were on a budget so I would've looked at the "standard" P8Z77-V (not even the Pro).
The WiFi module also has bluetooth as well, but I can understand if you don't care about that at all. But IMHO, the sabertooth is pretty overpriced for what it offers.

On the asus website it's very easy to compare 2 products, I suggest you give it a look. But either way, if you like the Sabertooth that much, go for it. Otherwise you'll just end up with that "I should have bought..." feeling thumb.gif .

(Also, PS/2 on the "standard" boards. I would give up 2 USB for a PS2 port in a hearthbeat on my Deluxe tongue.gif . If you don't have a mechanical keyboard then it doesn't matter)

Haswell, may be worth waiting for, but it is likely to depend allot on open CL, they also aren't likely to change much in regards to x86 performance, there isn't much left to gain. Haswell is more about igp gpgpu then it is about x86, even intel sees that the future is fusion. I'd bet them refine the fpu though, that would not surprise me one bit. The uarch pre-release articles look encouraging, but don't expect much outside of power efficiency and increased gpu gpgpu and igp gains.

Intel's Haswell won't have HSA features, however.

actually, with the way intel does the ring bus memory on the current IGP cpu's, they are already a little bit hsa'ish

Okay... I know I said I was decided on the i7. But after seeing the price difference on my bill. I realized that having $150 bucks left is far to little. I intend to buy myself an xbox with some other stuff this Christmas to play with friends. And its not do-able with that kind of upgrade...

And the other billions of things people spend money on.

I think Im going with the AMD again.

I KNOW. I KNOW. I KNOW> INTEL IS BETTER.

No arguement there. For single thread stuff and the majority of games Intel wins in benchmarks etc.

But I've come to realize, AMD isn't all taht bad. The difference in performance between the two is so goddamn small. I cannot justify spending almost 300$ more. When I get get a NCIX AMD build for 500 and something...

Even getting an i5 means 100$ more... Like seriously...

besides DOA's I have hard time finding negative reviews on Newegg.ca. I even found what I wanted. Someone who streams at 1080p with it.

Im going to live stream, and record while I play games with this thing. Even if Intel can do it better. AMD means I will have a nice chunk of cash left over.

It's either the MSI or the ASUS.

They both have crossfire... They both support the CPU. And they are both blue/black... Sounds good to me. And very cheap compared to a 225-250$ Intel board.
