The thing is with your suggestions to go to the Bloodrage and getting a better case, the price goes up. Im trying to spend around 1000-1100, and I would need a monitor too =\\ sorry for not mentioning that.

Unless I can still go with the bloodrage and a different case and still stay in that range

You can, but the case won't be as cool.

I think they need to help you find the best 1366 for a little less money - if that's even possible.

But, how do you feel about going with a Core2 instead of an i7? It would certainly bring the price down a little.

Would that be worth getting? Ive just heard a lot of good things about the 920 so I figured I should just get it. I guess I can always go for something cheaper. Wish I lived near a microcenter D: /cry

bump for any replies on going core 2 quad instead i7? I saw this combo in another thread, and it looks REALLY good, the only thing is is that I would want a WD Black instead of a Samsung HD.

Dude, don't get a core 2 quad! Get an i7. Unless you get a q9650, which is over $300, it isn't worth it.

Trust me, you will regret getting a core 2 system when you are having trouble reaching 4ghz and for a few dollars more you can get an i7.

An i7 is totally worth it, even if you have to get 3gb of ram, and a crappy case! I was think of selling my system and case just so I could afford to upgrade to i7 and run caseless.

I have a Core2 Duo, and it was easy for me to reach 4.0 GHz. I didn't even bother with taking baby steps. I just jumped right to 4.0 GHz using somebody else's settings, and then tweaked it from there and then stopped.

I certainly don't. But, depending on what you will do with your rig, you may not even really need anything more than a Core2 Duo. So, what are the things you will be doing with it?

Depending on what you will be doing with it, you can certainly spend a lot less money and still get something that's more than fast enough for your needs.

For example, my rig is really fast. Windows 7 gives my components the following Experience Index scores:
  • CPU: 7.0
  • RAM: 7.0
  • Graphics: 6.1
  • Gaming Graphics: 6.1
  • Primary HDD: 5.9
The scale is 1.0 to 7.9.

Don't listen to the "special people" who just starts spamming in here OMG NO GET THE i7!!! ITS LIKE OMG SO COOL!!!! yeah no.. go with what suits your budget go for a quad or even an amd 720 build that will be very powerful and leaves more room for higher components on the rest of your hardware.
