New Build. Need Advice. i5/i7?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so im getting a new PC, coz im going abroad..

im planning to "standard" overclock it as soon as i get the PC..
use it most for high-end gaming and video editting. other than that probably just for daily use.
hope you guys can give some advice

here's the specification.

CPU : i5 760 / i7 870
Motherboard : EVGA P55 FTW 200
HSF : Corsair H50
RAM : Corsair CMT4GX3M2A2000C8 (2x2GB) DDR3
Graphic Card : EVGA GTX 460 1GB SC EE
HDD : Seagate Baracuda 1TB and 500MB
PSU : Corsair HX-750W
Optical Drive : Samsung Blu-Ray DVD Combo Drive
Case : Cooler Master HAF-932

thanks b4 guys..

PS: still not sure of which CPU should i get.. i heard that i7 860 is better than i7 870.. is it true? or should i stick with 870?

get the 860 dont waste extra money for more stock clocks.

and u may need more ram since ur video editing. or add 4 more later on.

everything looks perfect

EDIT: make sure the barracuda's are 7200.12 models not the 7200.11, they have problems will die on you.

or get the samsung f3's fast drives
