Hi all!
I have $900 for this.
I will use this for OCing, Gaming and Folding.
I think I will use SandyBridge


Thanks

For what, exactly?

Are you asking for recommendations, then?

Not sure if you're serious, but that's how I use my PC too... OC'd & gaming while folding

OP, with that budget, you're looking at a 2500k + gtx560

Going for ATX or mATX form factor?
If you are looking at gaming, go with a Sandybridge i5 2500k.
I'm a fan on my Asus Board, so either the P8P67 Pro or -M Pro.
I'd probably suggest a GTX 460 for your graphics card if you are looking at a budget of 850 bucks.

LOL, when I first read that, I thought of the typical Xzibit Pimp-my-ride pic.

OnTopic: SB, i5-2500 can be found for $199, and a comparable Mobo when the re-release should be, $175-$220. Looking at about $50-80 for ram(4G typical for that price). Graphics, you can pick up a 560ti for about $260, or a 6950 for close to the same. Which puts you at the $720-750 total. Of course if you reuse your old pc parts such as case, Psu, etc. You'll save more. Nvm, you'll need a PSU, quality 450-550 would be fine.

BTW, I've been price shopping. And a AMD PHx6 system pretty much costs the same as a SB.

Case, optical drive, OS etc.
