@=(V)=RocketJedi I did the same for my computer, but not everyone likes to do the research associated with picking the best parts. This article was not for people like you and me. =-P

check out the xeons they may be cheaper and offer the same performance that is what im considering. The problem is my i5 4690k is still insanely fast and out performs most i7's in game benches.
