ok its that time again, looking into building a new gaming pc. I have been doing research and have really liked what the i7 2600 (or 2600k if i can catch a good sale, over clocking isnt a big thing to me) but a fellow swears up and down the i7 900 series are a better CPU to go with. I like the idea of the 2600s ability to help with graphics rendering. But cannot find out one way or anouther the exact pros and cons of these 2 series. cooling shouldnt be an issue as i plan on getting a full tower case, something like the antec DF-85 or in win dragon rider lol I am going to be running a decent gpu something in the 2 gig 256 bit range and probubly nvidia but if i can get a better deal on ati im fine with that too (eventually running dual as money allows)
basicly im very open to suggestions at this time, so was hopeing to get some good ideas on what cpu to go with and why. im still leaning towards the 2600 but if the 900 series are a by far better choice then let me know.
Thanks again! as always you guys are awsome!
