I'm about to embark on system building for software development usage and I'm playing only one game - Civ5, any particular recommendation about chipset/mobo in mind? Intel based looking kind of pricey but I'm wondering what kind of AMD chipset I should target. Major thing is ability to handle heavy load of multiple MS .NET Visual Studio instances open at the same time. Also at least 2 monitor support is must. Thanks

If you tell us your maximum budget and in which country you will be purchasing the parts we will put you a list of hardware together built around the 8 core AMD FX-8350 Piledriver which is a beast of a CPU http://www.aria.co.u...2&rqcType=c#rqc

Can you also tell us if you have any parts that you can bring to the build such as mouse, keyboard etc.

What operating system do you intend using?
If a Microsoft OS unless you have a full retail installation disk and a product key that is not in use on another computer** you will need to allow for this in your budget.

**Unless you have a Volume License Agreement.
