Try this link!

:no: the site is not loading for me

Links are working now but something is not right with what is showing on the page and definitely the amount that is shows that you have spent Grand Total (pre-tax) $1,149.91 your link

The amount spent changed again Grand Total (pre-tax) $0.00 :wacko:

Ok..

It is a 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-4670K 3.4GHz LGA 1150 Processor and Asus Z87-A (SLI) LGA 1150 ATX.

combo for $265

I'm interested in RAW to JPEG conversions, as well as some light audio encoding work so I am attracted to the single thread/single core performance of the 4670

Well you see I have trouble making decisions so I was poking around and the intel 4620 grabbed my attention for the single core performance.... haha...

I gather that you still would go the 8320 route that I had on pcpartspicker?

Microcenter also has the AMD 8350 with the ASUS M5A97 for $235

You can change your mind as often as you like as long as you are happy with the outcome :thumbsup:

I would not try and sway you one way or another towards AMD or Intel btw.

That is a very good price for the CPU, are you aware that it is In-store Pickup only

I guess I had seen that and then kind of forgotten!! Thanks for the reminder. Really would like to stick to the $300 range. The original 8320 page I put together is still looking pretty nice to me! It's $10 off through Wednesday so I may have to consider pulling the trigger.

Alright I'm feeling crazy. Realizing I don't upgrade very often and can afford to throw a little extra in and go for an 8350.

Pretty psyched about the current prices on this. what do you think?

The mobo reviews make me nervous on newegg for my choice there

Thanks for the ideas. One other thought- the 8350 will take considerably more power than the intel. Can my built-in PSU handle it do you think? I know 500W should be plenty- but it was a built in unit so I'm not sure of the quality?

The 500W Antec PSU will be fine with the 8350, the increase in the voltage draw will be minimal btw.

Ok great! I think I'm decided on the 8350 then. Just going to watch prices. Looking ahead a couple weeks- what is necessary for the switch? So far, I've gathered:
1. BACKUP EVERYTHING!
2. Uninstall drivers from device manager
3. Hardware switch
4. Attempt to boot up like normal?
