*Just a suggestion, when reposting you could copy everything over and not just link it.

You could also ask a moderator to move the post to the correct category :)


Back to the topic on hand -


It's true that not many applications take advantage of higher RAM speed but I'd still get the ones with higher clocks if the price difference was small...'coz bragging rights.

You can bark like a dog, but that won't make you a dog.

You can act like someone you're not, but that won't change who you are.


Finished Crysis without a discrete GPU,15 FPS average, and a lot of heart


How I plan my builds -


For me I start with the "There's no way I'm not gonna spend $1,000 on a system."

Followed by the "Wow I need to buy the OS for a $100!?"

Then "Let's start with the 'best budget GPU' and 'best budget CPU' that actually fits what I think is my budget."

Realizing my budget is a lot less, I work my way to "I think these new games will run on a cheap ass CPU."

Then end with "The new parts launching next year is probably gonna be better and faster for the same price so I'll just buy next year."
