Ugh , I went through your whole thread and now I'm beginning to think I need to do a full cpu/gpu loop. damn you Lysrin ! haha. I'll have to start a build log once I get my hands on a cpu/mobo.
lol might as well jump in with both feet! Glad I could help!
I'll certainly follow the build log! And one other piece of advice: unless money is very tight... don't pay too much attention to the budget. It's too depressing! Just enjoy the ride!
