Default Re: Help me build a $2000 gaming Rig

Just my 2 cents , but the 1356 socket is dead in the water, personally i would go AM3 and 6 core Phenom, there's a lot of life in that format.Buldozer will be a long fairly soon , so the upgrade path is taken care of for some time.
Even Sandy bridge seems to be a waste of time unless you are going to chuck the chip into a laptop. What else is the point of an onboard Graphic chip. Anyone with a gaming rig is going to Install a decent graphics card. Amd is my recommendation.
