From what i can gather, sandy bridge is what you want?
i'm on a bit of a budget, but i do want the best bang for buck. So i'm thinking an intel core i5 2500k is probably a good bet.
or is it worth shelling out the extra for a 2600k?
anyone got some good motherboard suggestions? and ram while i'm at it?
I'm currently on an old C2D of some variety, but i have upgraded the video card to a GTX 570
so far i'm thinking
intel core i5 2500k
16gb kingston hyperx 1600
You can get the 2500K for 204.99 @ newegg. Have to hurry, sale ends tomorrow.
