My System Specs


I have everything else that is not listed on my list. I picked the i3 because I was hoping that this would last a very long time, and I picked the PSU to account for future upgrades. Also, the 1156 platform would allow me to upgrade later on. Though I guess an AM3 board with an Athlon chip would also be very upgradable in the future, even more so than the 1156 platform... Western Digital is kind of my personal preference, so I'll most likely spend a couple extra bucks for a WD than a Seagate or Hitachi.

Thanks for the AMD suggestions. I will take those into consideration before purchasing. How is the overclocking on the AMD side of things though? Does anyone have some numbers they'd like to share?
