My System Specs

Default

This is really a good guide for really new beginners but usually I would follow depending on the user's requirements. For example if the user does not OC but does use software that uses a lot of threads then the Core i7 2600 would be good but in that particular list I couldn't even find a Core i5 2500 or a Core i7 2600 in that list.

The lower segment SB processors below the Core i5 2500K are not listed as well and they still outperform AMD's current offerings. As always with list like this the specs are rigid and no flexibility of customization. But there is a disclaimer stated that research should be made so I guess that this is still a good list that is compiled. Thumbs up to the person who took the time and trouble to at least give a basic guide to beginners.
