Re: Best buy or build?
Welcome to Tech-Forums, Tokyo DK!!
For the most part, it's better to build on your own. Plus, the knowledge you gain from building on your own. It's also easier to upgrade compared to a pre-built. And since you mentioned overclocking, you wouldn't be able to do that with pre-built machines anyway.
The i7s are the top of the heap right now. 900 series I guess you would call them.
Overclocking does make your computer faster if you get a good 60%+ overclock on the processor.
The heatsink absorbs and dissipates the heat from the CPU to cool it down. And if you've seen a processor without one, then whoa...
kmote beat me to it.
