I wouldn't recommend an i7 for you. Go with a socket 775 and save a boat load of money. I would say you should go with, at max, an E8400. Though someone may recommend a quad-core. Lemme look up some parts.


EDIT: By the way, do you need everything? Monitor, case, keyboard, mouse, etc?

I would recommend the i7 for heavy gamers or for people that do loads of crazy work and have to multitask a whole lot of programs. It's insanely fast, and the processor is cheap for the performance, but with the cost of the mobo and the RAM, it gets to be over 1200 bucks, especially if you need a monitor and other stuff.

The E8400 blows the pants off of that processor, but if you want to grab a quad core, I'll look at your options...still looking up parts, almost got them together.

By the by, I recommend getting your monitor off of newegg, they have some pretty sweet deals on good size monitors.
