Not 100% sure, as i've not looked into the new amd's, but it seems too.

As an fyi, the onboard 4350 of the mobo will probably be better than the 2670.

Don't get 16GB. It does not have a purpose right now.

Why are you getting a HD2670? It's like totally last gen. Look at a HD6870 or something.

Why not get a WD for your storage drive? Get a Black drive if you are running apps off it.

Just a heads up, that eight core processor you're getting is a hyper threaded quad core. Its not that I don't like AMD, I just don't like their willingness to so blatantly lie to the public.

Oh, they just want their money, and will cut any corners to make it sound good.

Don't worry its a good processor, a fair mid-point between the 2500k and 2600k. Its not as good as the 2500k at gaming, and its not as good as the 2600k at multi-threaded tasks. Think of it like a jack of all trades, master of none sort of deal.

Of course with paton's post this one looks speculative now.
