Re: Need help for my first build.
I thought the reason you were posting is so you could receive our best recommendations for the amount of money you are spending?
Why is it so important that you have a low energy consuming processor? You're willing to spend enough money to go with an i7 build yet you're being saddled with an E8400, which is a good processor, don't get me wrong, but in that price range, you need to change it up.
As for your blatant disregard for AMD products, you're just plain wrong. No offense to your uncle, but he either had other reasons for the computers going wrong (like off brand motherboards, defective parts, etc) than the processor, or he did AMD machines back in the day, and that really has no bearing on AMD today.
But hey, what do we know? We're just people who eat, sleep and breath computer tech stuff.
You will find with that sort of attitude, most people won't want to help you.
