Unfortunately, the AMD's would normally been a good corner cut but the problem is games just don't utilize 6 cores etc. yet in any apprieciative fashion. and hmm, just double check with what you end up doing that the power supply there is ok.. they often state a certain max. watt output but it is known in the industry, those numbers are very 'variable' by themanufacturers... so make sure you got the juice needed.
Please stop using "..." please! We know what a period is, we don't need 3.
Actually, AMD CPU's are as good as Intels. For gaming, it's other factors that matter more than just the CPU. No
game IIRC, yet uses the 6 cores. It will take the programmers awhile to catch up to this new technology.
The PSU depends on more than just the wattage. Wattage is just a broad view of how it performs.
I would suggest a SSD to anyone that can afford it. Yes, It does cost a bit for 30GB, but the boot time is awesome. Processing time is also slick. Just please install your games and intense programs (Photoshop) on your storage drive.
