Default 1366 or 1155 build? Please guide me.

Hi, I live in Australia so unfortunately I cannot use Newegg but have been thinking about putting together a new build and cannot decide on which architecture.

I originally put together this 1366 build for a total of $1699: http://i.imgur.com/CmWsB.png

Then I thought maybe it was better to go with an 1155 build for the extra ram. It came to $1759: http://i.imgur.com/pZtXe.png


So if someone could help recommend me what I should go for I would greatly appreciate it. Also if any parts look like really bad choices please tell me but keep in mind I can only really purchase from pccasegear.com

Thank you

P.S. I have a mouse, keyboard, monitors, OS etc already.

For the $60 difference go SB.

Way better.

Ok, thanks for the input guys. I'm not 100% sure whether they have faulty or non faulty in stock, they simply say on the product page that there is a fault, intel know about it etc etc. I will make sure.

Anyway in conclusion, if I am to proceed with the Sandy Bridge Build or there any components that need swapping out?

Thank you

One thing, I'd get a large SSD...my 60gb is almost full already - I wish I had probably 90gb instead of 60...just something to think about. (win7 takes up like 25gb)

I wouldn't go much larger than 90Gig on a SDD. Do like you were with a larger Black drive for all your non speed needing programs, and you will be okay.

Unless you run 4 or 5 games at a time.
