intel core 2 duo is the best right now

and i really wanna stress how you can build your pc right now for 7500 bucks just to have it be only decent in almost a year.

use at the most around 3k and use the rest for something else or put it in a savings account

Ryzen 7 1700 / Gigabyte AB35
Deepcool Captain 240EX
32GB HyperX DDR4 / Corsair 750watt
Red Devil 480 / Corsair R270
Sandisk 960GB SSD / 2x Seagate 8tb, 2x WD 4TB

if u want prebuilt then thats ur choice. i would reccomend build it urself. wait for quad core. and get 8800gtx in sli. and do not get the sonly blu ray roms. blu ray is gonna lose the format war. if anything get an hd dvd player.

MacBook 2.2GHz Santa Rosa | 120GB HDD | 4GB ram
Intel C2D E6300 @ 3.2GHz | 4GB ram | 880GB total HDD space | Gigabyte P965-DS3 | eVGA 8800GTS 640mb | Corsair HX 520 | Audigy 2 ZS platnium | Antec 900
