Which of these 3 base build would be best for purely gaming in your opinions. Nothing else besides gaming is a factor here.

Any thoughts as to why you picked what you picked would be awesome. I am thinking the i7-920 build, but i don't really know my stuff to well.

The 920 would be real nice but the PII would be plenty of power and would cost less allowing you a bigger budget for gpu.

If your budget is not a question then go i7 920.
If it is in question go PII or the third build with a i5 750 instead if you want to go Intel.

What gpu are you planning on?

The dominators are great ram but overpriced for what you get. You could definately save some cash by going with something like the OCZ golds ddr3 1600.

Oh i don't even think i am ordering any. I am just curious mostly. I got an offer on my current PC, but i am not counting on it panning out. If i can sell my current PC for what my friends friend offered, then i will be ordering something new for sure. Honestly though i give it a 10% chance that the sale will go through.
