Hey! Thanks for the replies!
The reason i was wanting to go with a 6x core is because I'm looking for longevity i guess. 8 years down the road i want to have a computer that's still top of the line with some basic upgrades.
I also do a lot of graphic design work and 3d modeling, so i was kinda wanting a rig that is mostly for gaming but i could also tinker around with 3ds max and maya. Maybe mudbox or zbrush.
My budget is 2,000 ruffly, and i did the math, and that build i posted is about 2k, though i havent taken shipping into the whole math bit yet. (Was hoping to work out a deal w/ newegg, since they are awesome like that)
I'm kind of new about overclocking as well, but i know there are guides out there, and plenty of forumers who could lend an ear or a hand XD
Anyways! Keep up the advice train
and thank you all!
Ps- On a side note, if i were to want to look into schooling for computer hardware and general computer building stuff, where would i look? I'm an animation major, but i love looking into computer stuff! Getting more under your belt never hurts either as far as schooling goes. I know the basics somewhat, but i want to know more
