So I have decided to jump to the 'evil' side by ditching the 45nm AMD platform for a 32nm Intel. This is going to be just an Update! At least thats what the CFO approved. So out goes the PII 940BE/AM2+ Gigabyte MOBO + DDR2 RAM and the Vista (finally!) The rest will stay the same. Will be adding an SSD for the OS - WIN 7 Pro The system will be used for internet/word processing/ audio,video encoding/photo PP using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Minimal Gaming. So here's what I know I am getting: CPU - SandyB i72600K Here's what I need recs for: MOBO - P67 based? Something I can overclock easily with. Was looking at this - GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3P LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/... Any reason to go with UD5/7 for more $$? Any other better options I should consider. RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ... seems to be the consensus choice. GPU - ATI/Nvidia - 460 vs 470 vs 570 or 6950 - havent kept up, but I remember Nvidia being ahead in the race currently. Dont need the fastest. Just a sweet spot product. Also lower power consumption will be preferred since this computer is almost always on. Thanks for reading folks!
