    It is indeed a bizarre market when people buy expensive "Feature rich" mainboards to support expensive cpu`s with reduced instruction sets..

    It depends on your objectives though. and how you implement virtual machines, 32gb though.. serious business.

    That only goes for the Intel side of the market though, too bad people don't really have a choice in that regard when it comes to this price bracket.

    what is killing me in the cpu choice is that it has an intel vga....and 4 cores only ..and 2 memory channels ...

    he should rethink his pc and goes for a 2011 lga with a 4820 or 4930 cpu

    that is not more than a year old....
    plus an ups , plus an hauppauge or avermedia tv / pvr card for video input ; [the h727 3d with a [second] 3d monitor and a nvidia may be 6x0 or 750 ] [touchscreen is cool , i have one near bed for tv mail.... there are plenty of them for $400 on ebay : http://www.ebay.fr/sch/i.html?_sacat=0&_from=R40&_nkw=hp touchsmart 600&LH_PrefLoc=2&_sop=16 same size/price as your display

    the 610 : http://www.ebay.fr/itm/HP-TOUCHSMAR...0743751779?pt=Desktop_PCs&hash=item5afa247c63

    you can use the hp 600 as a simple display : it has a hdmi in + composite . that needs pc to be on , it is also having ubuntu touchscreen driver [ at least someone made it , i used it once , best os is win7 plus 8 Go ram ]
