So i read your post in the uber value thread. A few questions;
Why would you suggest the 3750k for an extra $15 over the 2500k, especially if i have no experience overclocking (but intend to)?
What's the big difference between the Asrock Extreme4 and the Gigabyte board you're suggesting (i couldn't see any differences apart from price)?
I changed down to 8GB and switched to the corsair vengence series (2x4gb).Also with the 7850, i intended to go nvidia as whenever i browse forums i see a constant stream of **** about AMD drivers not being up to speed with the nvidia counterparts, although the 7850 does seem to perform better (i would get the gigabyte OC edition i think). Is there usually problems with AMD drivers?
