Everything I've read says I don't need what i7 offers for gaming, maybe running a few virtual distros while tinkering.
It seems that the 680 v the 7970 varies depending on test/game... but I should be able to run most things on high.
16gb of ram may seem overkill but I plan on, when not gaming, allocating a few gb to each virtual distro.... since the type I have selected is out of stock, will likely switch with 2 more gskills.
Will add a blue-ray reader as well.
I think I can save on the power supply by getting bronze instead of platinum, but in my current job I change so many freakin power supplies out perhaps it may be worth it for the quality? The juice is a little higher than needed but does provided upgradibility/expandability.
Thoughts? If your going to leave an ass comment and then be like, 'and thus I'm not commenting', keep it to yourself please. Looking for constructive criticism, not an asshat remark
