I am going to build a new computer, and i was thinking about getting an intel core i5 3550 or a 3750K. From what i've learned, both have VT-x instructions, but the K version lacks VT-d. Since I do use virtualization software, and I think that a merely 100 MHz speed difference is almost nothing, I was thinking the 3550 was a better deal for me. I'd really appreciate some comments based on your experience here.
By the way, there is no 3570 (no K) available here, and the 3550 is about 30€ cheaper.
Also, i want to ask if it is worth to pay the extra money for a Z77 chipset based motherboard instead of a H77 one. I do not plan to overclock and i don't think i'll go crossfire o sli anyway.
Another question is about SSD, there are so many around ... i read some positive reports about the Samsung 830 series, an a friend of mine told me his crucial m4 series was even better. What do you think.
Finally, I have a 24 inch 1920x1080 monitor, so, is the radeon 7850 enough, or should i go for 7870/7950?
I wouldn't like to spend more than 300€ on a video card if possible.
Thanks in advance!
Yes, that's plenty of graphics card for gaming at 1080p.jokinin wrote:I have a 24 inch 1920x1080 monitor, so, is the Radeon HD7850 enough?
