So ill settle this argument by showing you that you can build a potent gaming system for less that $500, with an i5 Ivy Bridge. On this machine you will be able to play PS2 all freaking day, and stream, record whatever the hell you want without a problem and you won't have to be fooling around arguing w/ us about i3's or Phenoms, or FX or Trintiy or whatever else AMD is still selling. The i5 will probably still be bad ass CPU 3 years from now, and next spring when AMD comes out w/ 8000 Series GPU's and you get your Tax return back or save some scrap up. You can easily pop that HD7770 and put an HD8870 in the your box, and sell the Old GPU w/o having to remove more than about 4 screws and a power connector.

Now THIS is a system i can get behind. Also its not that i wanted amd, its that i wanted Atleast a quad core. This build takes the cake, and with that 7770 ( which is very close to a 6850 in performance) and a i5 this build can hold its own in every game out there. So thank you sir for sharing this very cheap and powerful build with the planetside community.

personally i'd stick with the 650TI because it is Nvidia, and PS2 runs better with Nvidia, and it has better drivers, but yeah, great and cheap build! can't believe how cheap that GPU is!

Yah ,its as cheap as a 6770, but gets the performance of a 6850. Not a bad deal by any standards.
