But too short on the warranty. And if you are gaming, why the i7? You've read this before.
"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "
So it's a safe bet the GPU will be well fed.
If you know something better than this please share brand and specs or at least brand name. I want a great computer for web design school and projects, gaming of course and hours of internet use each day. All Windows based possible competitors welcome, not interested in Apple.
