The issue now is almost any processor on the market is more than fast enough for every day computer use. If you play newer games or have some other special requirements then we need to know about it. What is your budget and what hardware do you need? For instance do you currently have a modern monitor you want to continue using?
Hi, I am building my own custom rig, and at this point I am trying to pick out parts.
Right now I am looking at trying to find a cpu.
I want to use this rig for mainly Gaming (Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3), however I also want to use it for some photo editing and video editing as well.
So my question is what do I want to look for in the cpu?
What speed do I want?
How many Cores?
things like that
