Hey guys, now i know i been spamming the f**k outta tb atm lol got lots to say at present i guess xD

So my next random topic is pc building, i will have around 1200-1400 to spend on a new pc and i've picked everything apart from cpu and mobo as i dont know whats best?

I plan on useing mainly as a studio pc but would like to play the odd game on it too.

I have narrowed it down too two but idk whats best hence coming to ask the more clever than me xD

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-430-AS&groupid=701&catid=1903&subcat= AMD Mobo

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-397-IN&groupid=701&catid=6&subcat=1859 Intel cpu

As usual AMD stuff tends to cost less, but if single-core performance is what you really care about, I'd say the i7 is the best choice you can do.

But, if you're going to use it primarly as a studio PC, then the eight-core(!?!?#@) AMD Bulldozer is more than enough for your needs and you'll supposedly be able to run any game at max graphics quality with absolutely no problems, given that the rest of the components are similar in performance. And you seem to have a clearer idea regarding the motherboard (I feel the same way about intel mobos, btw), so I'd say go for the AMD CPU+mobo.

Thx for your reply xD i was kinda leaning to AMD but thought its must'nt be as good as its cheaper lol, but 8 cores sounds fkin amazing lol

I would go for an Intel CPU at the current time, the 2500K/2600K or even 2700K are still better then AMD's bulldozer. For the video card I would go for some HD6990 or 70 :)

lol paul i only got 1200 the gpu alone is 500+ :| Besides I dont really need a good gpu was just gonna get a half decent cheapy one like the HIS ATI Radeon HD 6870 Only 150 :)

I've tryed to find somthing on google and youtube that compares them in a tottaly neutral view, all i found was fan boys from either side so im non the wiser.

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-397-IN Is this one as good as it? or better? and why? And what mobo is best to get with it?

I like the look of this one but idk if its compatible, (and yes i go by how they look lol) http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-056-AK&tool=3

May aswell put the other componants if it helps with mobo options.

The only thing I miss is a CPU cooler and perhaps an SSD.
Also make sure that your mobo has the right socket. And enough room for everything.

Now why do you need 12 GB's of ram? :)

Ah yes was looking at the Coolermaster v8 cooler (looks nice) Need 12gig too run the music softwere, it takes alot of cpu+ram power to run music programs and recording softwere at once to get it with low latency :)
