Some pc builds

These are some numbers for the cpu/mb/ram/video assuming all else will be equal.  The AMD Phenom II X4 945 is available again.  It’s a great CPU that allows for ECC RAM, if one is willing to spend 2x as much for ECC RAM these days.  Intel Sandy Bridge system will be much quicker, though I am considering waiting for Z68 motherboards to become available as that is only a month or so away.

  • AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz (Deneb) 95W
  • 4x4GB Crucial DDR3 1333 ECC Unbuffered
  • $554.96
  • Intel i5-2500K 3.3GHz (Sandy Bridge) 95W
  • ASUS P8H67-M EVO (REV 3.0)
  • 4x4GB DDR3 1333 (G.Skill but others are comparable)
  • $532.29
