This is why I think AMD is better for gaming than Intel. I know Intel have higher performance CPU, but AMD offer them at a price that allow you to put the extra 100$ you save on a more powerful GPU that will beat intel in any benchmark related to gaming. Don't get me wrong, I am not an AMD fanboy, I have in my own computer and intel 3570k and I love it, but when you are on a budget like this rig, you can achieve greater gaming potential with AMD since the GPU is about 80% of gaming performance! Have a nice day!
You should also take a look at this, its kind of suprising! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu8Sekdb-IE
I made this build for a friend who wanted to get the highest setting possible in every game. His budget was around 1000$. I know I don't have any cpu cooler other than the stock one. But I dont plan on overclocking since it won't be necessary at all with this GPU.
Sorry for my english.
