I'm wanting to build a desktop computer that will serve as:
A)Super Gaming Platform
C)Media Editing Station
NOTE: size or profiling is not an issue, custom cases can be made.
FIRST THINGS FIRST!!!! Intel i7 processors??? Is it really 8 cores or is it a quad processor with virtual cores that result from hyperthreading?
Is it really that much 'faster' or is it just better 'multi-tasking'?
Please explain these processors to me and the big difference between i3 : i5 : i7
I need a good recommendation on a motherboard. If I can figure that part out the rest will be easy.
I want a good processor; I want to run 2 graphics cards (need HDMI, DVI and VGA capability); I want to have the capability of having 2 Hard drives so I'm gonna need a board that will support that along with all of my other rediculous demands; I want atleast 8GB RAM (DDR3 or DDR5);
I think that's all the big stuff.
Again, if anyone could reccomend a board that could support all that hardware I would greatly appreciate it.
