I'm building a budget PC, but not really sure which parts to buy. Also not sure whether I should roll with intel or AMD, and Nvidia or ATI. My budget is 830€-ish.
My intel option: http://www.alternate.nl/html/configurator/builder/structure/sendLoad.html?id=133241&kind=pcBuilder
AMD option: http://www.alternate.nl/html/configurator/builder/structure/sendLoad.html?id=135109&kind=pcBuilder
Also what do you know about the Club 3D Radeon HD 7870XT jokerCard? Or should I just get a normal 7870? (nvidia equivalent is too expencive)
Could also buy http://www.alternate.nl/html/product/ALTERNATE/Upgrade_Kit_ASRock_970_Extreme3_-_FX-8120_-_8_GB/998152/?tk=7&lk=4118 instead of loose parts.
That upgrade kit has a FX8120 though (8cores), but I understand most games only use a few cores anyway?
thoughts? advise? all appreciated:)
