I am still looking for my Dream PC...
I need some help on choosing the Processor... Heard the Phenom is very good value for money.... Anyone has either of the Processor...
How would you grade them??

I am also going for the NZXT Phantom Case.. Any opinion on this case?? I am looking for a flashy case this time..

Personally, I would go for the Corsair Obsidian 700D :
Monolithic, but an awsome system builders case. Hot swap drive from the front too.

Or the Coolermaster Sniper Storm (black eddition)
Amazing cooling performance, ideal for overclocking & looks the bussiness!

As for the CPU, very few things make of multiple cores. I would go for an i5 or an i7.
I bought an i5 and a Corsair h50 watercooling kit (~£50-£60) , and run it overclocked at 3.6Ghz.
Performs amazingly, and I could probably push it further, but after about 3Ghz, the gaming performance increase was fairly minimal.

The H50 wasn't that good, been beaten by some air coolers (although better than most still), the H70 is out imminently though and so far looks quite a bit better.

True, but I was a bit pushed for space, and the internal airflow wasn't that great in my HTPC, so the H50 was a good fit. Verry happy with it TBH. CPU rarely goes above 55 degrees, even after lots of BFBC2 :)
Point being, if i was building again, I would probably go for another i5 with a good cooler and overclock it rather than buying an i7.

I would like to OC to above 4GHz..
I would like to do some video editing work... so wonder 6 core is better?
What program do you use?
I like to play games.. Would like to power Star carft 2 in full glory.
Otherwise, I use cyberlink or vegas for editing..
I have a trend of changing about every 3-4 years.. Like to power dual monitor..
Will also get 1x 27 inch moinitor
