Anandtech Bench is a good place to look if you wanna compare CPU's and GPU's.

Intel i5/7
Both the current gen AMD / nVidia cards are good. AMD's Mantle API shows promise.
Windows 7 x64

For the vid card might wanna check this one out: PNY GeForce GTX 780 OC XLR8 and the review of it here: http://realhardwarereviews.com/pny-gtx-780-xlr8-oc/

It runs as fast as the TI's but is priced much better.

Pretty much, but I would go into bios first and check boot priority. Also don't fidget with any overclocking until you have a stable system at stock settings and I would run a round of prime 95 at stock settings as you can get a bad component that can cause random crashes etc.
169  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: New rig on: January 28, 2014, 05:50:33 PM
Well if optical is before HD in the bios and the HD is bootable you should get a prompt to hit a key to boot from optical if a bootable CD/DVD is in the drive, if you dont press said key in a few secs it will generally just boot from the next avail device in the list.

171  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: New rig on: January 28, 2014, 02:56:42 PM
Depends on if there is already an OS on the HD you are using and what the boot order is set to in the BIOS.

The Hyper 212 EVO is the cooler I use, effective and quiet.
173  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Intel i5 vs i7 on: January 25, 2014, 11:04:39 AM
The main diff between the i5 and i7 is the i7 has hyper threading which will make it appear to windows as if it has 8 cores, it really only has four (unless you are talking about the extreme edition which has 6). Unless you just have the extra money to throw at it I'd go with the i5.

I'd go with the K version of the cpu, they are unlocked and easily overclock quite a bit on air cooling. My i5 2500k (3.3ghz) runs stable at 4.2ghz with just air cooling.

Do you just overclock in the bios? I've never tried to OC anything before.

Yep in the BIOS on my Gigabyte board all I had to do was change the multiplier to 42 and then slightly up the CPU vCore voltage a bit at a time until I got a stable Prime95 run. I didn't have to up it much and it seems to vary on what you need from CPU to CPU but I am well within the safety margins and it'll have been running OC'd in May for two years.

Isn't it nice to get a computer that isn't half full with bloatware too? icon_biggrin

Certainly is... First thing I do with any store bought PC (usually laptops since I build my own desktops) is wipe it and reinstall a clean copy of Windows...

I have found alot of the newer Logitech speakers sound pretty crappy, I have an older set of X220's (2.1) and they sound really good. They are discontinued of course, but there are some on ebay.
