Here are my thoughts, especially for a dedicated gaming rig, stick with the i5. The big difference between the i5 vs the i7 is hyper threading. This gives you a great boost when doing tasks such as video editing but hardly any difference when gaming.

In almost every respect the i5 2500 will give you the same real world performance as the i7 2600. You can max out mame and just about everything else while saving $100.

Sandy bridge ftw!

use a case if your choice but try for a front end digital audio, and multiple 2.0 usb, all pins available on mobo including firewire....

mobo manual is excellent. I, if i were to do it again, would use a (see attached image) or reviews of short square box with windowed sides: http://www.tomshardw...pared,1901.html

use a blue lighted power supply, you can find one relatively cheap.

mobo hase radeon 4200 with hdmi out and optical audio. fast as anything i've run across, get a sata 750gb or larger, but has ide capable as well.

drivers all: http://www.asus.com/...M2Plus/M4A785M/

use windows seven 7 ultimate 64 bit, doenload directly from MS or use the BIE version, but the untouched is best, use Remove.Wat.2.2.6.0.www.HajarBos.com

bone easy to assemble, with ms updates and the driver psge it's all there. everything is speed and cheap for what you get since most is on board.

you will have about 500 bucks in it but it will be the fatest and best looking machine on the block. not the 2500 buck bleeding edge but it has the latestes add on slots:

1 x PCIe 2.0 x16

1 x PCIe x1

2 x PCI

blu ray burner

i agree ATI Radeon 5450 Graphics card is the gold srandard but with my eyes it is more important to hookup to a 55" samsung hd, would suddest 3d, but reallt required since there is not that nuch content and the tech is not there yet, maybe 5 plus years. the radeon 4200 onboard with hdmi out and via optical is all my senses can discern. but if i had the cash, yes i would be on it with a blu ray burner, with clone or similar.

my bad, i had not read the part that required the choice from a designated list;, but then, brits are not known for an adventourous thought process. given that limitatation i am certain you will be happy whith your choice.

I'd never buy an ATI card you're only asking for trouble, if you intend to run Type X games you'll be really lucky if you don't run into several issues.

I just switched from an ATI 5870 to an nVidia GTX 460 for that very reason

The card of choice by many Arcade user that wants to run a real Arcade screen at 15-25Khz is that card?
