i'll be passively upgrading to my new system, over the course of the next 4 months.

What i use this computer for is, almost everything,

Like high profile gaming, Video Rendering, Programming, Social Networking and Text Processing.


EDIT:

EXCREMENT, YOU BEAT ME TO MY OWN PERSONAL QUESTION QUIT STALKING ME!

what cpu do you plan to use? I suggest you wait intil intel ivy bridge comes ut. otherwise I suggest i5 or i7 as cpu. bulldozer is not worth the money.

Luke and me sat down and had a look at his build and he decided what he's grabbing which is the same as my previous CPU as well, an AMD 955 Black Edition, a great CPU for gaming, Luke isn't in the budget for anything like Ivy Bridge or Bulldozer, plus those CPU's are way too powerful for gaming, its a waste of money (as you mentioned with bulldozer)

The bare most powerful CPU you would want to go with as of this moment would be an i7 970 for it's 6 cores and magnificent cache/power

Anything more is useless for what Luke uses :)

I know you don't know what Luke was in the budget for, so i understand your comment 100%

:)

(Luke is happy playing games on Medium to Low settings on his native resolution)

I suggested ivy bridge since it be very powersaving (77W for the extreme versions). I don't think 200$ for a high end cpu, that will surely last for a time, is expensive and it uses less power (95W as max but I have seen 70W at full load). The phenom you gave him, or will give him, uses 130W almost twice the amount of Watts.

Are you serious? You should've mentioned that to him beforehand in your previous post, if you want to be an energy efficient gamer buy a console.

Seriously.. I have a GTX 480 (the most power hungry single GPU card out there) and my bill isn't bad at all.

It's up too Luke, but he wants his computer before next year, and IVY Bridge last time i checked doesn't even have a confirmed in stone release date yet.
