Iv'e got the 785G, AMD phenom x4 overclocked at 3.8ghz, 8gb OCZ DDR2 RAM overclocked at 1200mhz and 2TB of HDD. So I am hoping it lives up to my expectations. Headaches are ahead from what I read but I am hoping in due time I will get exactly what I want out of it.
Yes, we were going in different directions I think. I was going for a low watt computer because I plan to leave it on all the time. With your setup you should just get that video card, you are high end anyways.
I'm 785G, regor x2 at 3.0ghz, 4gb ocz ddr2 ram and one WD green 1TB hard drive. So you can see for my goal, I don't want to add a power hungry graphics card. My 9 year old receiver only supports dolby digital 5.1 anyways, HDMI wasn't even a glint in some engineer's eye back then.
My dad's comp I'm planning on 785G with sideport mem, phenom II x4 3.0ghz, 4gb DDR3 ram, and the black WD 1TB drive. Not worried about power on this one because it is usually in sleep mode or off. Still he doesn't game so I will be sticking with the integrated graphics.
