    Regarding the competition. ($10,000 Gaming Rig)

    Well I was wondering if I win this competition, (chances are I won't, but if), what should I keep from my current gaming rig and what should I swap with the one that they're giving away.

    My rig:
    i5 2500k @ 3.30 GHz
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 570
    8 GB RAM
    ASUS P8Z68-VLX Motherboard
    2TB Western Digital HDD

    The gaming rig from competition:
    ASUS Sabertooth 990FX motherboard
    AMD FX 8150 CPU
    8GB Kingston DDR3 RAM
    Dual Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 in CrossFire
    Silverstone Strider 1000W Modular Power Supply
    128GB Crucial M4 SSD
    1TB Western Digital HDD

    So for example, should I keep my CPU, but change the graphics card and motherboard?
    Thank you for your help!

    Confused
    Dayum, Dual Sapphire AMD Radeon 7970 with Crossfire. That shit is good. Though, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 is still better.

    The Battlefield 3 competition.. But could you answer my question haha? Like what should I keep and swap if I win?
    Because I feel like the i5 2500K is better than the AMD FX 8150.

    The FX 8150 is better... Dual Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 is also better IMO. Compare the stuff yourself here => http://www.cpubenchmark.net/

    Hmmm apparently the i5 2500k does better (gaming performance wise) and is more future proof though?
    (Not an AMD fan boy are we ?)
    But yeah the Radeon HD 7970 in crossfire would probably be better than the single GTX570.
    Thanks, I'll have a look!

    i find the competition UNFAIR
    DICE IS TARD

    people on bad computers cant record but if they do its laggy and they wont be chosen..
    and a winner will be a famous youtuber...

    Doubtful
    That isn't worth 10 grand LOL.
    I'd keep the power supply, SSD, graphics cards, HDD and RAM.
    i5 2500k is better than the 8 core.
    You're not gonna use all 8 cores.
    i5 2500k is better for gaming.
    Good overclockability.
    Pretty much everything besides the CPU and motherboard.
    And choose what case you want.

    This has nothing to do with getting a new build.
    This is about what he should keep if he wins the competition.
