I know I know..this is a mac forum..however before the flaming begins, please note I just got done purchasing a MBP so spare me the flames for a couple of pages. Anyways, I am looking to build a nice budget gaming rig ($1,000 max) and I am looking for some input from you guys. The last computer I built was a watercooled AMD back in 2003, so needless to say I am pretty out of the loop when it comes to recent hardware developments. To my knowledge, the new i7's are the most recent in the processor arena, however, I am not sure if this is going to be overkill if this rig is going to be used exclusively for games. My goal essentially is to be able to play any games out there at full performance (all high settings) with no concern when it comes to playback for the next year and a half or so. What components should I be looking at? Thanks!
