This is a page I'm building to help me decide which hardware to buy for my next new main computer system. It has already aged significantly, but I'll leave it here anyway. About the only part that is still relevant is at the bottom.

Processor

This is the easy bit. I'm looking for an Intel Core i7 4771.
