I really need to source out these parts for the new machine I've got to build.
My current machine is seriously not up to snuff for much, with how I generally operate.
I have a lot of things open at once -- two to four separate browsers, my twitter client (Janetter), my mail client (Postbox), Steam, my IRC client, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OpenDNS's DNSCrypt, Pidgin, Raptr, and Foobar2000, just to cover my basic load.
When Flash comes into play, if it's open in a Gecko-based browser, my performance tanks so, so bad.
This is with the addition of the disabling of Protected Mode for Flash (which helps, amazingly).
I'm finally running into games that I can't even play at low settings with all my extraneous applications closed.
I'm going to get back to work, searching for parts at the best prices possible to do what I want to do.
C'mere, AM3+ motherboards...
