I'm considering doing a custom made computer in the future. Though I want to have your input gbatemp. Also I dont know much about building computers. My budget would be 1000-1500 (with tax). Im looking for a PC that can be able to emulate dolphin perfectly and some 3D model programs. I hear i5 processor is good enough for dolphin (selecting i5 to save money also). Only difference I hear for i7 is hyper-threading which is really only good for video editing programs.
