    Help Build my first Intel.

    Coming from AMD. I'm Use to cheap so I know this will be hard for me.

    Using AMD Phenom II x2 unlock cores to x4 Black. (Over clocking is not important to me)

    I only use my Pc for Web, Twit, and trying VM's Win/Linux

    Do I need a I7 or do I5 really that good?

    I here non K are good for VM True or not?

    If you don't mine let me know what you would choose.

    Looking for a SFF so No Full Size ATX boards.

    I use a R7 260x with Two screens - Might hook up my third after a year.

    What a best Bang for the buck with Intel CPU chips.

    Thank you for your time.

    Why not keep using your current board? If you want a new PC that is one thing, but I don't see any performance changes.

    Toms hardware I believe has cost performance charts.

    Depends on how many VM's you spin up

    I here non K are good for VM True or not?
    Non "K" parts allow the VM's direct hardware access (VT-d) to sub-systems

    If you don't mine let me know what you would choose.
    If you aren't going to overclock...A 4 core hyperthreaded part

    Depends, how close are you to a microcenter ?

    Thank you for your time.

    Ok, Where are you located then ?

    Fry's has combo deals...if one is local to you.

    Not to crap over Newegg, but Amazon usually has equivalent pricing unless it's a "shell shocker" deal.

    A good place to start would be our own HWLB (http://www.pcper.com/hwlb) and then decide on the price point you want to target.

    In your particular case, just choosing a processor (sans the -K suffix) would get you 90% there.
