I am about to build another computer and am looking for some suggestions regarding hardware configuration starting with the processor. I would like to use the Intel i7 chipset but am not sure which one to pick. I would appreciate any recommendations in respect to which MB I should mate up with it. I will be connecting a HP Designjet 750 plus plotter so I will be needing a parallel port. Any input in respect to these issues would be greatly appreciated.
