Hello im building a new pc but im stuck at deciding what Cpu Processor should i get mostly for gaming purposes rather than editing but i use alot photoshop and dreamweaver . Anyway in your opinion what procesor would suit better for the future of gaming.
If you want it to last that long then you need i7.
Its the only proc thats shifted to DDR3, which will most likely be at the end of its life in 2-3 years. AMD rigs will be outdated relatively soon when AM3 socket mobo's are released.
Its pricey because its the best...you get what you pay for
The Q9650 will be plenty of CPU, but i7 would be better. If you end up sacrificing your GPU for i7 your going to get less performance in gaming anyway. As for editing, the difference is only so large and you have to decide if it is worth it. I'm not sure i7 is really the best choice for you.
but the i7 with gaming is really not worth the money becuase you won't get a lot of exra FPS becuase of i7 is a new chip or anything it simply is not =to price/performance vers the Core 2 Quads or the Phenom 2.
