Which i7 cpu works best with the HD 4870 x2?

I'm planning an upgrade around the Radeon HD 4870 x2 card. I don't have the wallett for an i7 extreme so I was wondering if there was any real difference between the i7 920 and it's more expensive brother the 940?

In other words, would I notice any game playing difference for the extra money?

  1. they both overclock quite well. The 920 is reported to be stable at around 3.8-4.1 ghz and I'd expect the 940 to push that another 200-300mhz higher. In terms of quality/price, go for the 920.
  2. Hey, thanks so much bro!
  3. +1 for the 920. The 940 is better but much less bang for the buck.
