I am planning on buying a pc. To be specific i will be using this pc for progamming applications, for gamming (occasionaly) and in the near future for grafic applications. Finaly i came up with this:

--> (cpu) AMD PHENOM II X4 955

--> (motherbored) MSI 790FX-GD70

--> (ram) DDR3 4GB (2X2GB) 1600MHZ

--> (graphics card) ASUS ENGTX275/HTDI/896MD3 896MB PCI-E RETAIL

--> (hb) WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB

--> (power supply) 750W

summing up to (with case and DVD drives) 1079.92 €

What do you people think? Am i beter of with a intel i7 920 (keeping all the stuff same only changing motherbord to a 'ASUS P6T' sums up to 1149.17 €)?

More about : buy realy good

I would go with the core i7, but you'll have to spend more on a 3x2gb kit of ddr3.

If you have the money and want to have the best performance, go with core i7. but if you want to support or you're an AMD fanboy, go with AMD.


If you choose AMD, you should change the graphics to ATI 4890 or 4870 1GB. Later on, you have the option to add another one in (CFX).

If you stay with GTX 275, change the mb to 790GX. Reason ppl get 790FX is to run their 2 ati gpu x16-x16.

Make sure you get a great psu, any corsair, pc power & cooling & antec 750w power supply is great.

Last thing, get an aftermarket cpu cooler...

you can't use an i7 in a 790GX motherboard, only in X58 motherboards.
