  1. The 920 is the way to go, definitely.
  2. Yes, 920 is the way to go but not with motherboard. You should look for an Asus or Gigabyte motherboard instead.
  3. ^ unless they're stilling doing that $300 i7 920 + Intel mobo offer
  4. Well the only reason why he would even want to go with a non Intel mobo is for the extra PCIe slots and OCing although Intel mobos are pretty decent for OCing.

    And even without OCing a Core i7 920 will really make game video editing faster than the Q9650 would.
  5. Budget?
    What software and games will you be running?
    What is your gaming resolution?
    Where will you purchase your components?
  6. as everyone else is saying 920 is the way to go.

    If your wanting a lot of power and and fairly decant price for a cpu the 920 will be it. They my be both quad cores but with the Hyper-threading it make the cpu act like 8 cores instead of the true 4 cores.

    The core 2 quads does not have the Hyper-threading.

    I still have a Intel P4 2.8 GHz computer thats about 4 or 5 years old and still runs very good. It's so good that it can play assassin's creed which requires 2.2ghz core 2 duo. I believe it is only able to play it because of that Hyper-threading.

    So in the long run, it more worth getting the I7.
