overall i7 is a superior processor. X4 955 is a overpriced 940 with ddr3 controller. i7 920(D0) could hit and run stable @ 4 ghz with air.

i guess u meant to say "how am i going to buy, ur not in usa"
the i7 is better, but since u cant buy from new, most reviews say the MSI 790fx-gd70 is the best am3, but anything from msi or gigabyte will do the job well, always do research b4 u buy.

thanks guys

sorry ;) 
im not in uk or ireland :)  i well buy the hardware of the computer from newegg.

i understand from your comments that Core i7 better then 955 for the games.
actully i was worry between i7 and 955.


ok core i7 , motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R . RAM : http://www.corsair.com/corei7/default.aspx , Corsair Dominator 6GB PC3-12800 DDR3 Triple Channel Memory Kit , Case : I looking for a nice case from gigabyte.

Yep...for that kind of money, I'd have to agree that i7 is a far better choice. I think you'll be much happier going that route for that kind of money.

What country are you in? How will you get the parts from newegg if you aren't in the US (or Canada)?

That MB is for AMD. Get the basic giga x58 board. GA-EX58-UD3R: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GA EX58-UD3R doesn't work well with patriot DDR3 mem so try to avoid them.

or get a MSI M-ATX X58M: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

it has very nice oc features and its cheap. most msi x58 boards have IOH temp problems so get a after market Thermalright HR-05/IFX NB heatsink. fixes the IOH issue.

i wonder what would run crysis better, an i7 and 2 4770s or a 955 and 2 4890s hmmmm
July 31, 2009 2:03:10 AM

Yep...make sure you have an i7 (LGA 1366) board. That one is definitely AMD.

second that.

I know Toms came up with i7 920 with 2x 260 or something like this against PII 955 with 2x 4890(?). But in OP's case... would love to see the i7 with 1x 4890 (or 2x 4770) vs PII 955 with 2x 4890 (if they are in the same price range).
