Im basically looking at upgrading my AMDx2 system to an Intel quad over the next couple of months. Havnt used intel for a long time wouldve prefered to stay with AMD so im guessing id be best of with a i7 quad. Will be mainly using it for Gaming (mainly fps) and surfing the net. Quite often have alot of apps running at the same time extracting, encoding, watching a movie all at the same timer. I have a lot of stored data and a raid backup setup for the most important stuff may be worthwhile for me.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: in the next 2 months will buy parts over time
i cant use you links sorry but get the 920 with the cogage true spirit cpu cooler or thermalright ultra 120,prolimetech meghelm or scyth mugen 2, look for the asus pt6 v2 motherboard or the deluxe version
