i am building a new i7 computer. i have no idea what connectors i need for it or what parts are needed and i want this computer build to be somewhat future proof and be able to play all games on high with programs running in the background.

stuck between the i7 950

and the 920 core.

DO NOT buy the 950 - its a horrible waste of money, its just and overclocked 920. You can over clock the 920 yourself and sale $300.

Even at that. You won't even notice a increase in speed with the higher clock speed. You, in all honesty, can not tell tell the difference between 2.66 and 2.8.
