I have a very specific task I'd like to accomplish.
Run 4 clients of Eve Online simultaneously , DURING A "Fleet Fight" (1000+ players on the field at the same time).
From those ive spoken with, this is VERY RAM intensive, as well as CPU intensive. (Not particularly GPU) Does this make sense? I trust you guys over those ive spoken with, so trust your instinct if this sounds fishy...
I am trying to build a gaming rig, and someone suggested that "Hyper-threading" was useless in gaming. (Would an I3 with 3, cores with "hyperthreading" to 6 cores, perform better then a Phenom 955? (They cost dang near the same)
The price i am aiming for is appropriately 1,200 USD.
Is Triple Channel DDR3 worth it (And all the Mobo's having 6 ram slots)? If so that leaves me with the only choice being the I7-920
If not, we are left with the i7-860 vs the AMD Phen 955. (Do ANY of these mobo's offer 6 ram slots?)
