That CPU is a QUAD CORE ... You can afford it and will help renders and fps.

Well, SURE!!! If you are "well to do" the 930 (NOT 920) is definately the way to go! It clocks very nicely and it will run circles around the AMD BLACK QUAD ... BUT ...

Keep in mind that the GPU is (by far) the most important component in a gamer build. If budget tradoffs are required, you would do much better with a 5870, or even a 59xx (if can be found) than to step up to the Socket 1366.

The meanest rig you could build (without just throwing $$$ away) would be an i7-930 with a Hyper 212 (or Zahlman) cooler .. 6GB (CAS7) RipJaws DDR3 and ONE 5970 (or two 5870s) ... This will "PEG" your fps in hi-rez with all details/AA switched "ON".
