Tags: New Build Intel i5 Systems Product Last response: April 16, 2010 1:21 PM in Systems Share Phixit April 16, 2010 12:33:10 PM Hello, I built three different systems with the same hardware except for the mobo/cpu combos. Here at the final prices of each configurations : 706.51$ = Athlon X4 630 747.96$ = Phenom X4 955 816.96$ = Core i5 750 All prices are in CAD. Which chipset/CPU to choose now ? Gaming, multitasking and a lot of Photoshop under Windows 7 64bits. It would be built with 8GB of DDR3 1333, a Radeon 5850 and few hard drives in RAID. Thank you.
