AMD Phenom II 1090T or i7-860?

i want to play games like flightsimulator x , or call of duty, and need an cpu wiht enough power to get a good framerate , and didn't get problems when recording parts of the game with fraps.

what would be better , both cpu's would run with 4 Ghz.

specs:
i7-860 or AMD Phenom II 1090T x6
6GB RAM DDR3 1333mhz
ATI Radeon 5770
Scythe Katana 3 cooler
2x HDD with 7200 rpm

  1. i7 would be the better choice no doubt..Six core phenoms are very slow in gaming..

    I guess the job of everyone at toms is to post benchmarks..


  3. Get the cheapest one.
  4. so better get the i7-860 with 4 ghz , then the Phenom II x6 with 4 ghz?
  5. Get the i5 760 and add some juice to the card, or else wait for the Sandy Bridge.
  6. SB will be total overkill for gaming...
    get a cheaper CPU and bigger GPU for gaming!
