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.

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

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

Get the i5 760 and add some juice to the card, or else wait for the Sandy Bridge.

SB will be total overkill for gaming...
