  1. Could build a nicer system yourself. Are you overclocking?

    AMD is faster in CS5, but a bit slower in games. As games get more threaded the X6 will be more powerful.
  2. yep. The AMD is better in multithreaded tasks, but games use 2, 3 or 4 threads max right now, so you won't see the improvement in games, the i5 will be better there (but the 1090 is no slouch). But in video encoding, photoshop, etc. the X6 will blow the I5 away. If you'll be doing both, get the AMD.

    The differences are so great in games and/or applications? and you remember that, I sometimes use 3D graphics programs... maya, 3d max, ecc.. 6 cores are better in these applications?

    with my needs, what do you choose?
  4. ! Maya, 3Dmax? Definitely the X6.
  5. sure.. you change some pice on AMD configuration?
  6. Where are you purchasing from?
  7. I'm Italian, from e-key, is an italian online store... :D hard?
