Hi tomshardware people hope you can help me with this delema. I'm planing to buy my system around February 2011 i mainly use my system for games (emulator included) and surfing the net Mostly , but i do use it sometimes on video rendering and photoshoping . now the question is kinda is this which is better in Performance , Feature package and Power consumption is it the Intel i7 930 /950-(if i cant find it this will be my fall back) or AMD Phenom II X6 1090T . both have different aspects of the term "Turbo" and both have them Intel has 8 threads while AMD has 6 physical cores (correct me if im wrong here). Here are the other component .

For Intel
Intel i7 [930 or 950] with Aftermarket Fan and thermal paste
Asus Rampage III Extreme X58 LGA 1366
Kingston Hyper Genesis X Dual Channel DDR3 1600 8GB with Intel X.M.P.
Enermax Modu 87+ 900w or Revolution85 1025w [last option]
EVGA GTX 580 SuperClocked

For AMD
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T with aftermarket fan and thermal paste
Asus Crosshair IV Extreme 890FX AM3
Corsair Dual Channel DDR3 1600 8GB with AMD Black Edition
Enermax Modu 87+ 900w or Revolution85 1025w [last option]
EVGA GTX 580 SuperClocked

now this is pretty much the essence of it . Also im currently using an MSI board with APS i also wanna know if asus's dual inteligent processor works the same way or better and is it effective? and I may change the video card to EVGA GTX FTW 570 SuperClocked SLi if its out by then but for now its single 580. this also has to stack up to Dolphin Emulator and PS2 Emulator also Price is a factor also i'm cheap but i just want to know the most bang for buck deal .. i mean who doesn't?

Thanks for the fast reply Cheers and more power to you!
