More about which better
  1. First one
  2. the secound one is better in alot of ways but sandy bridge is having problems right now
  3. 2nd one .... at least in 1-3 weeks when B3 stepping boards are released.

    The EA-Green isn't such a hot PSU .... EA-650 yes. But these are significantly better and will allow you to add 2nd GFX card in future..

  4. First one has ati 6870 card while second one has 6850.If he buys the first one he will get more performance in games.Both cpus are equally good for any game.

    :lol: just drop the 6870 into the i5-2500 build ?

    price/performance, i5 SB still wins here

    How about you finance that extra money which is needed? :lol:
  6. dude second one
  7. 2nd
  8. 2nd lol
