Hi all

x6 1100T - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
i7 950 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I am in the marker to build a new system primarily for heavy photoshop and video editing usage (premier pro). Even with the reviews and the benchmark numbers I am not been able to decide which will be better of the two. Would the applications be able to make use of the extra 2 cores in the Phenom?

Also, what exactly is the difference in the performance between the i7 9xx series and 26xxK series processors?

this is not CPU benchmark ... but this is multitasking with real life
- for future i will get AMD , AM3+ and 955BE not at 1100 too expensive, for future just upgrade Bulldozer 8 core,
- But if you plan to hurry ... SB i7 2600K + mobo Z68 (not P67 or H67) for workstation NLE

Thanks, I went through other benchmark tests as well and understand that i7 2600K would give better bang for the buck. My requirements are very simple, I am not a heavy gamer but use Lightroom, Photoshop and Premier a lot and will optimize only for that. I researched a bit more and have more precise questions now ...

1. As of today, Adobe products won't benefit from 2 Graphics card in SLI mode or even a dual GPU card (single card sli). In that case does it makes sense to go for a Z68 mobo? How would Z68 add any value over P67? Talking more with photogs and video editors I've got suggestion to invest in a single GPU video card and pour more in RAM and an SSD for a scratch disk.

2. What does dual channel and triple channel mean for a DDR3 ram? I plan to get G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB (4x4) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... Is that perfect for i7 2600K?

3. Any suggestions on the cooling and power supply? Any extra needed other than the stock cooling?

- ok... if you want soft Adobe Cs5 Aftereffect etc , for SLI / Crossfire get P8P67 Asus ( best bang buck mobo P67)
- Triple channel for X58 ... for SB perfect 2x4 GB dual channel
- Hyper 212 + enough
- get for good brand PSU corsair /Anteq/XFX/Seasonic : just asssume for SLI GTX 570, for simple get Corsair HX 850 or XFX black edition 850

If I were you, i'd probably build something like
2600K + z68 + good cooler (some overclock does wonders to your rendering times)
16GB Ram (along with disabling disk caching)
64GB SSD for the system and whatever mechanical for everything else
GTX 570

funny that I am an AMD fanboi=)

Since he's not a heavy gamer a gtx 560 or even a 460 should be fine, unless he uses 3d programs like CAD etc.

He mentioned heavy photoshop. With images of resolution higher than 6000x6000 pixels 570's higher bandwidth and extra shader power will come into play nicely, especially when rotating canvas. Also, it's more futureproof. Your point still valid, though.
