You have the choice of either: - OC'd ~3.4GHz Q6600 on a Gigabyte UD3L P45 motherboard, 4GB DDR2 PC2 800MHz RAM (with a GTX 460 SE & 650W Antec PSU) OR - i3-2100 on a mid-range z68 motherboard, 4GB DDR3 PC3 1333MHz RAM (with a GTX 460 SE & 650W Antec PSU) Assume the i3 build is 10% more expensive than the Q6600 build. Which combination do you chose and why?
