Pentium G850 vs. Pentium G6950

Hey Guys,

What would be fastest? Mostly for Games and Adobe Package.

Bonus Info:

Pentium G850 will be running 2.9 Ghz on a Foxconn H61s mITX motherboard with no overclock.

Pentium G6950 will be running 4 Ghz or more on an ASRock H55M-LE

What would be preferable?

Graphics will still be an old Gainward 8800 Ultra 768 MB

2x2 GB 1600 Mhz RAM

500 Watt PSU

    i'd personally go for the newer g850 but i don't think either cpu will be a concern given that the aging gpu will be your main bottleneck. even at stock frequencies i imagine the g6950 is more than capable of handling the 8800. out of interest is the psu a decent one? if you're gonna be oc'ing the latter cpu, don't wanna run the risk of frying it with a sub-standard psu.
  2. It's a really budget setup, I know...

    My psu is a 500 watt Mushkin Enhanced Volta....

    The thing is, I have the 8800 Ultra, Pentium G6950 and H55M-LE at home (6000 miles away), but a friend will be flying over here, so he could bring it.
    Then it's basically free...

    From my last build here, I have:

    Mushkin Enhanced Volta 500 watt
    120 GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD
    EVGA GT240 1 GB
    Windows 7 64bit Pro

    So right now, I need:
    Mobo, Memory, CPU (maybe Cooler) and Case.

    But if he can bring me those items, then I can upgrade my GFX from GT240 to 8800 Ultra!
    Then I only need to buy CM Hyper 212 Evo, Case and Memory!
