  1. Everyone seems to like the MSI models, they must have a good reputation. Do you think there is a big difference between a i5 and a i7 core? Also is there a time in the year when things start to become cheaper because of new stuff?
  2. In most games/daily tasks, there isn't a big difference between them
  3. Prices for the items today become cheaper when a newer model comes out.... you usually have to wait a good month.

    Stock market also contributes to prices.... and well that doesn't look so good

    Or would you rather spend it on this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6834152196

    they both look good to me
