Need Suggestion!!!!
Hi guyz,

I was gonna purchase a pc and its specs are:

Core i5 2400 3.1ghz 6mb cache
Intel DH67CL mobo
4GBx1 DDR3 1333 RAM
CM 371 Elite case
(PSU: Antec HCG-620W and GPU:MSI GTX560-Ti and HDD: WD Green 500GB 32MB cache i already have)

BUT SUddenly i saw an used pc, specs were:
Intel i7 920 2.66Ghz 8MB cache
Intel DX58SO Mobo
DVD- Burner
normal case and no psu

As m in Asian country so according to ur CAD, the price for i5 2nd gen pc was: $392.53 and i7 2010 pc was: $379

PLz clear my doubts and advice me one but that one which can be excellent performer in that price in terms of next gen opt., limitations etc etc.

Depends on what you are using the PC for also what type of warranty or guarantees are they that they will or will not work and shipping costs . there is allot of blank information that needs to be answered :)

I'd go for the new i5 2400.. same (ish) price and warranty beat the 920 (unless you really want to oc)

Would try get a second matching stick of ram though (2x 4GB rather than 1x 4GB), should cost about $35 more (ish)

WD Green is quite slow, might consider upgrading that if your budget allows.

But overall the newer chip should run better than the 920.

Ditto on the WD Green. I have a couple of WD greens in my system, and while they're excellent storage drives, they are SLOOWWWWWW. It sometimes takes a few seconds (as long as 15 sometimes) to populate my media folders when my computer has been sitting idle for a while. As a boot drive, you'll completely kill your system's performance, IMO.
