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.
