I would still take the i7 975 personally, just for the rights of saying "I have a 975!"

Actually, I don't agree with what you guys are saying. In all of the LATEST games in that article, the i7 975 has the 750 beat clean:

Just Cause 2: 10 to 25% higher
DiRT 2: 10 to 35% higher
Metro 2033: GPU limited. Draw.
BF BC2: 2 to 30% higher
Mass Effect 2: Draw

i7-975 is 3,33ghz, i5 750 is 2,66ghz stock. I bet if you oc both up to about 3,6 and retest, things will be much closer. When I started reading this thread this is what I was hoping to see.

it's all about gpu's and there bandwidth they need to get there data on the screen even if the 750 comes close as soon as you start running more then one gpu you'll notice it huge on the 1366 platform Introduction - GTX 480 SLI @ 2560x1600 - GTX 480 SLI PCIe Bandwidth Perf. - x16/x16 vs. x8/x8 | [H]ard|OCP

Yeah, but not till 5760x1080 resolutions . Interesting link none-the-less that 8x/8x doesnt play a lick of beans in framerates. I think I'm okay at my 16x10 resolution. Mind you, I'm running a classified quad 16x (nF200) anyways...

good article! I'm running crossfire 5850's both overclocked and running 8x/8x this is probably overkill for my monitor(s) but hey one was free.
