My System Specs

Smile i7 975 or i5 750 who wins in games ( Xbit labs )

Intel Core i7-975 EE and Core i5-750 in Contemporary Games - X-bit labs


I haven,t dug in to this but it looks verry interesting. i5 750 has the 975 baet.

Edit : 10 to 35 % gain fore the 975

like to see this test with a i7 780

to be honest its stupid to compare a 750 to a 975
especially in games thats so dependent on gpu
my 860 will eat a 750 for breakfast
my overclocked 920 will eat my overclocked 860 for lunch

My System Specs

Default for 1000$

I know where my mony would go if I were building now versus a year ago. The only poblem is I think Intel will Kill 1156 platform soon.

not yet. waiting for the 95 watter, i.e. the d0's amd style ;)

for low budgets im good, for super high end ones not so lol....

but if your pc will be gamed 100 pct or close, then choose gpu first. then see whats left of your budget, if any.

bud of mine asked me to sugest him a box(just the box) for 400-500 bucks.

believe it or not i squeezed in a 5850 used in the said budget lol

else he wouldve chosen himself, intel with integrated graphics
