  • Need help deciding between two systems!

    Hey everyone. I've been looking into purchasing a new computer, and have narrowed my choices down to two reasonably high-end ones.

    They're almost entirely identical, except one sports the i7 920 and the other a Q9550.

    I'm stuck on which one to purchase. Money isn't an issue at all here. I want to see the best performance all around, especially in the gaming field.

    Here they are:

    iBUYPOWER Gamer Supreme 944 Core 2 Quad Q9550(2.83GHz) 8GB DDR2 1TB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit - Retail

    and

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883227146

    iBUYPOWER Gamer Supreme 928i Intel Core i7 920(2.66GHz) 6GB DDR3 1TB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit - Retail

    Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!

    They look pretty much identical in specs with the exception of the processor setup, so I'd be inclined to vote for the i7 (which happens to be cheaper, even) I suppose.

      i7. They're virtually identical, but the i7 is Triple Channel. That's pretty much the ending argument for this comparo.

        No brainer. The i7 system is better.
