    Looking to build a gaming rig, but unsure which CPU to go with.
    Just bought a Geforce GTX 275 & am unsure about CPU & Motherboard.

    Was looking at these :-


    AMD FX 8350
    Intel Core i7 920
    Intel Core i5 3570k
    Intel Q9550

    According to cpuboss.com, the i7 920 is hyperthreaded & has more threads etc.
    But the i5 3570k has better performance, overclockability etc.
    So i'm kinda undecided which to get (if any of these 2).


    Any help/info is much appreciated.

    From personal experience can defiantly highly recommend the i7 ! .. Have always used and loved Intel, have had experience with AMD in the past also.. not for me.
