I have 2 decisions with my upgrade. Im not sure which one would do well in gaming.

 

Choice #1:

Intel Core i5 750

Gigabyte P55-UD4

G-Skill Ripjaws 4gb 2x2gb 1333mhz

2x MSI 4890

 

Choice #2:

Core i7 920

Asus P6T

Corsair XMS3 3x1gb 1333mhz

Powercolor 5850

 

I play at a resolution of 1680x1050 but i sometimes go on the big screen and play at 1920x1080. I play games such as far cry 2, call of duty world at war, need for speed shift and most upcoming games. I would like the system to be pretty much good enough to play most games at decent framerates for atleast 2-3 years. And keep in mind that i have a Antec 900 which i have to squeeze the card into.

 

thx in advance

If you would eventually buy a second 5850 then choice 2 would be the best option. i haven't heard good things about powercolor, make sure you buy a good psu I would say a 650w or 750w corsair would do nicely if you plan on doing xfire.

O yea i forgot to mention i have a Zalman HP-750 watts which has 60 amps. I might just get a sapphire then. I will probably never go crossfire soon cause im not that rich lol.

 

I think i can go with a Core i7 860 setup.

Sapphire 5850

This reason alone I'd agree that the 5850 would be the best choice of those on your list.

i might just go with the i7 860 since it is actually cheaper then both. Have to first buy a 1156 lga bracket for noctua nh-u12p. If anyone from australia know were to get one please tell.

 

if i read this right. then you are saying that the 860 is cheaper than the 750 and the 920?

 

i5 750

i7 860
