I am just beginning to build my new PC (actually from Dell ) I am not sure which processor I should get..I am looking at the Intel Core I-7 920 vs 960....Any sugesstions?
I am not really a game playing but I do some digital photography work with Adobe products and Phtodex slide show maker etc.
Is the price diffterence really worth it and extra $ 470.00
Thanks

For the Studio XPS you would be paying 50% more for a 20% increase in speed at most, where the cpu would be the bottleneck.

The 920 is a much better deal
