    I don't understand the question. Do you mean which chip is faster? or which is better suited to a specific task? Or which can have the Highest speed?

    A PC's spec can be almost anything you like, if you are willing to throw money at it.

    They are - performance wise - but, like all new processor architectures they are hideously expensive. Far better to go for a quad-core like the 9550 - available for about 250 quid, IMHO - much more bang for your buck.

    I wouldn't dispute that, I was just saying which are best. I may upgrade to 9550 next year.

    I've got a 9550 - its like **** off a shovel. Runs my non-ESX VM environment with 8Gb of RAM, 64-bit XP with VMWare server installed - eight VMs running like clockwork. I don't 'do' PC gaming, but I'd imagine coupled with a decent graphics card it would be the nuts.

    Never been a specs-junkie, but have always wanted my computing (ahem) 'experience' to be as fast as possible!

    Your not wrong there mate, Why someone would want to pay £800+ for a processor i do not know... Especially for home desktop usage. Simply buying a 920 i7 and overclocking it (Voiding warranty mind) for 600 quid less sounds more appealing. £800+ is a fairly higher end gaming rig!! Especially if your deciding to go down the 775 Route.

    Currently, Higher end 775's retailing for the same price as lower end i7's. i7's obviously are better, but so they should be.... Integrating the memory controller into it as well.

    I sold my Rig last night, Signature below for £300.... Bargain of the month ;)
