what would you get out of these intel i5/i7 chips, the best allrounder in games programs etc etc, but id say majority of the time will be gaming ie MW2 and any other latest games, im kind of leaning towards the 860

If cost was not an issue I would go 920. If it was an issue I would go PII or i5. Whichever flavor you prefer.

i7 920 if it's in the budget, i5 otherwise. The i5 performs a lot better than pII when compared clock to clock.

If money is not a problem then go for the I7 920, it will last a little longer and be a tad more "future proof".
