I guess, but what if I could make a i5 750 build thats cheaper than my 955 build.

BIOSTAR T5 XE CFX-SLI LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel MOBO - eBay (item 160454754566 end time Aug-09-10 21:55:32 PDT)
Micro Center - Intel Core i5 750 Processor Boxed 235309

and still use the same ram/psu/etc would be about 15$ cheaper and supposedly better preformance


why me!!!! i cant decide if i didnt live so close to a microcenter i would have went with the 955 or 965 build but since i have one down the street it opens up lots of options which i dont want =[.

If you live near microcenter, then it would better to go with intel build. I heard that i7 930 or i7 860 is sold for about $200 there. Correct me if I'm wrong
