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

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 =[.
