There's maybe one test that the QX9770 beats the i7 in, and that's Queens.
EDIT: Scratch that, maybe a few tests. CPU data encryption is lacking on the i7s, and the QX9770 beat the 920 on contact searching. Barely beat the 920 on webpage rendering and PCMark Vantage. But for costing almost 1200 bucks less than the QX9770 and being the budget of the 3 i7s, I think that's pretty good.
In price vs performance, which is a serious factor, despite what the OP thinks, it obviously blows it away.
