Default Re: Q9550 or i7 920?

they're the same thing, although i think with 9800GT's, you MIGHT get a 55nm version which would save you a little power....

I'm sure the xfx will downclock to match 600mhz. You can use both cards

Whichever is clocked higher would be faster..

9800GT and 8800GT are the same card...

It would downclock the faster clocked card though.. but 40mhz is nothing.. you can OC the other one to the same speed
