Re: Need help deciding on i7 and MOBO...
I don't really think the 920 is better, from everything I've read they're essentially the same. The Core i7 930 is capable of 1x greater multiplier (21x vs 20x) so it can achieve higher clock rates. However, if this causes problems, it can always be bumped down to 20x and essentially be a Core i7 920 to achieve identical performance. The main complaint was that it is easier to get a 20x200MHz BCLK than 21x200MHz and thus the i7 920 being a lower multiplier lets the rest of the system run faster, but at that point you could just start dropping the multiplier and increasing BCLK if you want more board performance.
Other than that I'd assume any hands-on experience would vary chip to chip, some chips overclock really well and other chips do not, it doesn't matter what product line they are.
