I see, gotta tell you this though if your lookign into 4870x2 or gtx295/gtx 280 sli etc the 4ghz of i7 cpu really psh the gpu on
it seems my 4870x2 needs atleast 4ghz to fully open up!!!
If your gonna buy a competely new rig, If it was me bearing in mind I have never had phenom but am a i7 owner, I'd go I7 it uber fast and your takeing no risk of dissappointment knwoing you have the latest and greatest, id save a little longer
