i7 920 vs i7 960

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
920 or the 960? Micro Center got the 960 for 199 new while the 920 on ebay is about 170 used. I can go both ways. I heard that 920 can get more overclock on it, but I'm not a fan of ordering off ebay and don't prefer used cpu's since i have bad incidence in the past. Should I just pay the extra 30 ish dollar to get the 960 new?

I'd go for the 960, it will be able to overclock higher than the 920.
