pretty much both are the same but the processor, main use games, not much video editing or audio as before when i get this Q6600 that still run nice. i am thinking in a moderate OC, not so extreme so i may ditch the watercooling for some decent air cooling, and feeling more like getting the i5 instead i7, and use the saving money in and SSD or more ram.

i would really appreciate some help, thank you.
