And from personal experience:
I "downgraded" from a Phenom X4 955 to an dual core i3 530, and to be frank I see 0 difference...
For gaming and the light use of firefox and whatnot, ya, that's why I'm not going to do a quad or even a hexacore for that matter. However, I'm going to try and unlocked the Dual Core and get a quad or at least a tri.

man, bfbc2 is just a night mare with 20-40 fps. I found this settings changer to eliminate the bloom and lower the settings even more. Some maps are a nice 30-50, but most maps, maaaan. haha

Idk what your laptop has, but mine's an HP DV6000. I was lucky to hit 15 FPS, in an MMO, with nothing happening. Staring at a wall lol.

That actually took me longer to link than to build. WAY better processor (i5 750 will game as well as an i7), better GPUs (overclocked they stomp a 5870), bigger monitor, better Ram, I actually included an OS, and it comes out to $1556 Canadian. You're welcome.

Edit: not to mention its an all black and red color scheme... how can you go wrong? ;-P
Taxes and shipping?
Canadian taxes and shipping cost a ton.

I actually saw news about the 960T X4 (X6 w/ 2 cores disabled) on OCN somewhere,AMD supposedly canceled on that one.

How is it in Canadian $'s? It's the US site...
Also I think OP is set on his build and I'm pretty sure it's hard to get better


EDIT: My laptop plays all the games I want on med/high settings ^^
