1055T w/SSD vs i7 930 w/o SSD

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I have $1600CAD and a dilemma. I have 2 builds - one Intel and one AMD - and I can't decide which to get.

Help me decide
Its pretty much Intel i7 930 w/o SSD vs AMD 1055T w/SSD

Thank you!

EDIT: I don't want to get less of a PSU, because I'd like to add parts in the future.

Well if you're going to add parts in the future, why not just got with the I7 build for now and then add a ssd in the future.

Gaming. By 'add parts in the future' I mean quite far - at least a half year and I more or less meant another 570 for SLI.
I think I'm going to go with the AMD rig. Considering the NCIX Store in Scarborough has what I'm looking for

SSD would make up for the AMD core downfall tbh, i'd go with the SSD system

build looks good except for the mobo. if your not going to crossfire then its a waste of money for that board. you might want to look at a gx board instead and save some money.

Then you don't really need an i7, or even a hexacore for that matter.
Also if you're planning on SLI you're going to have much more selection in the Intel camp motherboard-wise, since you don't need a specific chipset to support it.

That said I'd either go for an i5/1156 setup or if you can wait a few days a new Sandy Bridge (socket 1155) board and an i5 2600.
