Maybe i'm not looking at them graphs correctly, but it clearly shows that the X6 comes close on many of those tests. Yet you say "There's not one test the X6 even comes close to the 950.."

x264 Enode test, the X6 wins; do you honestly call winning "Not even close" ?

But I would still say go for it since its only $50.
Oh boy, you're gonna get in trouble for that one hahaha.

Uh just stay with the x6. Why would you go through the hassle of selling and rebuilding? Just buy a better video card. You can't actually tell the difference...unless you are Jean Luc Picard and play benchmarks cuz those are really fun games...

http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/phenomii_965/8.htm (Not just the FC2 bench the others as well) The only thing the i7 has over the Phenom II is benching and video encoding. The i7's are just as good as the Phenom II's for gaming...

Either way I'd rather not start this war because I know there will never be a end.

OP - Like I said for $50 id go for it.

Let me just say this man.

As a fellow AMD Phenom II X4 user, there's no doubt in my mind i5/i7s CPUs are significantly faster gaming wise.

Under BFBC2, I'm able to play on 32 player servers just fine, but with a couple of slowdowns here and there, last week, I got the chance to play on a i5 750 powered rig (had a GTX 470 as well), and the smoothness when playing on 32 player servers was just unreal, first time I've seen BFBC2 run that smooth, and to boot, GPU usage was through the roof, with the Quadro 265.90 drivers, I'm able to pull ~90% GPU usage most of the time, this PC was pegged @ 99% usage with a R260 branch driver (not sure you'll get that being an ATI user, to make it short, R265 branch drivers = optimizations for BFBC2, R260 branch drivers = non optimized).

I have play'ed on my friends rig (i7930 4Ghz GTX470) No difference game wise even in BFBC2. But either way benchmarks don't lie tongue.gif

Fair enough, just wanted to show this:

CPU.png

That'a ~7% performance difference between the 965 and 750 @ stock clocks.

And if we go by Inpai's 2500K review, the 2500K will be ~8% faster than a 760 under BFBC2, that's a good ~15% differential right there, not taking into account the performance difference between a 750 and 760.

End of thread hijacking.
