This mite be a no brainier but need help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a 970BE system up and running very well I mite add, But also have a Q9550 & XFX790I board and want to know if I put that one together would it be as good or not really? I was also thinking of buying some older GTX285 cards and triple sli'ing them on that board. I use Steam and most all my games can download to two computers and was thinking of putting the 790I in other room so if one of the kids wants to play they can use that one or vise versa

so which system would be better?? No Intel vs AMD wars please! you have tried both out or own both and can tell me first hand would be better but any informed response will be appreciated. Thanks

NO FIGHTING ONCE AGAIN if it is better fine, but no fanboy fights.

Clock for clock the Q9550 is going to be the stronger candidate, not by a large margin, and that is if you manage to get the 9550 in the 4GHZ range (which should be plausible) - again neither is going to win by much, either way they will both be excellent set-ups - tri-sli 285's should be pretty good, although 470's prices have dropped severely and are about = to two 285's so $ for $ that may be the better route to go

Good luck with the setup's - its always fun having something new to toy around with

Phenom II 965 trades blow with Intel Q9950. This is at stock speeds. If this helps any.
