Phenom I's, yes, I'm pretty sure C2D > PHI. II's, it depends on what chip vs. what chip - they're both very good.

Not sure on the specific benchies for 9750 vs E6750.

but is it worth it to sell my current setup and build around the intel?

C2D > PHI. The only thing in your setup you'd have to change is your mobo/cpu, and you could sell them and get enough I'm sure to get a very decent 775 board taht everything else you have would work with perfectly.

It's pretty much on par with the phenom 2 architecture, but a good deal ahead of the phenom 1... It'll be better for gaming than your current CPU but IMO it seems a bit counter productive to step down to two cores from four as most games being developed now are able to utilize multiple cores

It happens, game wise the i5 is hard to beat in terms of price/performance when comparing it to i7.

I sort of thought that i5 750 was basically the same thing as an i7 920, except the i7 had HT.

It looks like that EVERYTHING on that list that doesn't support HT, the i5 750 wins. And by a reasonable margin on some!

Yay!

i only game I'm more concerned with framerate than anything else

Pretty much it, and the lower bandwidth in memory intensive applications. 920 still wins in those

Sorry to be a dissenter, but look at this handy page (anand rules)

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/default.aspx?p=60&p2=22

You can google up more stats but to me it doesn't seem like a clear enough win to justify ripping out the mobo to suit as well.

On the other hand if you're going one of the high range 45nm C2D/C2Qs (E8600 for dual, or Q9550/9650.) then it would be worth it IMHO. Look at those charts in that link. Now imagine them with a good OC. On the other hand I dunno much about AMD overclocking, maybe your chip OCs like hell as well.

Yea but he was talking about winning. If you win that E6750, sell your current CPU and motherboard and get a cheap P45 motherboard.

Your Mobo supports Phenom IIs which are equal or better than C2D in most scenarios.
Since Your limited to 95w this and this are some good quads.
Or you could go for Tri and grab something like this.

no it only supports the energy efficient versions of the phenom II's like 900e and ones like that

that's pretty insane but is crysis and crysis warhead really that much faster on a dual core?

Crysis and Crysis warhead are not multithreaded (they are only single threaded so they only use one core). And since the C2D and C2Q both thread really well, then it takes the lead.
