No. Core speed is irrelevant between different GPUs.

Well, you will have a much better experience with a larger, higher resolution monitor.

Lol the case is pretty.

Get some fan filters. They cost ~$5 on eBay (hooray for eBay) and put them on all your intake fans.

For strictly gaming, the 955 is better. When you get into other things, such as video encoding, etc. the core i5.

The phenom II is a much better choice at this budget because it frees up money for other components, so you can get a better video card, monitor, etc. and you will end up with a much better rig than if you went with the i5.

The i7 is the intel one. The AMD one is better for your intentions.

I accidentally called it an i5... lol.
