I want to build a computer for high end gaming. I'm buying all the parts and im going to assemble it. I am deciding on a cpu for it and i cant decide between the AMD HDT90ZFBGRBOX Phenom II 1090T Black Edition Six Core Processor - 3.20GHz, 6MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Retail, Socket AM3, Processor with Fan
or the Intel Core i7 950 Processor BX80601950 - 3.06GHz, 8MB L3 Cache, 4.8GT/s QPI, HyperThreading, Quad Core, Bloomfield, LGA 1366, Retail, Fan
The AMD has a 6 cores but the intel i7 can benefit more from ddr3 memory. I was thinking of using OCZ OCZ3G1333LV8GK Gold 8GB PC10666 DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Upgrade - 1333MHz, Non-ECC, Unbuffered, 2x4096MB
i want dual channel benefit and i cant find any other good 8gb (2x4)gb ram cards. also that ram was designed specifically for the intel i7. i like the amd cpu more but it seems that the intel i7 is more compatible and i can buy a better motherboard to support it.
what cpu do you guys think is better and why? also, what motherboard do you all think would be good to accompany it?
