    in most benchmarks it is shown that single cores will usually play games better than dual core price equivalents. However, most of the tests used games coded around single processors so the 2 CPU's are not utilized. In the future, many articles have speculated that companies will build games that can maximize the efficiency of 2 cores. So I would recommend the 920.

    go for the 920!! new games in the future will be coded to utilize dual core platforms so u can get a step ahead. At the moment, the 650 will perform better on current games than the 820. But hey, dual cores are still good. the 920 is only $266 at newegg i think

    I would go with a cheaper CPU and a better video card. Which video card are you planning on running with this CPU?
