  1. I was just wondering of someone could give me some tips on which would be better for "GAMING".

    A high end 775 motherboard with a high end core 2 duo cpu,

    or an x58 mobo with the cheapest i7 cpu??

    thanks.

    x58 with the i7 920.

    You can overclock with it too, just takes some tweaking.
