Steve Foster Posted January 1, 1970 Share Posted January 1, 1970 Hi guys, Time for the technical experts to have their say, as Windows 7 is soon to start landing on our doormats where would you go if building a brand new rig for it? I've pretty much made up my mind on getting a couple of Corsair P128 Solid State Drives, one for the OS and one for FSX, but what board/processor combination would you go for: Intel i5 (LGA 1156) versus Intel i7 (LGA 1366)? If I was going for the i7 board then the processor would be a 920 2.66GHz D0 or for the i5 board it would be?an i5 750 2.66GHz. I have seen a number of reviews stating that the i5 processor can out perform the i7, but I don't think you can overclock the i5 like the i7. Once I have decided upon what processor socket to go for I can start researching the rest. I'm not intrested in running more than one graphics card as FSX won't benefit from it. I'd be intrested in your thoughts. Regards, Steve. Quote Link to comment
