Default Re: geforce 280 gtx sli debating about 480 sli...

I don't disagree that a i5 will do the job just as good as a i7 ,I was just thinking that the i7 socket 1366 has more life to it if the 6 core ever come down enough to buy one.I don't think there are plans to make a 6 core socket 1156,if they do then my reason for sugesting a i7 will become mute.But if you don't want to spend a lot of money then the i5 would be a good choice ,plus a pair of GTX 470's in SLI.I went from GTX 280's to HD5870's to GTX 470's and notice a big difference .The HD5870's were good cards ,I just like nvidia little extras better and I like there control pannel better.
