Hi guys, I am going to be building a new machine once I get my pre-ordered copy of Windows 7 in October. I am in a bit of a pickle because I don't know whether to go for Core 2 Duo/Quad or Core i7. All I want is the machine to be nice and fast, and play pretty much any game I though at it (but it will be being used as more of a media machine) (being connected to a TV). My two choices are: Core 2 Quad @ £304 (just CPU, mobo, memory(4gb ddr2)) Core i7 @ £498 (cpu, mobo, memory(6gb ddr3)) I am also going to be getting an ATi 4890 for those gaming moments (i'm not going to be gaming very often at all). What do you suggest? I just want a nice fast media PC (thinking of going micro atx as well) that will also play games and deal with HD content no problem. Thanks guys. El.
