I tried to find the answer myself but I wasn't sure where to look but I'm trying to help out a buddy pick out an m17x. He can get a good deal on an x9100 with 4870's for under 2 grand. Or he can just buy directly from dell and get the i7 with the 4870 for about 2300. I didn't know which one to tell him to get, as he's primarily a gamer. As I recall having 4 cores or more didn't really help out in games and more in encoding, but at the same time he is getting an r1 which is kinda older. I didn't know what to tell him to get but if someone has some insight and suggestions I'd appreciate it, thanks.
