Good Day, I'm building a new system, and want to know if any of you think I would see a big difference between the Core I7 920 @ 2.66 GHz or the I& 950 @ 3.06 GHz. There is a big difference in price. I can get the I& 920 for 199.00 at this time.That is in a retail box. Thanks. Picky

IIRC, you can overclock the 920. I'd say get the 920, and OC it until it reaches the same speed as the 950. But, I'm no expert, so I defer to the main guys (and gals) here.

I don't over clock very much, it can have a adverse effect on your pc even though Intel is making them very overclockable. (If that is even a word)

It depends on what you do with the system... If you need CPU grunt, obviously the 950 would be a better (and more expensive) choice.
