Question

Does it really matter if it's i7 processor?

I'm looking at his desktop and another one, and the only thing keeping me from buying the other one is the AMD 6-Core FX-6200 Processor on the other desktop. The question is that will it even matter if its an i7 or AMD 6-Core FX-6200.

Very good question!

As a gamer I have used both Intel and AMD products and every setup will have similar/different results sometimes. From my own personal experience:

Intel - should be used for LONG hardcore gaming
AMD - should be used for SHORT term BEST hardcore gaming.

Several benchmarks show that overtime the AMD will outperform at first but overtime the intel catches up and will thrash it in the end.

Very good question. Both processors are designed for multitasking in mind. With that said, it would come down to your preference. As far as which processor would be ideal for you, it would depend on what purpose you would use the computer. I would encourage you to visit your local Best Buy, so they could better explain the differences between the computers. Have a great day!

Question

Is the Motherboard capable of AMD Crossfire?

I'm just wondering if the Motherboard on this Asus PC (model CM6730-08), is capable of using the AMD Crossfire technology? That way I can connect two Radeon 7850 graphics cards using Crossfire.

This PC is not crossfire capable. The Expansion ports on this model include 2 PCI, 1 PCI Express x16. You would need 2 PCI Express x16 expansion slots to even use crossfire. Crossfire must use PCI-E slots.

Thank you very much for your question. This computer has not been tested to run a Crossfire configuration. Please bare in mind that once the computer has been opened, the warranty would then be voided.
