I'm looking at a new PC for graphics / photo / video work.

Can anyone say if the i7 bundle click here is worth the premium over the AMD which is click here ?

The first of the these will also need a graphics card added to it; the latter has on-board graphics. The intel option does however have another 2GB RAM.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks citadel; that's helpful.

I've been searching for comparisons between the two and just don't get anywhere - some say the i7 is better for graphics, others that the 1090t is the better option. I'm not likely to overclock.

Any pointers to something definitive would be very helpful! Cheers.

Can anyone confirm what I believe to be the case, ie that there is little real world difference in these processors. I'm not into gaming so that doesn't make any difference.

Thanks AL47; I'll take a look at this and a few other options but will likely put off the purchase until October.
