    there both just as good only the 920 has triple channel memory and a faster qpi,but in games its been reviewed the 860 is just as fast as the 920....also the 860 is only 95 watt and runs alot cooler than the 130w 920

    are they the same price? if so, then go with No.2 If the 920 is cheaper, go with the 920, its a real powerhouse.
