    If you want the most points you will want the 920.

    the 920 compare to the w3520 is no competition because more people submit with the 920

    If you find a good 920 you can bench up in the 4.7+ range but again you will want a good board and ram

    Can it handle the i7 920's load ?
    if it can your half way there

    Compare your #1 place
    http://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/xeon_e5530

    with the 920
    http://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/core_i7_920

    #1 on the 920 will net you 50 points while your e5530 has 1.5 points

    the 920 has way more submissions which will give more points, if your the only one submitting on a cpu it wont be as much as a popular cpu

    you are best spending money on the very popular hardware if you are going to spend on it you know. they have the most submissions so they get the most points for the most people.

    keep in mind that those at the top will of spent much more than you plan on just binning cpu, before they even fire up an os.

    if you're benching older cpu do not bother with 3d benches on it. for 3d benching you want the fastest chip you have, not an older one.

    socket 775 or am2 are about the cheapest platforms to get great boints from as they had a longer shelf life and more popular hardware.

    if you have a fast cpu/mobo setup then you would get great biontage from older gpu runs. the new faster cpu will give you a boost off the bat and the ability to pick from/mod the more modern drivers will help too. if you go mid range on the gpu you will tend to be ok as more people bought the 560 than 580 ;)
