This site is, I'd think that would mean getting the most out of your money. i.e. overclocking a i7 920 to 4GHz instead of spending 1500 bucks on a 6 core processor that will barely give you an increase in performance

My goal right now is futureproofing, and I have a feeling that this beast will last me a long, long time. you can't future proof... But yeah go ahead, if you think the small increases in gaming performance is worth 1500 USD then go ahead. (or the other...

The 980X is just a 32nm i7 975 with 6 cores (and possibly small improvements). It's not going to improve gaming performance. you'd be better off with a i7 920 if anything

Then you will have 16 threads instead of 12 threads, or 8 cores instead of 4. um you realize a i7 920 doesn't support dual QPIs. dual QPI chips are xeons and start at what.. 1000? oh well.
theres a BC2 thread to post videos i have found a video MAKE A THREAD ABOUT IT

you don't need more than 1500 for a i5 750+HD 5850
