One thing to consider that is rarely mentioned is cost of operation. The 2600k will consume on average 40-50% less power than a 970.

Make sure you read the benchmark, some of them are meant to be lower.

In short, the i7 2600k beats the 980x more benchmarks than vice versa.

Also, it's about £600 cheaper.
I'm gonna wait for the new stuff later this year.

Yes but a hex i7 will put out more PPD. Upgrade or not he won't see a noticeable increase in his gaming, but a folder is likely to notice the extra PPD.

Even without the unlocked multi he will hit 4.0+ for the speed easily and thus be crunching through bigadv's that much faster.

It ain't worth the money. It's that simple.

I'm talking PPD here, folding, you know.

2600K at ~5GHz gets ~50K PPD.
i7 970 at ~4.3GHz gets ~70K PDD.

Cool benchmarks, bro.

980X is for idiots, 970 is the same thing only mucho el cheapo.

I win!

I think it's the best move. There'll be some impressive stuff coming later down the road.

Like everyone states, wait. A few more months is when you should ponder which cpu to buy.

your rig is fine, if you really want a new toy, get a Rampage 3 extreme black edition, or watercooling or both


if you get watercooling then you can try and push your 930 to higher clocks xD

It's the same principal as 920 to 960.
