They'll last 10+ years, but that doesn't mean the performance will.

For gaming they should do 5 years min. C2Qs are just now becoming bottlenecks, and two them in a SR(did they just make a one?) or similar board would be running fine still in games at max.

Get the e5645. What most of you may not realize, its the SR-2's immense power and capability. You can put OODLES of ECC ram in this thing, more than its rated for. The best part of having so many spare threads? You can do all sorts of work and game at the same time. I can have photoshop, and premiere open at the same time, as well as folding@home. I can still open up blps for zombies, or BC2 in the mean time while I am doing something. SR-2 is immensely powerful for doing insane amounts of multitasking. It also, is very, very close to the performance you'll see out of sandy bridge in gaming. @ the OP. The e5645 may be a slight shortfall for you. Like their e5620 brethren or so to speak, they have the same multiplier and as such are extremely difficult to get two of them past 3.8Ghz. Whereas, you'll get a x5650 passed 4.0Ghz almost no problem. The good thing, is that the e5645 should run very cool with its low TDP for a hexacore processor.

I think you lack a basic understand of the principle more cores doesn't equal more performance when it comes to gaming.

Quad cores have been out for years and even now games are still coming out dual threaded.

Having 12 cores is a moot point unless something crazy happens, typically 8-10 of them are worthless, including the HT.


Dude makes a valid point as well, but the same would apply if a SR3 comes out for SBe, only it will be faster.

I know the more cores wouldn't be needed, but still, a nice thing to have. It will last for 5-7 years MIN I'd say.

Games are just starting to use DX 11 and more cores and threads and some examples are metro 2033, BF3, Crysis Warhead, and Crysis 2.

SR-2 (Is usually for bench marks and setting bench mark records and also for doing video and other demanding work.)

Since you are a gamer you will not benefit much from 2 6 core cpu's, your best bet is to go with the 2600k.

For the most part i think the 2600k will were the crown in most games however if it is not that major of a fps difference the extra power from the sr2 would be well worth it. However since i am a gamer deep down if the gaming difference is to great i would succumb to that.
Thoughts?
We probably work in similar industries, so here's my advice to you based on what I did with likely a similar budget.

My main PC would be a 2600k with a beefy video card setup. Probably would get whatever it is you're considering in the first place.

Take the money you save from NOT buying two expensive chips that are starting to get phased out and a really expensive mobo and set yourself up with a Slave PC or two.

I built a few for myself so I could do distributed rendering and not spend a goddam fortune on a dual Xeon that's really no faster than a 2600k.

My main PC is an i7 975 @ 4.2ghz so this information isn't quite as relevant to you (since your main PC would be a newer 2600k and thus faster than mine), but here's my rendering stats on a test scene I'm using:

i7 975 ONLY -- 7:45
i7 975 + 2x2600k Slaves -- 2:25

I built two Slaves for $2600 with tax, a copy of Windows, and full OCing parts. Both machines are running 5.1ghz 24/7 (because Maya isn't quite as intense on procs as Prime95). Each Slave machine is capable of 10.00 CPU scores in CineBench 11.5, making my collective network rendering score approximately 20.00. I would like to see someone else achieve that for under $2600 with tax, Windows, etc.

If you have any questions, PM me. That is if I assume correctly and you work in 3D animation/VFX.

Yesterday I went to Micro Center trying to decide between Core i7 990x and Core i7 2600k (coming from Core i7 920) I reluctantly decided to go with Core i7 2600k and boy I'm glad I did. The speed increase from the i7 920 is quite noticeable, not to mention that the 2600K runs a lot cooler, and overclocks like a dream.

Needless to say my vote goes to the 2600k.

There is no doubt in my mind the 2600k will get better frame rates on current games, but the real question is how much.
There's no way I'd drop 2K into a new build with so much goodness around the corner. By the time you get your rig together, Ivy and BD would hit the market and you'd be kicking yourself... WHY DIDN'T I WAIT??

Lifetimes of CPU's aren't relative. We are getting faster and more reliable, even for the average consumer, sure if your a gamer etc, then we move foreward.

My dad has a Celeron D 915 that still runs IE and Word etc fine.

My i5 760 will last a VERY long time. Because its not far off SB, only reason why C2D are falling behind is because they are reaching the end of the line (65nm) and we are all getting used to Quad Core technology.

more cores and threads are being utilised, but we are reaching the limits of Silicone based CPU's.
