My review of going from AMD to Intel - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thanks for posting this. My sister needs a new computer and I was thinking of giving my core parts to her and upgrading to an 2500k. I have a local Microcenter and $40 in giftcards so I think that's a sweet deal for 139.99. Now just need to decide on a board to go along with it...

If you're looking for a budget board with premium features then i'd suggest the board in my sig, ASRock Extreme 4. It's a very solid board, it's around $150 atm and it has the same features as the Asus P67 Pro which is around $190.

That is a nice board. Probably the best bang for the buck right now.

Thanks for posting this up, a great review!

I moved from an X6 1055T @ 4Ghz to an i7 2600k, and even at 4Ghz, I noticed a new world in Gaming, I had an HD5970 when I did the upgrade, and I gained almost 20fps average in Bad Company 2.

I gained overall smoothness in EVERY game, it felt so much different, like a whole brand new computer!

I definitely don't regret moving to Sandy Bridge, it was a great choice, specially considering how good of an Overclocker I got, 4.8Ghz HT ON with just 1.328v.

Thanks again for posting up this review, it was very interesting to read it, wonder why I didn't do something like this back in January when I moved.

thats good to know. I thought about getting an 1055 or 1100t because all i would have to do was insert the cpu and be done. I think overall i would of be disappointed overall. Thanks for reading my review.

If you want to save some cash get an open box. I saw a Maximus 4 Extreme
reduced from 369.99 to 259.99 because it was opened once. The purchaser
confused the 1155 with 1156.

EDIT: Sorry for revivng the old thread i didn't see that it was more than a week old.

Nice to see a seamless transition. I was a hardcore AMD guy for years until Intel got it's ducks in a row. I owned by the FX-57 and FX-55 (dual core!) back in the day.

Now it's hard to imagine going back.

I assume you had to manually re-activate Win7 due to the motherboard change?
