Go 2600k or wait?`

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
ATM sitting on a Q9650. ATM it's eating all the games i trow at it, but i figured that its about due for a upgrade.

My question is, would it be any point in waiting for LGA2011 or Ivy, and when will we be seeing this hit the market?

I was thinking that i could sell my board, CPU and ram and probably get a couple of 100$ for the total, and then spend another 200$, I'm afraid that if i wait for a longer time, the socket 775 will be OLD and not as valuable as now.

If it takes everything you throw at it, there's no reason to upgrade.

If you REALLY want to upgrade I'd wait and see how Bulldozer performs, seeing as you're perfectly fine with your current setup,

Definitely wait. Your quad is very good, just cause it's old doesn't mean it isn't good. Even if 775 value goes down, SB prices will be going down, so it will even out. TBH i would wait until Ivy hits before i even think of upgrading. if you had a 65nm quad(gen1 phenom, Q6xxx series) I'd be singing a different tune.

I would wait if I were You. C2Q is still good CPU, so I don't see any reason of changing it right now if You still can play every game on highest details. Wait for IB

You should way, you've already got plenty of power and would probably wouldn't notice any difference. Wait for 2011 or BD if that's what you fancy.

Ok, when can we be expecting 2011/Ivy/BD?

Bulldozer's coming next month, I'm sure one of the 2500k/2600k owners knows when Ivy will come.

Okay, this is my advice.

It's widely known that whatever $ you initially put into something, you are most likely not going to get that money back out. Furthermore, I can already see that you have the "upgrade bug", and it naturally occurs when new hardware comes out and it's difficult to ignore . You still have a great processor and the amount of time/effort, etc that you're going to have to put in to milk that $ that you'll receive selling off your cpu, motherboard, memory most likely isn't even close to the amount that you're about to throw down on a new system. So what I am about to say will require some patience, and you most likely will not go in this direction because it will be a wait... but I personally, with your processor, would wait until Haswell after IvyBridge. With Intel's "Tick/Tock" manufacturing IB(Tick) & Haswell(Tock), Haswell will be the upgrade to get in my opinion. Now I might just be saying that because I already have a i7 2600k processor, but know that I went from a 2.0Ghz C2D to what I have now.
