2600k or 970 - Page 7

Cheaper, definitely faster in single threaded applications (or I suppose applications using up to 8 threads), but I wouldn't call it just 'better'.
He is asking about folding, where a 970 is faster than a 2600k but it is it worth it to spend more for higher ppd? That one is up to the OP.
If he was asking about using this for a business doing rendering or something where time is money, the 970 would be the obvious choice.

He didn't say that money is no object & it isn't for work, so in this case I would also say the 2600k looks more suitable. Easier overclocking, great gamer & will still get nice ppd.

Other than the G1 Sniper and Asus Rampage III Extreme Black Edition motherboards which cost at least $500, both use a later Marvel (9182) chipset... These will gain full performance of the Vertex 3 SSD (550MB/s)...
All other X58 boards have the Marvel 9128 (like my MB ) which gain up to around 400MB/s read and write speeds...
Oh yeah, Marvel you automatically lose TRIM support on any SSd you connect to it and RAID isn't as good as Intels...

To simply put...

Marvel 9128 uses 1 PCI x- lane
Marvel 9182 uses 2 PCI x- lanes for more throughput...
Intel Sata 6 - TRUE SATA III 6 GB/s*

I built this computer thinking that I can utilize advanced Sata 6GB drives since the motherboard box showed TRUE SATA 6.0 and now to this point, finding out the hard way that the Vertex 3 is too fast for my setup!!!

The X58 Gulftown chip is still a powerhouse and good luck with AMD keeping up (Bulldozer)... Especially for FOLDING and Video Converting...
People who go all out on their machines will consider such a motherboard as the pieces they connect to it are only as good as the motherboard itself right? There is nothing on these ridiculous motherboards that they won't have... Wifi, BT 3.0, top Audio DAC, overclocking on-the-go, and looks

The X58 isn't dying, but is coming to the stage where it will be phased away (Ivy Bridge and Extreme Sandy Bridge)- These two motherboards here just proved that it isn't dead...
But to be more futureproof, and if you don't specifically do FOLDING or anything that takes advtange of the extra 2 cores, i'd say go for the 2600k....

I'm guessing the Intel Retail Edge deal? Either one you cannot lose

1366 is king to folding , and encodeing by alot. Power bill will show.
1155 is king better tech, Lower power foot print. new ivy can fit in it..
he was asking for best ppd. that thats 6core X58 look into it, but for the power bill get 1155. ivy or 2011 pin but thos are way off.
I got my rig setup like i like it. old and good to rock bf3 and fold . Mite get 2011 pin but now im good.
Let us know your pick.

Thread Starter 
I have decided on the 2600k. With Intel Edge I'ts a deal I can not pass up so I wont be waiting for the next new CPU. I don't upgrade often, I built this rig years back, it has a e6750 in it, very nice bang for the buck chip

Can anyone recommended a board? I am thinking about the P8P67 Pro, not sure the deluxe is worth the price for me at this point. Thoughts?

I know it's aesthetics but I like blue/black! =D

Yes i do plan to do some folding, because it sounds fun and I have started a folding group here @ my work (Best Buy). We participate in alot of anti-cancer events and this is something us "Geeks" can shine at.

I game more then anything on my PC so thats a big point in choosing the 2600k. Also the price, less spent on the CPU = more spent on the rest of my rig!

Then again the power consumpsion is a good point too, I live in texas and my power bill is already retarded!


P.S. Anyway to see how my power my computer uses? Id like to know how bad im killing myself by keeping my system up all the time.

Good choice. Also I am quite pleased with the P7P67 Pro. It is a quality board. I too was on the same boat as you are on now with the Pro vs Deluxe. I opted for the Pro and saved the money. The Deluxe is not really worth the extra $50 IMHO.

If you game more than anything, I recommend that you get a 2500K and put the rest towards an SSD (for overall better system speed) (or even two 74GB raptors to put in raid-0) or a nicer GPU to get the same performance in folding. But the 2500k will give you more overclocking room with better processor life and thus better performance in games over the 2600K

He is buying with Intel Edge so his 2600k will cost a lot less than retail. He is probably going to get an Intel SSD for cheap too.
