2600k or 970 - Page 8

post #71 of 78
If you are going P67, go with the Asrock Extreme4 or Extreme6, both are awesome boards and easy to use. The Extreme6 can be had for $189 shipped right now and it gives you 10 SATA ports, 6 are SATA6. They are definitely the best bang for the buck right now.

the intel retailedge is a great program, the only reason im getting the 970 is because i already have a nice x58 board and its not worth it for me to switch to socket 1155. if i didnt already have my board i would get the 2600k. in fact i got a friend who is on socket 1156 switching to the 2600k/1155

Even games that are less optimized for multi-core will run nearly as well on a 970 as a 2600k because GPUs are clearly the main factor for performance especially as you increase the resolution.

I'd say either go for a westmere/gulftown cpu or wait for ivy bridge but skip sandy unless you wanna break out the OC e-peen. There isnt any point in getting a sandy bridge now seeing as the high end chips will be on a new socket... and really, the 1366 6-core chips have more longevity than the current SB chips imo.
^. Nicely put thats why I bought my 990x.

You might as well wait for all the z68 boards to get reviewed and get one of those. You'll then have access to quick sync and ssd caching.

But i7 x58 faster and still king.
2600k is lower power but little slower. also less cores. Gaming 2600k, folding or editing x58 still better.
Also, isn't the 970 a hexa? You could use 4 threads for gaming while folding on the other 8. I would go with the 970.

Then it would be like gaming on a dual core with hyperthreading.

not to pile on, but it's redundant to say watts/sec since a watt is a joule/sec. If you say that you're saving x watts you're already saying I'm saving x amount of work(electricity, energy) done per unit time.
