Overhauling my rig - need advice - Page 2

post #11 of 24

Folding! How the hell did I forget to consider folding!

Anyway, will the difference between the i5 and i7 be THAT noticeable to justify the 90 euro difference between them? My gut instinct tells me no, but I could be wrong.

Also, Bulldozer doesn't sound all that interesting to me, always had Intel processors so I don4t have ANY experience with AMD's stuff.

That said, I get the feeling Bulldozer will cost a lot more than Sandy Bridge does right now.

What do you think?

Also, I still need RAM, preferably 8GB Corsair. Any ideas?

2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 Is a good kit, I have it myself and never had problems with it.

Noticeable in folding yes if ppd are your main concern but an i5 2500k is still a handy tool for ppd.

As for ram perhaps a set of 2x2gb g-skill ripjaws 1600mhz

He said that getting G.Skill ram is pretty hard to get in his country, which I can confirm.

Don't really know much about latencies and whatnot. Here's what I have at my disposal.
I would grab these: http://www.alternate.be/html/product...3&l3=DDR3-1600

The performance difference between different speeds/timings in RAM is negligible. You won't see an appreciable difference unless you're encoding video for hours - in which you may save a few minutes. In normal use there's really no point in paying the premium.

Sorry if this is a noob question; but in general from what I've seen Sandy Bridge processors and motherboards seem to support up to DDR3-1333, won't the DDR3-1600 just run at 1333 MHz, defeating the purpose of buying 1600 MHz?

That DDR3 of Mushkin as an absolute steal, I'd jump on that if i were you for definite.

No not atall many infact most including myself run 1600mhz no problems and some upto 2000mhz no problems, I would try to get memory in the 1.5v range

Looking at both Corsair's Dominator and Vengeance lineup, any important differences to consider?
