Looking at a new SB build - advice appreciated! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I have to agree with everyone else you should get the i7-2600k. I also tend to agree you may want a better PSU and with ATI you would probably be fine with a Corsair or XFX 850watt even with 3 way Xfire.

The first Ivy should work with 1155, Sandy Bridge E will be on socket 2011 and I suspect Ivy E will work with 2011, tho can not confirm this 100%.

The SSD will probably also show you a larger gain so you may consider it sooner... make sure you get a SATA III SSD and I'd recommend atleast 120GB.

I would never recommend a hex-core 1366 because of thier price, but they still beat SB in multi-threaded apps. With 6 and 8 core BD versions I think you can expect multi-threaded apps to be an area of strength for BD. Of course, that's not saying SB would be bad - I'm sure you'd be completely happy with one. But 4 cores vs 8 cores could mean a substantial difference in many of those programs you listed - definitely more substantial than 4 cores vs virtual 8 cores via HT.
This...

On the SSD front, i believe c300 64gb's have ben sen on newegg for a mere 100USD, i know you can get the 128gb directly from crucial for 250USD (Im from Aus and i did, only $25 freight), so you could definately look to that as an option.

kthanxbye

i do/planning to do same programs as you. FL studio sooooo cool.
FL ftw! 2600k has been added. My current ram is spec'd at 1866, I'm getting 16 gigs of it. H20 cooling is happening within the year, probably around the time I get back on campus, so this fall.

I'm not giving up three slots for that card. Plus, AMD cards scale much better. And only two display outputs can be active at the same time - so if i wanted to have 3x1 monitors, guess what I get stuck with: a second card. And I am NOT taking up 6 slots on the back of my case with those things. The air circulation would be awful as well... I'd have to see some pretty convincing evidence to sway me towards that ASUS.

PSU is now the Corsair AX1200 - I would never run 3-way-XFire on a 850 watt PSU. Nominally you want to run them at 50-60% load. With the plans for xfire and a cooling loop, I feel I would benefit from the Corsair's output abilities, even if they aren't utilized immediately.

The upgrade to an SSD will happen around the fall, they're just moving too fast for me to make an investment at this point in time.
