just ordered a 2500K did I make the wrong choice? - Page 2

post #11 of 33
lol Kinda late to be asking if you made a bad choice after you've already ordered it But the 2500K is a very capable processor and is amazingly fast.

2500k > 2600k when it comes to gaming alone...2600k with HT on for encoding or things like that...then turn HT off if you want to game...Wont make a huge difference, however there have been some benchmarks that have shown HT to hurt gaming on the sandy bridge..

Seems to be mostly older games that experience a performance loss.

Well it definitely won't have worst performance, but it wasn't exactly the smartest choice imo

the 2500K is faster than the 1090T. it also overclock much higher with the same cooler. in fact the 2nd gen SB are the first of any chips to get 5 GHz (not always possible, nothing is guaranteed with OC) using air cooling i believe.

Sorry to burst the bubble.
So.... you say got you laff at that hole statement

Since you already got it, be comforted in knowing that 2500k is a very good choice (haven't you noticed that almost everyone is always mouthing 2500k or 2600k? lol).

But for those who have Thubans and wondering if they need to jump to SB, keep what you have coz they are still a very nice bunch of cpus.

Dude 2500k will kill everything you have ever owned. Thing is stupid fast and the fact you can get them to 4.5GHz is pretty damn sweet too!
