Go Sandy Bridge now??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I currently have the opportunity to upgrade my sig rig to sandy bridge 2600k now.

CPU: 2600k ($99)

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157229

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231445

Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103065

Which all totals out to 400 bucks.

Ive been waiting a long time to upgrade, however seeing previews of sandy bridge E leave me skeptical.

Should I wait or take the SB?

Thanks!

Where oh where did you find a 2600k for $99?

Can you wait for SBE to be released? If not buy what you have picked out right now.

it will be a nice upgrade from the q series, I notice a nice improvement coming from a Q9400. It is up to you in the end of the day. How much you play, render, or just browse the web.

There is barely any games take take full advantage of the 4 cores let alone 6. You wont see much, if any, improvements from a 4 to 6 core cpu. I know that someone made a thread of i3 vs i7 and they were pretty much the same in most games, and i3 beat i7 in a couple of games.

Wow interesting. Well that's good info to know! Thanks.

I think I'll just upgrade now. Maybe grab another 5870.

One more thing, is z68 better than p67 or something?

They seem like the newer product.

And all I do is game, but I do have a SSD.

And I know z68 can utilize that?
