2500k for Sony Vegas and CS5? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Actually 2500k is back in stock at Microcenter now I'm not sure what motherboard to get, I think there is a 40 off deal of a mobo with purchase of a core i5 2500k.

I was looking at these ones:

There is an open box for $115 not sure if they can take the $40 off aswell
Asus


BioStar

probably just need anything around $150 then the $40 off.

IMHO, if possible, I'd go for a CPU with HT, if you're going for that sort of software. If HT is enabled, I think your OC might be slightly less, but for those multithreaded applications, it's worth it.

But first, I'd concur that a new, higher quality (not wattage) PSU is needed first. This is a case of quality vs quantity (provided you have sufficient quantity, which shouldn't be an issue for most non-crap PSUs for your setup). Since this will be a productivity machine, I'd go for reliability/stability first. Again, just my opinion. YMMV

I completely agree about a new PSU. If he gets a new PSU then I would have to go with the 2500k. I just don't know what motherboard to get, I will probably get it from Microcenter with the $40 off deal they have right now.

I'm up for recommendations... I haven't followed Intel for a while and I myself I'm waiting for bulldozer.
