2600K or 980x - Page 5

post #41 of 52
I find it humorous when everyone suggests the 2600k over the 2500k even though they are damn near identical. HyperThreading is the only difference between them, yet the 2600k costs ~$100 more. Unless you are doing something like video trans-coding and video editing, then HT is not needed. Games do take advantage of HT.

Kind of but not quite. I was more curious about which chipset would be better in SLI. Not so much in the overall performance of the chip alone.

I am looking at building a new rig and trying to push it. I have seen the value difference in the 2600K when compared to a 780x but my main concern is multiple gpus. I have seen that the LGA 1155 drops the gpus to x8x8 when in SLI. If this is the case wouldn't it be better to go with 1366 when looking to run a SLI?

I am currently looking at getting the MSI N580GTX Lightning GeForce GTX 580.

If this is the case what processor would be better?

Any help or ideas is much appreciated.
My sig mobo runs SLI at x16, save your money and go 1155.

Time is of the essence. I need the money now, not 3 months from now.

Only difference? That's definitely not true.
