I7 2600k for $280 or wait for Bulldozer - Page 7

post #61 of 84
Although I'm not in your guy's class of board, I still like the options that the Z68 board gives you!

Edit:
I'm kinda stuck in a rut right now!
Gonna be quite a while before I do any new upgrading!

Boy this thread moving fast. lol
+1 I was going to mention that board aswell (The Asus WS Rev), but i'm thinking he's looking at price point which really isn't much of a difference compared to the Sabertooth P67 now that i think about it.

There's a figure of diminishing returns out there (hopefully someone can link it) that shows what percentage of Sandy Bridge chips hit 4.5ghz and beyond, and it boils down to about 50% of chips can hit 4.5ghz and stay stable a reasonable vcore.

But hey, 50% is still pretty good odds. Not exactly what I'd call a "guarantee," but still, pretty good odds.
even if i dont get a good one and still can achieve 4.2 -4.3 thats still awesome thanks for the info

Edit** I really like the Revolutions layout but.... the EVGA Ftw is close to that to but the Revolution is clearly better for that upper price range. Anyways don't think i can squeeze out the extra for tri or quad sli board. So just stick to evo or z68 i guess. Enless there is a epic deal on a tri sli $200 board but thats only on 990fx right now it seems oh wells. thx guys

The above was done on a True Black CPU cooler, if you didn't see my other post with the pic.

The truth is nobody knows for sure how well Bulldozer line of chips will perform or won't perform. If you got to have performance now and have the cash to throw around then by all means get the best Intel you can afford. But regardless how well Bulldozer performs, there will always be a better AMD or Intel chip coming out around the corner.

I went with AMD because I can afford them. And that's assuming that the fastest 8-core BD model is under $300. But it's only a matter of time before Intel comes with a true 8 core themselves and hyper-threads it out to 16 threads. Just don't expect for it to be affordable anytime soon.
