Amd to intel

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have really been tossing the idea around as of lately of upgrading to sandy bridge. I was looking at this package right here http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.660725

What are the pros and cons of this upgrade to my current setup and is it really worth the price tag!

I have that setup which replaced my Crosshair IV and 1090t. It will indeed destroy the AMD on CPU intensive tasks but for gaming it's kind of a waste right now.

Wait another month and see if bulldozer can catch up to sandy.....

Sure no problem, thanks for the rep.

I don't regret getting it, it's just not the huge change you might be expecting. I am definitely happy I got mine to 5 Ghz.

I retired my 1090t to become a full time folding rig running Linux.

For a rough comparison, I fold on my 2500k when I'm not gaming and with both cpu's getting the same WU, a 7500, they get about the same PPD with the 2500k slightly beating out the 1090t. Now running the Linux client gives a boost over windows for PPD so it's safe to say the 2500k would soundly beat the 1090t if both were running the same everything...

So my 1090t 6 core at 4.1 Ghz is not as fast as a 2500k 4 core at 5Ghz.

I just found out that I will need to building a new pc, so this is the best opportunity for me to just transfer current cpu/mobo and buy a new one.
